Financial Aid is available to those who qualify

Financial aid (for those who qualify) comes in three different forms.

  • Federal Grants. A grant is money provided by the government that does not have to be paid back. These funds can be used to help cover tuition as well as living expenses in some cases.
  • Subsidized Loans. These are loans made to eligible undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need. They can be used to help cover the costs of higher education at a college or career school.
  • Unsubsidized Loans. These are loans made to eligible undergraduate, graduate, and professional students. In this case, the student does not have to demonstrate financial need to be eligible for the loan.

Financial Literacy is important to us!

The understanding of financial literacy is of utmost importance to our educational process. We strive to help you become a hirable and financially responsible graduate. It is a mission we take very seriously.

Navigating student loan debt can be overwhelming. However, Hays Academy offers education in how to best manage your loans. This education includes paying interest early, making payments before loans are due and setting up automatic payments. Students have an open-door policy with our staff to ask questions and gain knowledge on their own student loan situations.
