Financial aid may consist of funding from one or several sources, including federal, state and/or personal loans. Most financial aid recipients receive a combination “package” consisting of more than one type of assistance. Once personal resources have been explored (savings, credit or other personal funding sources), Federal, State and other agency support will be discussed based on your qualification for those programs. The Institute participates in the following federal programs:
1. PELL Grants
2. Unsubsidized/Subsidized Federal Loans
3. Federal Parent PLUS Loans
4. Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
5. Veterans Administration
In addition, when necessary, The Institute will help a student with in-house payment plans during study.
Each campus has a financial aid representative to assist you with the application processes. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please reach out to the financial aid representative at the campus you want to attend. We have also linked resources below that will help you understand the Financial Aid process.

You may have heard that the federal Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA) provided financial resources to colleges and universities. The resources available through the Higher Education Emergency Relief II (HEER II) Fund allow universities to distribute grants to students in need to cover any component of the student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus.
Students who were active on March 31, 2021 and were eligible for PELL funding were notified directly by the Institution for an automatic grant payment.
Tuition covers the expert knowledge gained, and in-class training undergone, at GCI: two elements necessary for a successful certification.
