FINANCIAL AID

In addition to our installment payment plans, which spread the cost of our program out into payments made over 8 months, the American Board offers financial aid to anyone that meets the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) income eligibility guidelines for reduced school meals.

If you qualify for financial aid, you will receive a discount on the cost of the American Board Plus Certification Program in the subject of your choosing. The discount will be taken right out of the cost of the program; no form of payment will be given directly to the student. If you qualify for financial aid, you are also able to pay via the installment payment plan.

See the chart below to determine if you are eligible for a discount. If your income is higher than what is listed in the chart above, you do not qualify for the reduced school meals discount. See below for other forms of financial aid you may qualify for.
