Financial Aid: Funding Your Education
An Investment in Your Future
Financial Aid is Available to Those Who Qualify
Education and career training can be one of the most valuable investments you can make. Successful investment in your future can help you pursue a professional career. Many students require financial assistance and at Prism Career Institute Financial Aid is available for those who qualify.
Prism Career Institute’s experienced Financial Aid administrators will assist and support you every step of the way through the application process. Our knowledgeable staff can guide you through available financial assistance options.
If you are eligible, The Prism Career Institute can help you secure a number of types of aid, including grants, loans and other financing options. All of our programs qualify for federal Title IV financial aid programs. We assist with all the paperwork. For further assistance, contact the Financial Aid Department to help evaluate your eligibility for federal student loans, grants and other types of programs.
All students seeking federal grants and loans must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). General requirements for student financial aid programs mandate that students must a) be U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens; b) have a high school diploma or its recognized equivalent; and c) be making satisfactory progress in their courses of study.

Net Price Calculator
At Prism Career Institute, it’s important that you feel comfortable and well-informed. We respect our potential students and want you to have a clear picture of what it will realistically cost to attend school and train for a rewarding new career.
The Net Price Calculator is designed to help you get a meaningful estimate of total, out-of-pocket costs, based on your particular financial circumstances and anticipated aid.
How It Works
The calculator first factors cost of attendance including tuition and fees, room and board, books/supplies, transportation and personal expenses. Using Financial Data you enter, the calculator then estimates the amount that you/your family would be expected to contribute to pay school expenses. Finally, the calculator evaluates your eligibility for Financial Aid (need-based) by matching your financial and personal characteristics to the criteria used to determine financial aid awards.
To complete the calculator you will need to answer some basic questions about you/your family’s financial situation. It may be helpful to have recent tax forms and pay stubs/income statements on hand before you begin.
Please Note: Results from this tool are only an estimate of financial aid eligibility. The accuracy of estimated awards is based on information provided and on the assumption that the student will complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Future costs and financial aid estimates are subject to change. Final eligibility for federal and state financial aid is determined by the U.S. Department of Education. Actual financial aid awards, if approved, may differ from this estimated figure.
