Most people who learn about us think: “Too good to be true.” We know it seems that way, but it’s true. Our services are provided at no cost to you, using funds we raise from foundations, corporations, government and generous individuals.

The costs you can prepare for include transportation or childcare—expenses that take care of you so you can focus on your studies.

Who is CompTIA?

Does Per Scholas provide personal expense financing?

We know life continues while you’re enrolled at Per Scholas. That’s why we’re teaming up with Ascent, a trusted partner of Per Scholas, to provide full-time IT Support learners at select campuses to apply for a Zero Percent Loan.

Per Scholas IT Support learners across various campuses – have the opportunity to apply for a Zero Percent Loan from Ascent in the amount of $3,000. Onboarding learners can apply 60 days from the start date through to the end of the 2nd week of the course.

Once approved, learners will receive three $1,000 cash disbursements – through Steady, an easy-to-use application that will be the payment platform.

Learners will not be charged any interest, late fees, or origination fees on their loan, ever. Repayment does not begin until at least 3 months after graduation and only when learners land a job earning the equivalent of at least $40,000 a year. Once repayment begins, monthly payments are low and fixed – $83.33 for 36 months.

Please note: Admission to Per Scholas is not contingent on applying for a Zero Percent Loan from Ascent.
