Financial Aid

We are happy to announce that we have been provisionally approved to receive Title IV funding from the U.S. Department of Education ( www.ed.gov ). This approval means that we are able to accept the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at both our Seattle and Lafayette campuses.

Federal student aid includes:

  • Grants — financial aid that doesn’t have to be repaid (unless, for example, you withdraw from school and owe a refund)
  • Loans — borrowed money for college or career school; you must repay your loans, with interest

VA Educational Benefits:

  • GI Bill® - Education Programs offered to veterans, service members and their dependents.

Louisiana State student aid includes:

TOPS (Taylor Opportunity Program for Students) is a program of state scholarships for Louisiana residents who attend either one of the Louisiana Public Universities and Colleges, schools that are part of the Louisiana Community and Technical College System, Louisiana approved Propriety and Cosmetology Schools or institutions that are a part of the Louisiana Association of Independent Colleges and Universities. www.osfa.la.gov/AwardSystem

AIE has a tuition reduction scholarship:

  • Need Based Scholarship (opening every Spring)

Many organizations offer scholarships or grants to help students pay for college. This free money can make a real difference in how affordable your education is. (Check with Chambers of Commerce of your City, Kiwanis Club, Lion's Club, Heritage Societies such as Son's of Norway, Italian American Society, etc).

Here is what you need to know:

  • Submit your FAFSA at fafsa.ed.gov. The FAFSA for 2017 - 2018 is now available.
  • AIE Seattle’s school code for FAFSA is 042236.
  • AIE Lafayette’s school code for FAFSA is 042484.
  • Award notices for qualified applicants will be sent out mid summer 2017.
  • If you and your family are new to FAFSA, visit studentaid.ed.gov/fafsa.
  • We recommend completing the FAFSA as soon as possible, as some funds are awarded on a first-come first-served basis.
  • If you intend on taking on Student Loans, please submit a Master Promissory Note and complete Entrance Loan Counseling at StudentLoans.gov.
  • You may be required to fill out additional forms for AIE. We will notify you if this is the case.
