For anyone going, or having gone to Kaplan, what types of financial aid is available? Or, how did you finance the tuition?

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks

ok - well i just completed mine. their financial aid office here in las vegas is incredible!!! much faster than our community college- you will know pretty much that day (if you have aid before) or within a few days depending on the fafsa return.

my tuition cost $25 k

i received the full pell grant plus one other grant- come to a little over $6k

the rest of it was divided into 2 loans -

sub & unsub - around 17k in loans

i had about $1,300 that was not covered and i had the option to take out a private loan through the school - also an easy process but with higher interst rates. to avoid the rates, i decided to just pay cash $117 a month for 11 months while i am attending school.

i was more than surprised at how easy everything was. hope this helps! i had an efc of 0 so if you have a higher efc the remaining amount will be higher than mine.

Thanks soo much for the info candigirl1985!!! I was told the other day i pretty much got into the program..so im just waiting on the "politics" of everything. I don't think i'll get the pell grant my efc is like 7036 i think. oh well. Thats good that they let you make payments!!! congrats. when do you start school?

what is efc? I take it is some qualifying factor based on income?

thanks for the information! if you have any other tidbits (candygyrl, ashlie), please share because it's good to go to those folks prepared.
