The Cape Girardeau CTC accepts and assists students with the following types of financial aid:
Direct Federal Loans
Access MO Grant
Missouri A+ Scholarship
In order for a student to receive financial aid, both the student AND the program in which they plan to enroll have to meet specific qualification.
Qualifying CTC programs include:
Physical Therapist Assistant
1. Complete your 2021-2022 FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov If you do not have an FSA ID, the FAFSA site will offer a link to the FSA ID site. You must have an FSA ID to submit your FAFSA.
2. Enter the Cape CTC school code (005532) to ensure we receive your results
3. Use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to import your 2019 tax information from the IRS. You will be given this option as you work through the FAFSA. If you are unable to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, you can input the information from your 2019 tax return to your FAFSA.
Complete the FAFSA by April 1, 2021 – no other application is required. Students must be enrolled full time to qualify.
Registration constitutes a financial contract between students and the school. Students are ultimately responsible for payment of all fees owed to the school (tuition, books, fees, & other related expenses) including instances where anticipated financial aid becomes unavailable. If a balance is due to the school, the school has the right to cancel students’ registration, to withhold grades, transcripts, or certificates, and to refuse admittance to final exams/clinicals.
For Long-term programs (those eligible for financial aid), during the first 60% of a payment period, tuition due will be prorated based upon the days completed. After 60% of the payment period has elapsed, no tuition will be deducted. Students will always be responsible for the payment for textbooks and fees that have been used or cannot be returned. If a student elects to drop a course, the student must notify the CTC.
Students who have not visited the school facility prior to enrollment have the opportunity to withdraw without penalty within three days following either attendance at a regularly scheduled orientation or following a tour of the facilities and inspection of the equipment.
Refunds to students will be issued with or without the request of the student.
For short-term programs (those not eligible for financial aid), if a student elects to drop a course, the student must complete the designated form available at the CTC office.
If the request is made prior to the second class meeting, a full refund minus any expense to the CTC (background check fee, course supplies) will be issued. After the second meeting, a refund will not be issued.
If CTC cancels a class, the student's deposit will be refunded in full.
