Types of Assistance

Noorda-COM students who need financial assistance to pay their tuition and fees and/or funds to assist with their living expenses, will be able to apply for private educational student loans, set-up a payment plan to pay tuition and fees each semester, apply for scholarships, and/or pay cash.


Private Student Loans

Students can seek private student loans from a variety of banks.  Students will need to do their due diligence in finding the best student loan product to meet their needs.  ELMSelect is a tool available to students to compare loans.  This tool provides a neutral lender and product comparison tool you can utilize when making the decision to borrow.  ELMSelect is powered by ELM Resources, a not-for-profit mutual benefit organization.




Students are encouraged to search for scholarships using available scholarship search tools, as well as, reviewing various organization websites to identify possible opportunities. The Noorda-COM Office of Financial Aid will post scholarship opportunities that may be of interest to our students.
