Financial Aid at Eastern International College
The Financial Aid Office at Eastern International College works to assist students in finding feasible means for financing their education. Representatives from the Financial Aid Office begin meeting with students during the enrollment process, providing guidance for the student’s application process for aid. As students complete entry requirements for their appropriate program, they meet with the Financial Aid Office (FAO) for one-on-one assistance.
During the initial meeting, a Financial Aid Advisor (FAA) meets with the student to discuss financing options as offered at Eastern International College. Throughout the application process, the student is reminded of the difference between repayable and gift aid.
The Financial Aid Office maintains an open-door policy and is available for student assistance during the enrollment process and throughout their time at EIC. A FAA meets with each student at each new semester registration for an individualized discussion about present and future financing. This policy is maintained throughout the student’s academic career with the College and after graduation.
