Student Financial Aid is available to help the student meet the difference between the amount he/she can afford to pay and the actual cost to attend one of the Schools of Radiation and Imaging Technologies. The amount the student and his/her family can afford to contribute is determined by a need analysis. Need is established by filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at the website studentaid.gov or by paper FAFSA and mailing it to the federal processor. The FAFSA code for all schools is 004117. A Student Aid Report (SAR) is provided to the student online.
No financial aid is disbursed until the student is enrolled in the program of study. The payment period for financial aid is by semester.
