American Sentinel offers many alternatives to help you pay for your education. Our admissions advisors can help you choose the best options.
You can finance some or all of your tuition costs, interest free, through our in-house payment plan. See examples of our payment plans >>
Federal Student Financial Aid

Scholarships, Grants and Discounts
Scholarships and Grants are forms of education funding that can be used for tuition, fees, and other education expenses. They do not need to be repaid; and therefore, are an ideal means of paying for school. Eligibility may be based on degree program, field of study, financial need, or a combination of factors.
