How To Fund Your Education At WTI

Washington Technical Institute is committed to providing quality education at an affordable price. Our goal is to have our students graduate with little to no debt. Figuring out how to fund your education is one of the most stressful parts of going to school, so we decided to compile all of the options here to help you decide which path is best for you. 

Interest-free payments directly to the school

All of WTI’s programs come with the option of either paying all of your tuition up front or utilizing our interest-free payment plans. The plans are tailored to the program length and a student will set their automatic payments up at the time of enrollment. There is no interest and students will graduate with no debt if all payments are made. 

Loan options to consider

Students can explore the various loan options to help cover the entirety of their tuition up front. WTI does not participate in federal Title IV financial aid (Direct loans, SEOG, or Pell Grant), but students can explore options with private lenders for their student loan needs. WTI’s preferred partner for loans is Climb Credit. You can find out about their loan opportunities here:

In addition, there are other loan providers to explore. SoFi, Best Egg, and Lending Tree work with all types of credit profiles and could be good options. Please note, loans may require a co-signer depending on credit worthiness. 

Students would be responsible for securing the loan and using it to pay for their tuition. 

Employer tuition reimbursement

Many employers offer tuition reimbursement to their employees as a benefit. Sadly, too many people do not know this or do not use it. Check with your employer. We are happy to work with you and your employer to identify how your company’s tuition reimbursement can help fund your education.

Outside scholarships and grants

Did you know that there are sites you can go to that can help you find scholarships? According to Forbes, $100 million in scholarships go unclaimed each year…mostly due to a lack of applicants. Don’t miss out. Here are a couple places to start your scholarship journey:
