Federal Pell Grant

  • For those students who do not qualify for financial aid or for those that assistance does not cover 100% of their educational expenses Adult Technical Training offers a payment plan.

  • All classes are arranged to be paid on a quarterly basis; meaning money is collected quarterly.  For example, with a full-time program, the entire balance is not due in the first quarter; it is divided throughout the year by the beginning of each quarter.
  • No interest is charged for those interested in a payment plan.
  • Payments being made to the school, for a student, can be made by cash, check, or Visa or MasterCard.
  • Contact The Career Center – Adult Technical Training Financial Aid office at 740-373-6283 for further information.
