By far the best way to pay for your education. Nothing beats graduating with a clean slate without having to repay any student loans. An easy way to do this is to simply save up and pay for it. If you can't afford to pay for it all at once, one option you have is to simply make monthly payments and once you've covered the tuition you're all set. *note: you'll have to have your entire tuition cost covered before you'll be assigned a start date.

Student Loans

If  you must take out a student loan, we understand. Thankfully, with the career path you've chosen you'll be able to knock out this debt extremely quickly. First, contact your local bank and see if they offer any loans for students. This is often the best approach as you'll most likely have a better relationship with your local bank as opposed to a larger institution. But, we can also assist you with this as well. We've helped many students in the past secure student loans. Just give us a call and we'll get to work for you.

We also have a great relationship with the Arkansas Rural Endowment Fund. They have agreed to cover 100% of the tuition and as an added benefit, payments won't start until 6 months after your graduation! You can reach them through the link below.
