Commercial Diving Technologies Institute is eligible to participate in Title IV Federal Financial Aid Programs. Our Financial Aid office can help you identify, understand and qualify for a variety of financing options if necessary. Our office is equipped with the knowledge to help with federal financing programs, as well as grants, scholarships, MY CAA, Post GI Bill, and VA approved training.


Federal Financial Aid Programs

The Federal Financial Aid Programs are for students “who qualify” after filling out the application information. These programs are identified as both grants, who do not need to be repaid, and loans, which must be repaid after six months from your last date of enrollment.


Federal Pell Grant and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

Do not have to be repaid as long as the student meets “specified” requirements.

William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program

Federal loans are also available to help finance your education at a reduced interest rate or with deferred payments. These loans are borrowed funds that must be repaid.

How do we help?

Our financial aid team will work with you to see what resources are available to you so that you may complete your education at our school. Each enrolling student will meet with the Financial Aid Director to discuss student need, budgets, and qualifications for Federal Student Aid.

*You must still meet with the Enrollment Specialist and complete an interview to be considered for enrollment.*

We have provided a “net price calculator” which is a tool that you may use to estimate your “net price” to attend our school. Net price is the difference between the full cost to attend, minus any grants and scholarships for which you may be eligible. This cost includes direct charges (tuition and fees, room and board if any) and indirect costs (books and supplies, transportation, and personal expenses). Direct charges are set by the school and may change without notice.

Code of Ethics

Commercial Diving Technologies Institute expects the highest level of integrity and professionalism in regards to its officers and employees dealing with Title IV financial aid. Our Code of Conduct prohibits conflicts of interest on the part of both the Institute and individual employees regarding Title IV loans.

Invest in your future with an ISA.

An Income Share Agreement (ISA) is a flexible alternative to a student loan. You will only make
payments when you have a job. Rather than borrowing money, you commit to pay a fixed
percentage of your future income for a set period of time. Payments will adjust with your
income and will always be affordable. Learn more and apply below. Learn more here
