The CSCA does not offer financial aid. However, The CSCA has a loan source that provides low interest loans to qualified students. Our source is a financially secure public company that provides students and parents with a number of affordable options to help defray the costs of education.
To be eligible for a loan:
- You must have a good credit rating.
- Generally, your monthly debt payments should not be more than 40% of your gross monthly income.
- You must have a U.S. social security number.
- You or a co-applicant must be a U.S. citizen or eligible permanent resident.
If you are interested in either of these options you can contact our Loan Office and set up an appointment to do an on-line application. Appointments can be made by calling 617-354-2020 ext. 126 or sending an email to email@example.com
The Cambridge School of Culinary Arts is not a Title IV school, and thereby our students do not qualify for federal aid. We are happy to assist prospective students in obtaining a loan from a private lender, as well as providing information about all available scholarship opportunities that exist for culinary students.
