ATS offers several tuition financing options, each designed to make it easy and
affordable to enroll in any of our training programs. You can apply for financing by filling
out our online application.
Career loans can be used to pay for tuition, dormitory, and other expenses. The student
makes a down payment upon enrolling in class and a loan can be used to cover the
balance of the training cost. These loans can also be used to obtain additional cash to
help a student pay for other living expenses while in school.
- Loan Option 1:
USA Finance may make a loan to an individual for tuition and in-school housing.
The student makes a down payment upon starting class, and the balance of tuition
and housing can be financed. The down payment amount is determined after the
USA Finance Credit Application is received and reviewed.
- Loan Option 2:
Many national banks offer "Career Loans" to their customers. Students should
talk with their local bank about a "Career Education" loan.
Students should submit a Financing Application by mail, fax or
online. Please allow 48 hours for approval from receipt of Financing Application(s).
Financing applicants should provide a copy of a driver's license with their Financing
State & Federal Grants
Many of our students may qualify for state or federal grants to help them cover training
costs. Students receiving unemployment benefits may be eligible to receive these benefits
while in training. Examples of these are:
- Workforce Investment Act (WIA)
- Department of Workforce Development
- Trade Adjustment Act (TAA)
- Displaced Workers
- Displaced Farmers
- Vocational Rehabilitation
- Tribal Education (BIA)
- Veteran's Benefits (VA)

Students applying for loans should be aware that their credit record plays an important
role in qualifying for financing. Students with a negative credit record should attempt
to get a co-signer with good credit.
