Federal Pell Grants 

A Pell Grant is money the U.S. federal government provides for students who need it to help pay for school. A Pell grant is gift aid offered to students with financial need, who have not yet earned a bachelor's degree, and does not need to be repaid.

Federal Direct Student Loans

Direct Loans are low-interest loans for students and parents to help pay for the cost of a student's education after high school. With Direct Loans, you borrow directly from the U.S. Department of Education and have a single contact, your loan servicer, for everything related to repayment, even if you receive Direct Loans at different schools. You can choose from several repayment plans, and you can switch repayment plans if your needs change.

IRS Tax Credits

There are two tax credits that students (or their parents) may be eligible to claim. A tax credit reduces the amount of income tax you have to pay. Unlike a deduction, which reduces the amount of income subject to tax, a credit directly reduces the tax itself. Eligible students may receive up to the maximum credit of $2,500 as a refund (or a reduction in tax liability). Students with low income who are not required to pay any income tax in 2011 may be eligible for a refundable credit of up to $1,000.The American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning Credits are detailed in IRS Publication 970. Both credits have income limits and other conditions. Consult your accountant for details.

GI Bill for Veterans

The Center for Neurosomatic Studies is approved by the State Approving Agency for financial assistance for eligible veterans. Students eligible for VA benefits should contact the Admissions office.

Discontinued Programs:

If the school discontinues instruction in the program after students enter training, including circumstances where the school relocates outside the Clearwater, FL metro area, students must be notified in writing of such events and are entitled to a full refund of all tuition and fees paid unless comparable training is arranged for by the school and agreed upon, in writing, by the student.  A written request for such a refund must be made within 90 days from the date the program was discontinued or relocated and the refund must be paid within 30 days after receipt of such a request.
