Other Information Relating to Scholarships & Financial Aid

International TEFL Academy is not a receiving institution of financial aid from the GI Bill or FAFSA.  ITA does accept scholarship funds from private foundations.   It is common for students to obtain funding from their local organizations and state retraining organizations.  Tuition is typically sent directly to ITA after appropriate paperwork is filled out by the student and approved by International TEFL Academy.  We are more than willing to assist in filling out any of your paperwork or provide verification of accreditation. If there is an organization that is going to sponsor your enrollment (charity, foundation, grant, etc), please call 773-634-9900 and speak with an admission advisor.
