STUDENT FINANCIAL AID & TRADE SCHOOL GRANTS

Many students wonder how to pay for college when federal student aid or loans do not meet all of a student’s financial needs.  There are additional student financial aid programs that do not typically make up a substantial portion of a student’s aid package and may not be available to all students. However, for students that do qualify, they may be of significant benefit. Apex Tech strongly urges all of our students to take a little time and contact the individual programs and do a little research on the internet, or at your local library, to learn about these lesser known programs.
