Students attending an accredited college, like ATA, are eligible for Federal Financial Aid to assist in paying for tuition. In addition to student loans, this aid can provide free grant money to attend school.
Federal student loans offer low fixed interest rates; income-based repayment plans; loan forgiveness; and deferment (postponement of repayment) options, including deferment of loan payments when a student returns to school. Generally, repayment of a federal loan does not begin until after the student leaves school. More information is available at StudentAid.gov/federal-vs-private.
The Pell Grant is provided to students by the U.S. Government depending on financial need. The 2019-2020 award year is $6,195.
The My Career Advancement Account Scholarship (MyCAA) is a workforce development program that provides up to $4,000 of tuition assistance to eligible military spouses. The scholarship assists military spouses in pursuing licenses, certificates, certifications or associate degrees necessary to gain employment in high-demand, high-growth portable career fields and occupations.
