Financial Aid FAQ’s
Financial aid is available to all students who are enrolled in an eligible program at Quest College and meet the basic eligibility requirements. The term “financial aid” includes grant programs and loan programs. Grant aid is awarded based upon financial need, but some student loan programs are available to all eligible students regardless of the student’s financial situation.
How To Apply
The starting point for all financial aid is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available online at fafsa.ed.gov. Our Financial Aid Office will gladly assist you with the on-line application process.
Once the application is submitted, it takes up to a week for the Quest College Financial Aid Office to receive the electronic reply from the US Department of Education. The information contained in this document allows the Financial Aid Office to calculate the amount of student aid each student will receive. Learn More
Upon completion of the application process, your Financial Aid Advisor will prepare a “package” of financial aid for you based upon your eligibility and financial need. Your advisor will discuss the timing of aid payments, explain billing and payment procedures and can advise you about alternative financing options.
Please stop by soon and speak with us about your financial aid and financing options. We’d be glad to help!
