Bridging the Gap

Financial aid and scholarships rarely cover the full cost of a college education. Families often rely on payment plans and private loans.

Due to the specialized nature of Beacon’s education, 学生和家庭也可能有资格从你所在州的职业康复中心获得其他资助,并且可以申请毕肯学院的学费作为医疗税收减免.

We encourage you to explore all the financial resources available to you. 如果您需要帮助浏览这些选项,请利记的财务援助办公室寻求帮助.

Alternative/Private Student Loans

Private loans, sometimes called alternative or supplemental loans, are available from private lenders and offer additional financial assistance. A credit check is required for private loans, and some of the loan terms and conditions may be based on your credit standing. If you are a student, please know that most lenders will require a co-signer.

Before securing a private loan, we encourage you to first explore all other sources of grants and support, including low-interest federal loans.

比肯的财政援助办公室将处理您选择的任何贷款人的私人贷款. Carefully consider your needs before you borrow. 我们建议你在考虑私人贷款之前先申请联邦拨款和贷款项目. Unlike federal loans, private lenders set the terms for the loans, which can mean they have different criteria for both loan eligibility and loan rates. We also encourage you to research all of your options. A few things to keep in mind:

  • Before accepting any private student loan, you should determine the interest rate and any fees associated with the loan.
  • 借款人选择一个以上的贷款机构来资助他们的高等教育,在离开学校时将有多个学生贷款偿还. 考虑使用同一贷款机构来满足您所有的私人教育贷款需求,这可能是有利和经济的.
  • Initially apply to multiple lenders. 根据信用报告规则,学生贷款提供特殊保护:只要你在30天内进行“购物”, there should be no impact on your credit rating and no impact on your loan terms.

Visit FinAid.org for helpful information and ways to compare alternative/private student loan options.

如果您有利记私人贷款的一般问题,请联系Beacon的金融援助办公室. Please remember, though, that we are not permitted to offer assistance in choosing a specific lender or product. Each family’s circumstances are unique, 提供给你的贷款条款和利益可能取决于你的具体信用状况.

Medical Tax Deduction for Educational Benefits

Because Beacon’s programs serve students with diagnosed learning differences, our tuition and fees may qualify as medical tax deductions.

建议家庭联系他们的会计税务顾问,以确定他们的资格和税收影响. 美国国税局出版物907和502特别提供了有关医疗和牙科费用的信息. In addition to tuition and fees, other costs such as books, notebook computers, and other education-related expenses may also be tax deductible.
