April 27, 2012 (Fremont, CA) – Unitek College’s Sacramento campus has received Department of Education (DOE) approval to offer Federal Student Aid to students for all existing programs. This approval opens the door for more students to take advantage of training with fewer financial barriers that previously had left numerous prospective students unable to afford training.
Federal Student Aid loans and grants ensure accessibility, affordability and accountability in higher education. The financial aid options at Unitek College include:
- Pell Grant
- Federal Subsidized Loans
- Federal Unsubsidized Loans
- Parent Plus Loan
Unitek College’s DOE approval for Title IV Student Financial Aid funding for Sacramento and the Bay Area underscores that it has adhered to and met with stringent criteria that includes proof of financial responsibility, quality of curriculum, accreditation, and state authorization. To apply and qualify for Federal Student Aid funding, Unitek College went through a rigorous application process to meet and surpass all requirements and standards set by the DOE.
Expressing great enthusiasm and pride, Navraj Bawa, COO, Unitek College said, “One of our guiding principles is to provide an opportunity for all students to earn the skills and expertise to scale great heights in their nursing and allied healthcare careers. Obtaining Federal Financial Aid approval for our Sacramento and Bay Area campuses is a momentous occasion for us and the students who will be able to achieve and surpass their dreams of a better future through education.”
