Financial Aid Made Easy!

Don’t let lack of funds be the reason you miss out on a great learning opportunity. We offer multiple payment and financial aid options to cover tuition at Retail Ready.

Students interested in financing their education at Retail Ready Career Center have the option of applying for approval of a private loan. If you have completed and returned the Conditional Letter of Acceptance from Retail Ready Career Center, you have already given enough information and permission to run a credit check to see if you qualify. We can also send you a credit application to fill out and return, and it generally takes 24-72 hours to receive back the results.

Please contact a Financial Aid Counselor for further assistance and to see if you qualify for a private student loan.

Did You Know:

Credit score is one of the main determining factors as to whether or not to offer you financing. Your credit score will also help determine what interest rate you will be eligible for. Retail Ready Career Center has a two level policy for loan eligibility and interest rates. Level 1 or Tier 1 is for those with a minimum FICO score of 710 or higher. Level 2 or Tier 2 is for those with a FICO score of 676 to 709. If your credit or FICO score is below 676, you do not qualify for the loan program. Depending on what tier you may qualify for, a co-buyer may not be necessary, however they are always encouraged, and your loan may come with an incentive for having a co-buyer. Co-buyers must have a minimum credit or FICO score 710 or higher. There may be other stipulations depending on your circumstances.
