Kendall College Admissions and Financial Aid
The school weighs an applicant's high school record, standardized test scores (ACT or SAT), entrance interview, and application essay in its admission decision. Recommendation letters are also considered. Students who do not speak English as their primary language need to submit their scores from the TOEFL.
As with all colleges, the ability to pay for tuition is fundamental to completing the program. Students with demonstrable need may be eligible to receive federal funding in the form of grants and loans. Additional financial resources may be available from state sources, private parties and Kendall College itself. A financial planner from the college can help students through the complexities of the process.
Many instructors hold advanced degrees relevant to their professions from highly respected colleges and universities, plus have field knowledge acquired from successful careers.
