Question: What is a Virtual Tour?
Answer: A Virtual Tour is a tour conducted via video chat through Zoom where everyone is on camera. The Admissions Advisor & Financial Aid Advisor will guide you through a Power Point that answers all of your questions about curriculum, coursework, program schedules, Temporary Distance Learning, returning on campus classes, apparel code, books and kit and much, financial aid, payments options and much more.
Question: How long does the Virtual Tour take?
Answer: A Virtual Tour Takes About an hour and half. The reason it is this time frame is because you also have the opportunity to find out information about the financial aid process.
Question: Can I still fill out a FAFSA?
Answer: The FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. During your Virtual Tour you will be guided how to start the FAFSA process. There is no commitment or pressure to enroll at this time. It is just to get you started with an estimate what your “Out of Pocket Cost” might be.
Question: What is “Out of Pocket Cost”?
Answer: Depending if you qualify for Financial Aid, you can have loans or grants. Grants do not have to be paid back. Loans are paid back 6 months after you graduate over a 10 year period.
