Connecticut School of Broadcasting Concerns Over Tuition Prompt Much Improved Loan Program


Throughout its 53-year history, the schools have never accepted financial aid. Federally accredited Title IV college and universities generally allow students to pay back loans that are backed by the government, but CSB offers a multi-month certificate program that doesn’t fit a more traditional plan.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Farmington, CT - How to pay for school has long been a concern for prospective students hoping to enroll at one of the Connecticut School of Broadcasting (CSB)'s eleven campuses along the east coast. Throughout its 53-year history, the schools have never accepted financial aid. Federally accredited Title IV college and universities generally allow students to pay back loans that are backed by the government, but CSB offers a multi-month certificate program that doesn’t fit a more traditional plan.

“That’s prompted many potentially strong students to give up on the entire idea of getting a hands on education in broadcast media and that’s just wrong” says John Casson, the company’s Corporate Controller.

Beginning in late 2017 that will change.

A new program is being rolled out that will allow a limited number of students to finance much of their tuition with monthly payments between two and six hundred dollars, depending on the down payment - which can range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. The school also is working to make sure students have no tuition debt within two years of graduation. Traditional colleges often have loan programs that extend ten years.

Administrators are still finalizing the details, but promise the interest rate will be modest and the payment plans will be affordable for most applicants. “There’s no reason to tell a person who’s willing and eager to learn and succeed that the only reason for denial is the lack of funding” Casson continued. “Every student who is accepted and completes the program successfully will graduate with a job in the industry or the ability to continue to use our resources until they are on the career path they set out to accomplish when they enrolled” he says. “Therefore, passion, not money, should be the key factor for acceptance”.

School officials say credit ratings have no impact on these loans and all students will be charged the same modest interest rate. Students interested in learning more should contact their local campus director.
