Without Spending More Than You Need To!
Most students are concerned about how they are going to finance their education. At NetSoft, an Admissions Counsellor provides each student with individualized support. One of our Admissions Counsellors can help you understand your financial needs and show you how to access the resources you need to secure your education funding.
Step 1: Understand Program Costs and Discuss Possible Payment Options
The first step of the process is determining the cost of your program. This will include tuition fees, books, educational fees, interest and any other costs. At this stage, educational fees are only an estimate, but they should provide you with a good idea of your total costs.
From there, your Admissions Counsellor will walk you through your payment options. These can include a lump-sum payment, instalment payments, public grants and public or private loans.
During your meeting with the Admissions Counsellor, you will be able to ask any questions you have about your educational costs and funding options. Our goal is for you to understand the projected costs, financing options, and course-related policies and procedures thoroughly.
Step 2: Create an Educational Financing Plan with 11 Different Options Available for You to Make It Happen
In the second step of the process, our Admissions Counsellor will work with you to create a plan to finance your education. To do this, the Admissions Counsellor will introduce you to 11 financing options. The Admissions Counsellor will help you choose the three that best meet your needs and help you work toward securing one of these sources of financing.
At this point, the financing process may take some time. The wait for financing can take a few days, or even a few months. The processing time depends on how long it takes to submit applications, make appointments and follow the process of a given financial agency. At NetSoft, we encourage our students to be patient and trust that we will walk you through the financing process and do everything we can to help you get the financing you need to launch your new career.
Step 3: Prepare to Start Your New Career with NetSoft
With a plan in place for financing, you can submit your NetSoft registration forms and prepare to start your IT education. Your Admissions Counsellor will continue to work with you to make sure NetSoft has all of the information needed to finalize the registration process.
