Financial Aid

Types of financial aid:  Federal student loans and federal Pell Grants are available to eligible students entering the Center.  Additional funding sources for those who qualify may include the Trade Readjustment Act, Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, Workforce Investment Board, and Veterans Benefits. 

Application Procedure:  To apply for federal student aid you must meet minimum standards of satisfactory academic progress.  Academic progress is checked at the end of each payment period (450 clock hrs and 16 weeks).  Students must successfully complete 100% of the clock hours within the payment period and earn a grade of 80% or higher in graded class hours and a grade of satisfactory in all clinical hours.  Clinical hours are graded on a basis of satisfactory or unsatisfactory.  If a student does not meet the minimum requirements in any payment period, the student will not be eligible to receive any additional financial aid until the deficiency is made up.  Students can reestablish eligibility for financial aid by successfully completing all hours not previously completed with the required grade of 80%.  There is no readmission for clinical failure.  Full time students have a maximum of 64 weeks to complete the program.  All students are expected to comply with this policy; no appeals are accepted.

To be eligible for federal loans, you must be enrolled in at least half-time study. 

Academic Year:  An academic year at the LPN Career Center is 900 clock hours.  The length of the program is 1,547 clock hours.

Excess Student Financial Aid Funds:  All excess student financial aid funds will be refunded to you within 14 days of the date the balance occurs on your account.

Refunds:  Refunds are made according to the Center's refund policy, included in the Student Handbook.

All financial aid funds are to be used for payment of tuition, supplies, fees and other costs you may have to attend the Center. For more information, contact the Administrative Specialist, Jean Moll at jmoll@csiu.org or (570) 768-4960 ext. 25.
