Financing college can be a daunting task, especially if you don’t have the necessary tools and
information. Here at Texas Healthtech, we offer federal student aid for Medical Assistant and Office
Administrative Assistant through FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). FAFSA offers federal
aid to qualified students in two forms: Pell grants (which you do not have to pay back), subsidized and
unsubsidized loans. You have the option to choose to receive the Pell grant alone, or with loans—it is
your choice! Subsidized loans are offered through FAFSA and do not accrue interest, while unsubsidized
loans require interest to be accrued. If you choose to take out loans through FAFSA, you will be expected
to start repayment after graduation. Either way you choose to go, we here at Texas Healthtech Institute
would be happy to assist you in the sometimes-confusing process of navigating FAFSA.
For our Phlebotomy Technician and Medical Billing and Coding courses, we offer cash pay and loans
through Meritize. FAFSA is not available for these two programs, as they do not fulfill the full-time status
requirements.
Another option for financing college for any program is to use a private institution to finance your
education. Many credit unions, banks, and entities like Sallie Mae, College Ave, and others offer student
aid for those who qualify.
Regardless of the path you choose to go down, see it as an investment in your future—which is bright! If
you have and questions, please feel free to contact us at: (409) 866-0555, admin@texashealthtech.com

aid!
