Financial Aid Guarantee Program Disclaimer & Information

Disclaimer: Career College of the Pacific is committed to ensuring that all students have the opportunity to pursue their educational goals through our Financial Aid Guarantee program. Qualification for financial aid is subject to approval through Climb Credit. All students will qualify for financial assistance; however, the specific terms of the aid, including down payment amounts and payment schedules, are determined by Climb Credit based on individual creditworthiness. Students may be offered different financial aid packages, which could include either no initial down payment with deferred payments post-graduation or a plan requiring 10% down with monthly payments spread over 24 months commencing 30 days after program start date. Career College of the Pacific does not have any influence over Climb Credit’s decision-making process regarding the assignment of financial aid terms. Please refer to Climb Credit’s policies and terms for full details.

Financial Aid Program Guarantee

At Career College of the Pacific, we are committed to making education accessible. We’re proud to partner with Climb Credit to offer two distinct financial aid programs to our students:

Deferred Payment Plan: Eligible students may qualify for a program that requires no down payment with payments deferred until after graduation. Eligibility for this program is based on the applicant’s creditworthiness as determined by Climb Credit.

Immediate Repayment Plan: Students who do not qualify for the deferred payment plan may be eligible for an immediate repayment plan that includes a 10% down payment with monthly installments beginning 30 days after the start of classes.

All students are guaranteed to qualify for one of these two financial aid programs, but the specific terms, including down payment and payment schedule, are based on the comprehensive credit assessment carried out by Climb Credit. The 10% down payment is the minimum required to commence any of our programs, and this down payment amount is part of the total program cost.

Please note that Climb Credit is an independent entity, and while Career College of the Pacific facilitates the financing process, the final determination of financing terms and eligibility lies solely with Climb Credit. We encourage all prospective students to review the terms and conditions provided by Climb Credit thoroughly to understand the obligations and commitments associated with the financing offered.

For more information, please contact our Financial Aid Office or visit Climb Credit’s website to learn more about your options and the application process.
