Financial assistance is available to those students who qualify and who are enrolled in a program of training of 600 clock hours or more. The primary sources of financial aid offered by Collins Career Center are Title IV Federal Pell Grants and Federal Direct Loans. The Pell Grant does not require repayment and is available to assist eligible students with tuition and school-related expenses. Eligibility for the Pell Grant is based on criteria such as the student's prior year income, tax paid, earned-income credit, family size and selected program of training. The Federal Direct Loan program are funds borrowed that must be repaid with interest.
