Frequent Financial Aid Questions
Any student seeking financial aid funds should apply online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.
Generally, a student applying for FAFSA who is under the age of 24, unmarried, not supporting any dependents, and is not working toward a professional degree is considered “Dependent” on the FAFSA. This means that the applicant will need to provide parental information on the FAFSA including income tax and other financial information.
Once the school receives a valid FAFSA, the Financial Aid office will send an award letter with a breakdown of all the financial aid program types and amounts the student qualifies for.
The main difference is who is responsible for the interest on the loan. Subsidized loan interest is paid on behalf of the borrower by the government while the student is at least a half-time student, in an eligible program and up to six months after leaving school. The Unsubsidized loan interest is the responsibility of the borrower, and any unpaid interest will be capitalized on the loan, at the time of repayment.
The answer is, yes. The Department of Education allows financial aid to also be used for costs associated with attending school, such as, room and board, personal, and transportation expenses.

I see you offer housing/residential program. Do I have to live at the Extended Stay Hotel? Does the tuition cover the hotel cost?
The housing is for students who are either International or from out of state. We have many local Orlando students on a daily basis that commute. We also have out of state and International students who find other accommodations nearby. The associated hotel cost is paid directly to the hotel on a monthly basis. We have secured extremely affordable NPTI student housing pricing.
