Financial Options

Financial Resources and Options to pay for your care4you2, LLC STNA Class

As we learn of different options that exist for program fee assistance, we will add that information to this page.

1. Pay On Your Own:  You can register and pay for your classes with cash, a debit or credit card (VISA, Master card or Discover) or a money order.  We do NOT accept personal checks.  If you register online, you must use a PAYPAL account to pay in full for your classes.  If you register over the phone you must do so with a debit or credit card payment in full.  If you pay in person, you can use any of the payment methods (except PAYPAL) listed above.

2. Use the NEW PAYPAL 6 months financing option!  Submit your online payment information and request the 6 month option to pay.  The applicant’s credit history is checked and, if approved the applicant knows within seconds of the approval.  Payment is immediate to care4you2 and the student then makes payments over 6 months to the finance company who approved him/her.

3.  Apply for a student credit card.  We have the name and telephone number of an organization that offers College Credit Cards with a limit of $300-$2500.  They will ask for our name, address, phone number, date of birth, if you are working-name of company and your work telephone number, your income, the name of the school you are attending (care4you2), and your expected graduation date.  They will assign you an ID and try to have an approval/denial within 2 hours to 7 days.  If approved it will take 7-10 business days to receive the credit card.  Please call or visit us for details.

4. Loan: You may apply at your financial institution for a loan.  If you are approved for a loan, you WILL have to re-pay the financial institution the money you borrowed PLUS interest.  Your financial institution will give you details and an application if you qualify to apply for a loan.  Some credit unions may offer small loans to cover the cost of the program, uniform and state test if you are a member or perhaps of you are an immediate family member of a member of the credit union.

5. Employment/Training Services Funded Programs:  Many programs exist that assist qualified applicants with funding for programs such as STNA classes.  Below you will find some information about existing programs and links you may click on for additional information. Check with ANY case manager with whom you work to inquire as to whether training funds are available (i.e. LMHA, ODJFS, etc.)
