Financial Aid & Tuition and Fees - please visit the Financial Aid Office webpage for the current tuition/fees schedule and financial aid information.  Most financial aid in the form of educational loans is not available to students unless they are enrolled in a degree program and taking at least 6 credits.  The CPA Completion Program is not a degree program. There are Alternative Lenders that will lend to those in non-degree status and taking less that 6 credits.  Please visit the Financial Aid webpage and put the word "lenders" in the search area and scroll down the list of lenders of this type.
