Tax Reform Act of 1997

Under this act, there are two programs for which you and/or your family may receive significant tax credits: The Hope Scholarship Credit and the Lifelong Learning Credit. Of course, there are guidelines that have to be followed, but the process for both programs is fairly straightforward and ECPI University’s Financial Aid Advisors are always available to help make it as simple as possible. In fact, the programs require no application whatsoever. A student guide is available from the Financial Aid Department which provides general information regarding eligibility, application processes and Federal financial assistance programs.

ECPI University is a Yellow Ribbon Participating School

The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program) is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows institutions of higher learning (degree granting institutions) in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the Veterans Administration to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate. The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses and the Veterans Administration will match the same amount as the institution.
