Choosing a new career and advancing your education is an exciting time for you. You’ve decided to invest in yourself and get the education you need to get into a career that will be secure and rewarding; now-how are you going to fund this investment? Sumner College understands that each student’s financial situation is unique. Our financial aid department can provide you with valuable financial aid information and show you how to go about applying for financial aid. If you’re interested in learning more about Oregon financial aid options, we can help you. If you have not already done so, it is important for you to fill out the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and schedule a time to meet with a Financial Aid Representative prior to enrollment. During your appointment, we can help you find and apply for financial aid in Oregon. We can also help you find out what you are qualified for and what kind of loans will be needed. Many of the specific eligibility requirements to gain and retain Federal Aid eligibility can be found in the publications provided by the U.S. Department of Education, and on their websites at: https://studentaid.ed.gov/eligibility
Additionally, the College makes many of these booklets, brochures, pamphlets, applications and other consumer information available at the Campus Financial Aid Offices.
If you are not sure how to fill out the FAFSA, the Financial Aid department at Sumner College will assist you with the application. Complete your Electronic Master Promissory Note and entrance counseling for student loans at https://studentloans.gov/myDirectLoan/index.action

The College Affordability and Transparency Center (College Scorecard Center) provides resources to help you learn more about the affordability of colleges in Oregon.
At Sumner College, it’s important that you feel comfortable and well-informed. We respect our potential students and want you to have a clear picture of what it will realistically cost to attend school and train for a rewarding new career.
The Net Price Calculator is designed to help you get a meaningful estimate of total, out-of-pocket costs, based on your particular financial circumstances and anticipated aid.
How It Works
The calculator first factors cost of attendance including tuition and fees, room and board, books/supplies, transportation and personal expenses. Using Financial Data you enter, the calculator then estimates the amount that you/your family would be expected to contribute to pay school expenses. Finally, the calculator evaluates your eligibility for Financial Aid (need-based) by matching your financial and personal characteristics to the criteria used to determine financial aid awards.
To complete the calculator you will need to answer some basic questions about you/your family’s financial situation. It may be helpful to have recent tax forms and pay stubs/income statements on hand before you begin.

Please Note: Results from this tool are only an estimate of financial aid eligibility. The accuracy of estimated awards is based on information provided and on the assumption that the student will complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Future costs and financial aid estimates are subject to change. Final eligibility for federal and state financial aid is determined by the U.S. Department of Education. Actual financial aid awards, if approved, may differ from this estimated figure.
