What financial aid is available? It's a common question students ask before enrolling at Ashworth College. It's an understandable question. Balancing your dreams of launching a new career or taking the next step forward in your current one with the financial responsibilities you currently have is a challenge.

Ways Ashworth College helps students graduate

No, Ashworth College does not accept or offer federal financial aid or private student loans and instead is committed to making tuition affordable for students. A college education without using student loans may seem impossible, but Ashworth students are able to graduate without using it. Here are a few ways we help students graduate without using student loans.

Affordable tuition

A college education can be critical to career success. We don't want tuition to be a financial burden that prevents students from getting what they want–and deserve–for themselves and their families. In fact, you can get started at Ashworth College with as little as $20! Once you’re enrolled, you can set up a payment plan that won’t break the bank.

All materials included

Beyond tuition, the extra costs of college can often surprise students. From books to transportation to additional student fees, these small costs can add up to a significant amount. For Ashworth students, however, everything is included in your tuition, which means there are no extra fees for things like books, study guides, and academic support. Avoiding these costs and knowing the exact price of tuition helps students fit paying for their education into their budget and avoid the need for federal or private student loans.

Payment options

Paying for college is a big investment, even with affordable tuition. You are making a financial commitment, but also a commitment to yourself and your family. Doesn't it make sense that commitment is on your terms? At Ashworth College, students choose how they want to pay for college with flexible payment options. Our admissions team walks every student through their tuition payment options so you can understand your choices and select the plan that fits your financial situation and life.
