FSTM In-House Payment Plan
Even better, how about a 0% interest monthly payment plan? Sponsored by FSTM, you can pay the school directly and avoid paying interest. At the time of registration, 1/2 of the semester’s tuition is due to start class. The remaining balance is split into 3 monthly payments. All tuition for each semester is due on the set due date, and all fees for said semester must be paid by the last day of school during that term. Email info@midwiferyschool.org for more information about private scholarships.

Sallie Mae Alternative Loans for Career Schools
These are private (bank) loans, and eligibility is based on your credit score and financial information. Private loans are not associated with your FAFSA and are regulated differently by the government, as they are not the same as government student loans. The amount of a private loan is based on the “Cost of Attendance” less any other financial aid you already have. "Cost of Attendance” is calculated by the financial aid office. You should only consider these loans if you are running out of eligibility for federal loans and cannot make ends meet otherwise. Private loans should only be considered after all other options are exhausted.
