Self Pay students Are
Entitled to reimbursement!

Per federal and state laws, if a student pays for the class themselves, they are entitled to reimbursement from a CMS certified facility once they begin working.

Sponsorships are where an organization will hire you and then pay for your CNA training. This is a great option for many students as they will have a job waiting for them when they complete class. 

With a scholarship, students are able to obtain funds to help them pay for classes from a variety of sources. Some scholarships may only include partial payments, and some may pay the entire amount of the program.

Sponsorship Options

Students interested in sponsorships, must reach out 
directly to the sponsoring agency to apply for
a sponsorship.
