Does H.I.N.T. offer any financial assistance or scholarships?Unfortunately we do not
offer scholarships or financial assistance at this time. However, we do offer
payment plans and several payment options to suit the individual student's
needs. Most students utilize low interest credit cards or personal loans from
their bank or credit union to help them pay for tuition. Keep in mind that
many financial institutions will loan money to students who will have a
marketable skill immediately after completion of courses. We will gladly
provide your bank or credit union information about the diploma program you
have selected upon written request. Anyone currently on unemployment in
Michigan may also qualify for re-education funds to help with tuition fees.

until payments are all fees are brought up to date.
Will H.I.N.T. help me find a job?

are prerequisites for some classes in most programs and not all classes are
offered at all times. So, it will be necessary to work carefully with the
class schedules to accommodate multi-diploma program combinations. Often
students are able to join a program in the middle of the year or even take
classes in two programs at the same time... when scheduling permits.
