Financial Assistance for CNA Classes

Take the First Step We would love to hear from you! Call 770-573-0370

 

Covenant CNA School does not offers traditional forms of financial aid such as the student loans,  Pell Grant or Hope Scholarship for our CNA classes. Students initially pay a deposit, which is part of the total tuition. Then we work out a weekly payment schedule for the rest of the tuition.  There are, however, a few programs available through non-profit and government organizations for CNA training.
