Financial Aid

 

Financial Aid Planning Partners.

At International Business College, you and your family work individually with a financial aid representative to develop a personalized financial plan to cover the costs of investing in your education.   

There are several types of financial aid programs available for those who qualify:

  • Federal Pell Grants 
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants  
  • Federal Direct Subsidized Stafford Loans 
  • Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loans 
  • Federal Direct PLUS Loans (Parent Loans)
  • Alternative and Personal Loans
  • School Payment Plans

In addition, IBC is approved for the training of veterans. Various governmental agencies have also sponsored students at International Business College.

Each type of financial aid program has its own criteria and rules. Awards can vary based on each person's and each family's situation and some programs require applying by a deadline. Your financial aid representative can guide you through the process of applying for financial aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and will  work with you to help optimize your financial aid plan.

Note that the school's financial aid administrator has the authority to compensate for special and unusual circumstances on a case-by-case basis with adequate documentation.  Upon request, the financial aid administrator may evaluate the family's situation and make appropriate adjustments to more accurately reflect the financial need of students and families.  This authority is called professional judgment.  Under professional judgment, the financial aid administrator may not change the eligibility formula itself, but may adjust inputs to the data elements and/or override the student's dependency status.  The changes are dictated by the student and family's current circumstances and on their income and assets.  

The decision of the financial aid administrator is final.  There is no appeal.  By law, neither the school president nor the US Department of Education can override the financial aid administrator's decision.  

As long as you stay enrolled full-time at International Business College, tuition rates are set at the time you start and will never go up from semester  to semester.
