Financial Aid Available
Funding education can be difficult and stressful. At The Travel Academy we make it easier. We want to focus on getting you trained and hired into your new travel career. Below are the financial aid options we currently offer. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding the financial aid.
Minnesota Self Loan (300 Hour Expanded Program Only)
The Minnesota SELF Loan is a low interest student loan available for the 300 hour expanded program. This student loan can cover funding for tuition, student housing, transportation, and more. The SELF Program helps students who need assistance in paying for education beyond high school. The SELF Program is state owned and operated by the Minnesota Office of Higher Education. Note: You do not have to be a Minnesota Resident to apply. A credit worthy cosigner is required to apply. You must enroll in the 300 hour program before you apply for your student loan. Please Note: you can apply for class within 30 days before the start date as long as your SELF loan is approved before class begins or you have a different way to pay your tuition & housing. Please apply for the SELF Loan as soon as possible with a credit worthy cosigner. Processing times of the Self Loan vary depending upon the government time frame. Loans could be approved in as little as 24 to 48 hours or you pay your tuition and housing with some other means.
