Complete your FAFSA

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a single application that allows you to apply for a variety of government grants and loans. These will keep your personal information safe and secure when you apply for financial aid online.

Financial Solutions

Our students invest valuable time and resources into their educational programs, as they strive to create a better future for themselves and their families. We’re helping students reach their educational goals and reduce student loan debt in a number of ways, including institutional grants and scholarships.

As part of our financial literacy program, we have teamed up with Solutions, a service provided by Zenith’s nonprofit parent, Educational Credit Management Corporation (ECMC). Students are encouraged to use Solutions as a resource as often as needed – these services are at no additional cost and include:

  • Answers to your federal student loan questions
  • Information on your loan servicer
  • Clear explanations of all your federal student loan repayment options
  • Information on how to reduce or postpone your monthly payment

Contact Solutions by phone at 1-877-331-3262 or visit its website to email or web chat with a Solutions counselor.

Federal Subsidized Stafford Loans

Federal Subsidized Stafford Loans are awarded on the basis of financial need. A student will not be charged any interest before beginning repayment or during an authorized postponement. The federal government subsidizes the interest during this period. This is a low-interest loan that is granted to the student by a lender such as a bank, credit union, or savings and loan association.
