Frequently Asked Questions

When and how do I repay my student loans?

Student loan repayment does not occur until after your projected date of graduation. Please note that the “projected date of graduation” is determined based on the semester of enrollment and is the equivalent as the official graduation date for the semester for which you enrolled. If you student loan was obtained through your Financial Aid application through the school, then you will repay it through the school’s Financial Aid department. If your loan was obtained through any other private banking institution or organization outside of the school’s Financial Department, then you will need to contact that specific organization for their loan repayment instructions, policies, and guidelines.

How many times can a student apply for Financial Aid?

Each student (and program applicant) may only apply for Financial Aid once per program, per semester.

How long does it take for Financial Aid to process?

Financial Aid generally takes between 3 to 4 weeks for processing under normal circumstances. For this reason, it is recommended that applicants immediately apply (if intending to do so) in order that their award information can be avialable to them during their enrollment assistance appointment (if accepted into the program).

Do you accept Financial Aid?

Yes, but we do not accept FAFSA. We accept scholarships, grants, and payment plans–all privately funded.


When is the enrollment deposit due?

If accepted into the program, enrollment must be completed within seven (7) days–this consists of signing the enrollment documents as well as payment of the enrollment deposit. The enrollment deposit (down payment) is due within the allotted 7-day enrollment window. If enrollment is not completed within the 7 days allotted, the seat will be given to the next student on the waiting list. The enrollment deposit minimum is 20%, which is paid out-of-pocket as Financial Aid does not cover said initial deposit.

Do you accept FAFSA or other Financial Aid?

No. Erudite does not accept FAFSA or other other public/taxpayer funds (i.e. publicly-funded Financial Aid). However, we do offer private Financial Aid in the form of scholarships, grants, student loans, as well as payment plans–all from private sources (including, but not limited to: banks, churches, community organizations, etc.).


Can I move my application to a future semester?

An Application for Admission is only processed for the semester for which it was submitted. It will not be valid for future semesters.


Note: Under extenuating circumstances, you can request an exception to be made by providing appropriate official documentation (i.e. letter from employer, medical documentation, etc.) Any accommodations for future semesters will be subject to availability, as we must give priority placement to the students who have paid their application and enrollment fees to that particular semester first before we can confirm your potential accommodations, which are not guaranteed unless you receive written confirmation. The application fees are non-refundable in all instances.

Can the application fee be waived and/or refunded?

No–the application is non-refundable in all instances, as stated in writing on the Application for Admission itself.

We are unable to offer refunds even if you are not qualified to apply to the programs, as the manpower necessary to process the application by underwriting the same and verify student backgrounds incurs time and fees that cannot be recovered. For this reason, it is important to read through and understand all program information and qualification details before applying.


No–we do not offer application fee waivers for the reasons stated above.

Can I visit your corporate office to submit my application?

Our corporate office is and has been closed to students for approximately 3 years.
