Investing In A PAFA Education

We understand that financial consideration is one of the most important factors in choosing what school to attend. With that in mind, PAFA is fully committed to providing you with all relevant information in a simple and easy to understand way. We are here to guide you through all of your available options and are happy to assist you at any point during the process.

In addition to our reasonable tuition rates, we offer a number of financial aid and assistance options for eligible students. These include scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study programs. We also offer other types of aid, like employer tuition remission and veterans’ benefits.

Our goal is to make it financially possible for every qualified applicant to enroll at PAFA and pursue their dreams. Therefore, we encourage you to explore all of the opportunities available and apply early for financial aid.
