Monthly Payment Plans

From zero-interest monthly payment plans to extended financing support, CIAT’s in-house financing plans help make sure you’re covered to pursue your goals.

Financial Aid

Our Financial Aid Office is committed to providing assistance to qualified students who would otherwise be unable to pursue the attainment of their educational and professional goals. To begin your application process, first complete the government’s FAFSA form at fafsa.gov. Our school code is 042598. You’ll need this and financial documents, like tax returns and pay stubs, to complete the application. You must re-apply for FAFSA for every year.

Military Benefits

After their service, many veterans choose to move into the field of IT. The GI Bill® can be used not only for an Associate’s or Bachelor’s degree within information technology, but it can also be used for many of the invaluable certifications required. In fact, due to DoD 8570.01, a Department of Defense directive requiring information assurance personnel to be certified, IT certification can be mandatory for most DoD related positions.

Scholarships

In addition to CIAT-offered scholarships, you will have access to a database where you can research different outside scholarships that have been made known to CIAT through other students, organizations, and businesses. You are free to apply to as many of these scholarships as you’d like. Just make sure you report any outside scholarships you receive to the Student Financial Services Office so we can apply it to your package.

Private Loans

When scholarships and federal financial aid aren’t enough, private loan help you cover any remaining personal investment balances. CIAT has two private financing options – Sallie Mae and Credit Climb – to support the needs of students with a wide range of credit backgrounds and financial history.

Don’t struggle alone. Our Admissions Team will be happy to set up a complimentary financial aid consultation to find the financing option that’s right for you.
