Financial aid is financial assistance to students whose resources may not fully cover the costs of acquiring a college education. It consists of a combination of grants, low cost loans, reimbursement and other arrangements. Grants are considered gift aid and do not have to be repaid. Loans are funds lent to a student in order to help defray college education expenses and must be repaid. There are multiple sources of assistance beyond the Federal Title IV programs. All those in which the school participates, are discussed below; however, the student is encouraged to investigate any source that might arise. For instance, scholarships are varied and ever-changing.
Prospective students and their parents are encouraged to meet with a Financial Aid Officer of the school. Centura College is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a proprietary institution of higher education for the purpose of student participation in federal grant and loan programs. In order to be eligible for any of our programs, you must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress. Since all aid received from any Federal Family Education Loan Program must be used only for educational purposes, students receiving such aid must sign a Statement of Education Purposes, promising that the assistance received will be used only for expenses related to attending school. Applications for all types of financial aid are available from the campus Financial Aid Officer.
