TFC Tuition Loans
Some students may require more time to make full payment on their education. The APC is partnered with TFC Tuition to provide our students with customized payment plans designed for success after graduation. Loan terms are determined by program cost, length of loan, and risk factor.
All financing options are designed to set our students up for success with minimal down payment and reduces payments while in school.
Before you can fill out your Loan Application, we require you to submit your Enrollment Application and pay your $50 application fee. If you haven't done so, please click here to get started.
Upon completion of the loan application and receipt of your credit report, we will reach out with one of three responses: ACCEPTED, REJECTED, or INCOMPLETE.
An INCOMPLETE status simply means more information is needed to complete the process. REJECTED statuses are not final. In many cases, we will work with applicants to come up with an option that is better suited for their financial situation. We may suggest attending a shorter program or bringing on a co-signer to improve your odds of approval.
Frequently Asked Questions
Before enrollment, students will be required to pay a minimum of 10% of tuition cost plus equipment. Equipment packages can range between $600 and $2,500. Students should expect to pay an average of $2,500 for their total down payment but the exact amount is dependent on their desired program. Students will also have the option of putting more than 10% down to reduce their monthly payments.
The loan will cover all tuition expenses. The only things not included in the loan are equipment and housing. Students will be responsible for the full amount of equipment before starting school and will make housing payments throughout their program.
TFC offers multiple payment options, including online, via mail, or over the phone. Accepted payment types include credit/debit card, ACH debit, or check. It is highly recommended for the success of the student, that they setup ACH debit for auto-drafting their monthly payments.
Credit reports are not required to receive a TFC student loan. At the discretion of the school, a credit report may be requested in order to approve a loan application.
All TFC loans require a cosigner. This is typically a parent, grandparent or spouse but could be anyone over the age of 18 willing to share in the financial responsibility.
Students applying for an TFC Loan are still eligible for scholarships, but discounts will not apply. Scholarships, as well as days tested out of school, will reduce the program tuition cost, but will not apply to the down payment requirement to receive a TFC loan.
