All tuition and fees are due at the beginning of full-time training programs. However, all students participating in the Federal Financial Aid programs are allowed to attend classes while their aid is being finalized. Any money due to A-Tech will be credited to their account directly from the Federal Financial Aid programs before any monies are disbursed to the student. To register, all students must pay a $50 registration fee. All part-time courses must be paid before course start date. If course fees are employer-paid, a company authorization or notification must be submitted. If the student leaves their employment and the employer discontinues tuition payment, the student is responsible for the payment of any remaining tuition. Full-time students must have an approved financial aid package prior to attendance.
