Affording Your Education
Vista College offers numerous scholarships to qualifying student candidates. These scholarships and grants enable eager learners to offset the costs of an exceptional on-campus or online Diploma, Certificate, or Degree program.
High School Scholarship Award
Recent high school graduates who apply for admission to Vista College and enroll in class starts to start within 12 months of high school graduation are eligible to apply for the Vista College High School Scholarship. To be eligible for consideration, applicants must complete the requirements outlined below, then must start school and pass the first five weeks of the program.
Other Financial Aid Opportunities
In addition to the Vista College scholarship and grants, you may be eligible for other sources of funding and loans through several government and non-profit agencies.
- Federal Student Aid: The United States government offers more than $100 billion dollars in federal student aid funding to cover tuition, books, materials, and other coursework necessities. The amount you are eligible for depends upon multiple factors. Your repayment schedule will be outlined before you accept this type of funding.
- Federal Student Loans: You must complete the FAFSA to qualify for these Department of Education-sponsored programs.
- Federal Pell Grant: Because the federal Pell Grant is not a loan, it does not need to be repaid. This makes it an outstanding option for qualified students.
- Parent Plus Loans: Do your parents or guardians have excellent credit? The federal government offers loans they can take out to help you complete your Diploma, Certificate, or Degree coursework.
- Military or Veteran Benefits: Students who have served or who currently serve in the United States military have opportunities to receive funding from the government. The objective of this funding stream is to make getting into the private or public workforce easier for those who have given to their country in this capacity.
- Trade Adjustment Assistance Funding: This type of funding is primarily for those who may have been displaced or adversely affected by foreign trade situations and outcomes. Those receiving TAA Funding are required to follow prescribed Certificate, Diploma, and Degree schedules and coursework.
- Tribal Bureau of Indian Affairs Funding: Are you a member of a federally-recognized tribe? You may be eligible for tribe-specific sponsorships. One of our financial aid officers can walk you through the process to determine if you have the documentation necessary to take advantage of this funding source.
- Rehabilitation Services Funding: Students with documented disabilities may qualify for this funding stream, which is based on a personal assessment. Employment is the ultimate goal of Rehabilitation Services Funding, so courses must be pre-approved before classes can begin.
Take the first step by creating an FSA ID. It takes just a few minutes, and opens the doors to communicating within the financial aid system.
