Financial Aid

Five Branches University is an accredited institution of higher education approved to participate in federal financial aid programs. Our financial aid programs assist more than 80% of our students in meeting the financial costs of their education.

The financial aid office can assist you to identify the sources of financial aid to best suit your educational needs. We understand that furthering your education requires a significant investment of your time, energy and resources and deciding how to fund your education involves solid information and careful planning. We recommend you determine your financial plan as early as possible so you can focus on your academic responsibilities once the MTCM program begins.

If you have questions or need further information you can contact us by phone, via email or make an appointment to meet with a financial aid advisor. We hope to make your financial aid experience a pleasant one.

Federal Student Financial Aid Program

Federal financial aid programs are intended to provide financial assistance to students who, without such assistance, would be unable to meet educational costs at the University. Educational costs include tuition, fees, books, materials, and a reasonable allowance for living during the academic year.

Eligibility for financial aid is determined using a federal formula as outlined by the U.S. Department of Education. In order to qualify for federal financial aid, you must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and enrolled for a minimum of six units each semester. Students who attend Five Branches University on an F-1 Visa (international students) are not eligible to participate in the federal financial aid program.
