Internal Financing Option
A great option for students who are able to pay for their tuition without applying for a Loan. It's an in house plan in which IBS carries the tuition over the course of instruction. Students pay a flat $1,675 for the first month of class. Beyond this, students must maintain a monthly fee, of a minimum of $500 while attending classes and the balance of any unpaid amounts shall be due by the expected graduation date. Financial aid recipients understand that monies received on their behalf are applied first to tuition costs.
There are some financial resources for ethnic Hawaiians. Alu Like has several scholarship possibilities and OHA has a loan program for up to $19,999.00. Please feel free to contact us should you wish to obtain further information on these resources.
Federal Financial Aid Programs
IBS also participates in federal financial aid programs for eligible students. Most of these programs are based on a student’s financial need as determined by the federal government. Financial Need is the difference between the cost of attendance (COA) at a school and your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), in other words, how much you or your family can be expected to contribute toward your educational expenses. Students seeking
financial aid assistance must complete the FAFSA, which is available online at http://www. fafsa.ed.gov/.
Veterans Administration (VA) - Post-9/11 GI Bill®
If you have at least 90 days of aggregate active duty service after Sept. 10, 2001, and are still on active duty, or if you are an honorably discharged Veteran or were discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days, you may be eligible for this VA-administered program. If you have eligibility for the Post-9/11 GI Bill® and any other GI Bill® program you must make an irrevocable election of the Post-9/11 GI Bill® before you can receive any benefits.
If you are the spouse or child of a service member, you may be eligible for transfer of the service member’s Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefits to you.
The transferability option under the Post-9/11 GI Bill® allows Service Members to transfer all or some unused benefits to their spouse or dependent children. The request to transfer unused GI Bill® benefits to eligible dependents must be completed while serving as an active member of the Armed Forces. The Department of Defense (DoD) determines whether or not you can transfer benefits to your family.
‘‘GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government Web site at http://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill."
