Welcome to Trinity School of Health and Allied Sciences Financial Aid Department!
Furthering your education can be expensive, but it’s not unaffordable. There are many ways you can get financial aid to lessen the cost of furthering your education. The whole concept of financial aid can be overwhelming for many. Where can you find available money and how do you apply for it? And, the deadlines, criteria, paperwork that go hand-in-hand with finding and applying for scholarships and grants can be a long and drawn out process. We are here to help you sort it all out.
To begin any financial aid process, you’ll need to fill out the FAFSA form.
Trinity School of Health and Allied Sciences is proud to offer Financial Aid for our day and evening classes to those who qualify. We are dedicated to helping students and their families pay for their education by providing access to the Federal Aid programs and will assist each student throughout the Financial Aid process.
We invite you to call us at (310) 834-3065 or fill out the form at the bottom of the page to schedule an appointment with our Financial Aid officer.
The Financial Aid programs we participate in are commonly known as:
Federal Pell Grants are usually awarded only to undergraduate students. The amount of aid you are eligible for depends on your financial need, the cost of tuition, and more.
- To be eligible for federal financial aid, a student must meet these requirements:
- High school diploma/transcript, or certificate of high school equivalency, or GED, or certificate of accreditation of courses if a foreign graduate.
- Provide a valid Social Security Number.
- Be a citizen or a permanent resident of the United States.
- For male students, registered with Selective Service or submit a verified exemption from registration.
- Not be in default on any Title IV federal student loan or owe any Title IV federal student grant overpayments.
- Enrolled for the minimum number of hours required for the Title IV federal student aid program. • Make satisfactory progress in their educational program.
- Demonstrate financial need.
- Resolved any drug conviction issue.
Verification is the process of checking the accuracy of the information a student has provided in order to minimize errors when they apply for financial aid. Verification is a requirement only for students selected by the U.S. Department of Education; however, the school may also select students for institutional verification. No financial aid disbursements can be made until verification is completed.
If verification is not completed, the student’s financial aid may be canceled and the student will be asked to make arrangements for payment of tuition without consideration of financial assistance. The student will be notified if the results of verification change the student’s scheduled award.
Family Education Rights and Privacy Act
The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) afford students certain rights with respect to their education records. A copy of the FERPA policy is located in the student handbook. Students are also provided an annual notice each year. Paper copies of Athena Career Academy’s FERPA policy are available upon request from the financial aid department.
National Student Loan Database System
The National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) is the U.S. Department of Education’s (ED’s) central database for student aid. NSLDS receives data from schools, guaranty agencies, the Direct Loan program, and other Department of ED programs. NSLDS Student Access provides a centralized, integrated view of Title IV loans and grants so that recipients of Title IV Aid can access and inquire about their Title IV loans and/or grant data
