Paying For Your Amberton Education
Paying for your education doesn’t have to be a scary undertaking. At Amberton University, our pay-as-you-go system allows students to graduate without any debt. However, for those who need to take advantage of student loans, we make navigating the financials as simple as possible.
Amberton believes in affordable education. We offer courses for $795 per 3 credit hours. Pretty great, right? This rate applies to undergraduate, graduate, in-state and out-of-state students, as well as lecture and distance-learning courses. Even better, we’ve already done the math and the educational cost breakdown for you. At Amberton, our up-front, cost-effective tuition is specifically designed for the working adult. Our goal is to get you to graduation without being buried in educational debt.
Now that you know how much to expect to pay for your tuition, you can figure out just what you need to do to budget for it. Many companies offer tuition assistance or reimbursement as an added benefit for employees. They understand and appreciate how beneficial an educated workforce is. But if your employer isn’t paying for your education, and you can’t afford to pay for it out-of-pocket, there are loan solutions for private universities.
Amberton University provides a Private Loan Worksheet to help you determine your estimated cost of tuition, fees, and books. You must complete the worksheet prior to applying for a private student loan.
In order to qualify for private student loans, students must meet the following criteria:
Student borrowers enrolled at least half-time may apply. Generally, undergraduates are considered half-time if they are enrolled in 6 hours per session, while graduates must be enrolled in 3 hours.
The minimum loan amount is currently $1,000.00. Students may be able to borrow up to the full cost of tuition, fees, and books as certified by the University. Amberton will only certify loan amounts for the estimated costs of tuition, fees, and books for the loan period, usually one academic year. Your loan will not be approved to cover living expenses.
A quick Google search will also provide you with various lender options. Find the one that best fits your financial situation and keep in mind interest rates, repayment options, and deferment and forbearance.
Sallie Mae® currently offers loans to qualified Amberton students through the Smart Option Student Loan® program. Students can make application directly on-line and receive an approval decision usually within a few hours.
Amberton’s staff are eager to assist you in achieving educational success and satisfaction. You can reach our Director of Financial Aid at firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact Student Services at (972) 833-0153 to help you navigate the process and get your future started!See All Blogs
