Types of Grants Available to Students

Cyber Technology Scholarship
The university offers students institutional grants based on financial need and availability of funds. To qualify for the grant, students must submit proof of income for the most recent calendar year.

This income-based scholarship is awarded to students on an annual basis to assist with the acquisition of technological resources (computer, laptop, software, etc.) for $700 and must be renewed annually by way of application. Eligible students must demonstrate financial need and maintain a 3.0 or highergrade point average. The student must also submit an essay on how the funds will assist with the completion of their degree.

Grant Application Process

Many students find it helpful to discuss their situation with one of our agents to plan and arrange funding for their education through one or more applicable grants.

The process is as follows:
1 Go to the University Website and download the grant application.
2 Fill out truthfully your application and attach proof of eligibility and any other documentation that can help verify your credentials.
3. Within 2 weeks, the university reviews your application and responds with a decision or requests further documentation.
4. Students will be informed through email and must agree by signing on the grant approval letter within 5 business days, failure to return your approval automatically transfers the offer to the next applicant on the waiting list.

Grant Withdrawal and Re-entry Policy

Grant recipients who decide to withdraw from the university will forfeit any un-disbursed Grant funds earned before their withdrawal. If the students re-enter a program, he/she should re-apply for the Grant.

University’s Payment Plans and Financial Assistance

For all students who prefer to pay out of pocket, there are several payment plans available. Payment plans are discussed during meetings where the student is evaluated, privately and impartially, to determine the dollar amount that they and their family can be expected to contribute to their education. This amount is then compared to the associated cost of education, including tuition, fees, housing, meals, transportation, certain living expenses, books, and supplies. Payment arrangements must be made before the start of the term/semester. This means that students on a tuition payment plan must make their first payment before the term begins. The University does not charge interest rates on its payment plan.
