The following forms of financial aid are available to those who qualify:
Pell Grant – This federal grant is available for approved adult education programs which are 600 hours in length or longer. This grant does not need to be repaid unless a student withdraws from a program.
*Note – Students who are currently in default on a federal student loan are not eligible for a Title IV aid (Pell Grant, Stafford Loans) until their account is in good standing.
Workforce Investment Act Funding (WIA) – Each county has it’s own WIA training funds. Students should start the application process EARLY as the WIA funding process takes time. To find out more about WIA, contact your county’s Department of Job & Family Services:
Ashland County (419) 282-5000
Crawford County (419) 562-8066
Huron County (800) 668-5175
Morrow County (419) 946-8480
Richland County (419) 774-5300
***It is best to visit your local office in person to begin the process. Ask if you can start on the intake requirements (resume, job search, workshops, etc.) even if there is no funding currently available and if you can be considered for future sections/modules of your training program. You will need to be persistent in following up with the office in order to secure funding. (FAFSA REQUIRED).
Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) – A state grant available for a company closing/downsizing, if employees were approved for TRA. An application must be submitted for approval about two months before training begins. (FASFA REQUIRED)
VA Veterans' Training Benefits – Veterans may use their VA benefits (Motgomery GI Bill, etc.), if approved, to attend programs at Madison Adult Career Center.
BUREAU OF VOCATIONAL REHABILITION (BVR) – If you have a documented disability and are pursuing eligible training funding may be possible. Phone: 419-747-3000. (FASFA REQUIRED)
Student Payment Plan – For programs 375 hours or longer. Payment must be made in full by program completion. Students are required to sign a payment contract and make the first payment before class begins. Payments are interest-free, but late fees are charged for delinquent payments. Payments more than 30 days delinquent will be forwarded to our collection agency and the student dismissed.
Stafford Student Loans – Can be applied for tuition and fees for approved programs 375 hours or longer. Students must complete a Master Promissory Note (MPN) and entrance/exit counseling. Student loans need to be repaid after the student graduates/withdraws from a program. (FASFA REQUIRED)
Delinquent Payment Policy – Delinquent payments are charged a late fee. Once payment is over 30 days delinquent, a letter will be sent notifying the student of the date the account will be sent to collections. If payment is not received by collection deadline, the account will be submitted to collections. The student will be dismissed and billed any additional charges that may occur due to financial aid that could not be collected by dismissal date.
