At Branford Hall, we believe in helping you find a way to reach your career goals. Our Financial Aid administrator will help you apply for financial aid if you are eligible. To begin, we will work with you one-on-one to complete the FAFSA form (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). This form helps to determine what financial aids options might be available to you. From there, we can help you set up a payment plan that works for you.
Financial Aid Options
There are a variety of financial aid plans, and we can help you find the one that is right for you. Some of the funds are from federal programs while others are in-house financing plans. Our Financial Aid Administrator will work with you one-on-one to develop a plan that works for you.
Availability for financial aid is subject to change, based on state and federal regulations. The financial aid programs available to students at Branford Hall Career Institute are made available through the U.S. Department of Education and Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended.
Programs at Branford Hall’s Danbury, CT campus are not eligible for Federal Financial Aid programs. However, the school will work with students to come up with a flexible finance plan that meets their needs.
Below are some loan opportunities that may be available to you:
William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program (FDLP)
If you are attending school on at least a half-time basis, you may apply for a loan through the FDLP. The U.S. Department of Education determines eligibility based on financial need through a standard formula. Direct loans and direct parent loans are available. For more information about these loans, students should consult the Financial Aid Administrator at Branford Hall or the FDLP website.
Branford Hall students and/or the parents of dependent students may qualify for a number of tax credits for educational expenses. If you want to learn more about tax credits for education, visit the Tax Benefits for Education Information Center through the IRS.
GI Bill Educational Benefits
The Department of Higher Education, under Title 38 United States Code, has approved the programs at various Branford Hall Career Institute locations for education benefits. To determine if you are eligible for VA benefits, and to obtain the necessary application (VA Form 22-1999 or VA Form 22-5490), contact the Veterans Affairs Office by calling (800) 827-1000 or by visiting the GI Bill national web site.
Payment Plans and Other Resources
On an individual basis, Branford Hall may arrange installment payment plans for students, which would be paid directly to the school or its agent.
There are other programs that can help you fund your education. These include Veterans’ Benefits and state-specific programs such as Workforce-In-Action (WIA), Workforce Development Programs (WDP), Trade Act, and Vocational Rehabilitation. These programs and their eligibility requirements may vary from state to state. Therefore, we encourage you to contact your local and state worker assistance offices for more information.
