CELA offers financial assistance for candidates who are enrolled in the ICAF, ICAT, ICAE, and EWF-C programs to help meet their education, training, and certification goals. We do not accept federal financial student aid at this time. All CELA financial assistance is in the form of tuition remission.
There are several scholarships available each academic year for new and returning students enrolled in the ICAF, ICAT, or ICAE certification program. All CELA scholarships are in the form of tuition remission and cover partial to full tuition costs for CELA ICAF, ICAT, and ICAE certification programs. CELA scholarships are need-based and applications for financial aid are evaluated on an individual basis.
Candidates can apply using the Online Financial Aid Application and following the instructions.
Financial aid determinations are made after considering all of a candidate’s admission information including but not limited to the personal statement, resume, work history and experience, the financial aid application, and the candidate’s demonstrated financial need.
Individualized Payment Plans
Individualized payment plans are an option for all students who have been accepted into the ICAF, ICAT, and ICAE Certification Programs, the Alternative & Holistic Healthcare Certificate Program, and CELACare Eco-Health Certificate Programs. Please contact Financial Aid directly using the message box below to discuss payment options. Individualized payment plans are arranged based on each student’s needs.
Emergency Financial Assistance
CELA offers student emergency assistance. We understand that sometimes a small amount of financial assistance can be the difference between attaining your goals and falling short. It is our desire to support our students when unexpected events, expenses, or financial hardship impact finishing a course or completing a session. CELA offers one-time only emergency assistance for eligible candidates who apply.
CELA emergency financial assistance is in the form of tuition remission and can be applied toward tuition costs for CELA online courses, internship/practicum supervision costs for supervision provided by CELA supervisors (for students enrolled in Facilitation Skills,) and the CELA graduation fee. Student emergency assistance requests are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
CELA emergency financial aid requests can be submitted using the Online Financial Aid Application. Please use the message box below to request an emergency financial assistance application to be emailed to you.
