A variety of loan products exist and students are encouraged to investigate options thoroughly. Pennsylvania Highlands Community College does not recommend lenders and does not maintain a preferred lender list. Additional and related information regarding private student loans as well as a comparison chart may be found at http://www.finaid.org/loans/privatestudentloans.phtml.

PAYMENT PLAN

Pennsylvania Highlands is pleased to offer a Payment Plan as an option to assist students and their families in reaching their educational goals.

The Pennsylvania Highlands Community College Payment Plan is the interest-free, debt-free way to spread tuition payments over a number of months. The Payment Plan is not a loan, so there are no interest payments, just a low enrollment fee. The Payment Plan allows you to break down your education expenses into easy-to-manage installments rather than one lump-sum payment. It’s simple and convenient. A down payment is due at registration, along with the $25 enrollment fee.

Early enrollment is strongly encouraged to take full advantage of our Payment Plan. The length and due dates of each plan varies depending on the program you enroll in. The following Career Training programs are eligible for the Payment Plan: • EKG Technician (4-month payment plan) • Personal Trainer Certification (3-month payment plan) • Pharmacy Technician (4-month payment plan) • Phlebotomy (5-month payment plan) • Veterinary Assistant (3-month payment plan) • Online career training programs are also eligible for payment plans
