Tuition Financing Through TFC Credit Corporation
Lowers Student Payments
January 4, 2008
Annapolis, MD: The Westlawn
Institute of Marine Technology is pleased to announce that it has arranged to
provide financial aid to students enrolled in the Westlawn program through TFC
Credit Corporation (www.tfccredit.com).
The financial-aid package offers students two options for tuition financing.
With interest rates from 3% to 9%, students now have the flexibility to choose
the payment plan that best meets their needs. U.S. students can now enroll
for as little as $395, with monthly payments as low as $141.60. Students
continuing on from Module 1 to further modules can continue to use TFC
financing, rolling over any balance due as they progress in their study. Pricing
for international students is slightly higher.
Westlawn director Dave
Gerr stated, “Westlawn hasn’t offered financial aid of this type since the
1970s, and it is something we’ve been wanting to offer to our students. Our
goal is to keep Westlawn education as affordable as possible. Using TFC tuition
financing, we are able to reduce our students’ payments to levels that were
last offered in 1980s.”
TFC Credit Corporation has
been financing student tuition for over 35 years. In that time, TFC has
financed over 250,000 students at over 1,500 schools. With full-service
operation centers in both New York and San Francisco, TFC Credit Corporation is a
leader in the education-financing field.
