Paying for Educational Costs
Berk Trade and Business School has no hidden fees. Education costs cover all expenses of the program including tuition, registration, student ID, books, tools, tool-bags, materials, etc. Financial obligation may be met through a combination of Federal grants, scholarships from outside sources, student loans and payment plans.
Students who have a financial shortfall after all financial aid alternatives have been exhausted are able to make either a lump sum payment or participate in the school’s convenient, interest-free, monthly payment plan. Additional information can be obtained from the Bursar. Individuals who qualify for employer-sponsored tuition reimbursement plans must provide documentation regarding the specifics of the employer’s plan prior to registration. The School may be able to reduce the out-of-pocket cost to the student based on the provisions of the plan.
