Student Loans and Financial Aid

The SOE is not a Regionally Accredited institution and, therefore, does not qualify to offer Federal Student Financial Aid (FAFSA); however, County Office of Education tuition costs are considerably less than most universities, so it is important to research the best fit for each applicant. The SOE has a partnership with SchoolsFirst Credit Union and Sallie Mae. Applicants are encouraged to apply well in advance of starting the Intern program but may require a letter of acceptance from SOE in order to confirm program acceptance for final disbursement of funds.
