Yes. To apply for a student loan, please visit www.YourTuitionSolution.com. The Center is one of 1,200 independent schools chosen as an approved school and CEE parents are eligible to apply directly to Your Tuition Solution.
In extending financial aid to a family, The Center attempts to support the student's attendance for the entire time he/she is enrolled, pending continued need. If your financial circumstances change, and your ability to contribute to your child's educational expenses increases, your award may be decreased accordingly. If your ability to pay educational expenses decreases, The Center will make every effort to increase the award.
If parents are living separately, both custodial and non-custodial parents must complete a FAST application and submit all required documents as we expect both parents will contribute to the education of their child.
If a parent’s whereabouts is unknown, or a claim is made stating there is no involvement in the child’s upbringing, application forms may not be required, but documentation will be required to verify that the parent has no contact with the applicant.
Financial information is required of all adults, including step-parents, involved in the applicant’s life. The financial information submitted to FAST must include all household income and assets.
Remarriage of either parent creates a new family unit with new relationships, but we believe that natural (or adoptive) parents still have a responsibility for educational expenses.
