Is financial aid available?

Financial Aid. TechLEAP is a noncredit program. Therefore, financial aid (through state and federal grants or loans) is not generally available for TechLEAP.

Tuition Installment Plan. Students can take advantage of Montgomery College's Tuition Installment Program. This program allows students to pay their tuition over time. The tuition is paid in several installments instead of all at once.

Student Loans. Students also may investigate bank loans (Crestar eMax education loan is affiliated with our college). There are also programs that provide loans specifically for information technology students. Finally, students should consider that the internships in the latter two months of the program will be paid and will offset a portion of their costs. Payment for internships is approximately $10/hr.

Are textbooks and materials included in the price?

Textbooks are not included in the table of prices listed above. Students also supply their own storage disks, notebooks, pens, pencils, and similar student supplies. Supplemental materials provided by the instructors are included in the prices above. Textbooks and student-supplied materials will be available at the College bookstore or from commercial sources.
