Financial Aid

In an effort to keep cost to a minimum and due to the size of the program UPMC Chautauqua School of Radiology DOES NOT PARTICIPATE IN ANY FEDERAL OR STATE STUDENT LOAN / GRANT PROGRAMS.

In place of our non-participation in state and federal student loan / grant programs the Fiscal Department has instituted a payment plan / loan program to lessen the burden on the student. Payments are set up on a ten (10) month amortization schedule for each program year. The interest on the payment plan / loan program is the prime rate plus two percent (2%) according to the most recent Wall Street Journal report. Payments are due the first of each month.

Any student, who is delinquent in the loan payments at the end of a semester, will not be permitted to continue in the program. Any student owing the hospital money at the end of the training period will not be eligible for graduation until the debt is paid.
