Making Education Affordable

At the Vet Tech Institute at Hickey College, we understand the fear that you won’t be able to afford your veterinary technician education.  To help, we offer at no additional cost individualized assistance in developing a financial plan that works for you.  Our experience is that almost everyone who wants to attend the Vet Tech Institute can afford it. 

At the Vet Tech Institute at Hickey College, you and your family will work individually with a representative to develop a personalized financial plan. We help you create a plan that works for you and that covers all of your direct costs of education. Tuition, books, fees, and housing, if necessary, are all part of the financial plan. 

There are several types of financial aid programs available for those who qualify:

  • Federal Pell Grants 
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants 
  • Federal Direct Subsidized Stafford Loans 
  • Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loans 
  • Federal Direct PLUS Loans (Parent Loans)
  • Alternative and Personal Loans
  • Installment Payment Plans
  • Scholarships 

In addition, Hickey College is approved for the training of veterans. Various governmental agencies also have sponsored students at Hickey college.

Each type of financial aid program has its own set of criteria and rules. Awards can vary based on each person’s and each family’s situation.  Some programs require applying by a deadline.

Your representative can guide you through the process of applying for financial aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and can work with you to help optimize your financial aid plan.

As long as you stay enrolled full-time at the Vet Tech Institute at Hickey College, tuition rates will be frozen for you and will never go up from year to year.
