Costs and Financial Aid

Costs for the IGNITE Program will align with traditional undergraduate costs.

We are in the process of completing the Comprehensive Transition Postsecondary (CTP) Program application. Once approved, IGNITE students may be eligible for some types of federal financial aid based on financial need.

We recommend everyone completes the FAFSA.

Visit Think College for more information on funding sources.
