We strive to educate you on any loans you may receive at the Academy and to assist you in becoming a responsible borrower. We know that finances can be a scary topic, but putting a practical plan together that feels right to you, as well as being manageable with your expected salary, is the commitment of the Financial Aid staff.
We have a financial plan for everyone!
Combination of Pell Grant, Direct Loans, and PLUS Loan (based on student’s eligibility). To apply, you need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Non-federal loan issued by a lender such as a bank or credit union. Contact a staff member of the Academy’s Financial Aid office for a copy of our Preferred Lenders List, which is available to help you in your research of private lenders.
This can be done in one lump sum or in monthly payments as determined by the Financial Aid office.
Tuition Financing has been providing tuition financing for students since 1970. Their mission is to provide financing for students who are serious about their careers and personal success. All TFC contracts are approved and administered through the Academy’s Financial Aid office.
The Academy participates in the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) GI Bill benefits. For more information, or to request your certificate of eligibility, please Visit here.
Visit Fastweb online to research scholarships.
Federal Student Aid is available to qualified students. Students may be eligible for grants and/or loans to cover qualified educational expenses. The Academy encourages students to only borrow that which is needed.
Visit FAFSA’s website to apply online.
If you have never completed a FAFSA, here is some helpful information:
1.) You will need to apply for an FSA ID online. This feature has replaced the four digit PIN number that was previously used to complete the FAFSA.
2.) If you are a dependent student, your parent will also need to apply for an FSA ID. Generally you are a dependent if you’re under the age of 24, single, and have zero dependents that you support.
Have you created your FSA ID with incorrect information such as entering the wrong social security number or date of birth? Please contact the FSA ID helpline for assistance in correcting the issues: 1-800-557-7394, option 1.
Completing the FAFSA is free and quick, generally taking less than 30 minutes for students to complete. Beware of any websites that charge or ask for a form of payment!
We have compiled a list of the most popular questions future and current students need assistance with when completing the FAFSA. Below are the correct responses, regardless of what program you are enrolled into or interested in:
a. The degree or certificate: certificate or diploma (of less than 2 years)
b. Enrollment status: full time OR ¾ time
c. Our school code: 041836
d. Housing plan can be either off campus OR with family
The FAFSA does ask questions pertaining to you (date of birth, social security number, driver’s license number, etc.) and your finances (tax return, cash savings, etc.). Depending on your situation, you may be required to include similar information regarding your parent(s) or spouse. Please review this short list of documents you may need as you complete the FAFSA here.
If you have never completed a FAFSA before, be sure to review the information under First Time Completing a FAFSA? section above.
Submitting your FAFSA is the first step; next, your FAFSA has to be processed. Once processed, you will receive your Student Aid Report, commonly referred to as a SAR, which contains your Expected Family Contribution, or EFC. The EFC is what the Financial Aid office at your school uses to calculate how much aid you will be awarded.
Once the Academy receives your FAFSA, one of our dedicated Financial Aid Administrators will call you to review your estimated eligibility. In the meantime, please feel free to contact us with questions. Our Financial Aid Administrators are available via email at FinancialAid@KenoshaTSPA.com or via telephone at 262.697.6000 x17.
