The philosophy of student aid is to provide access and choice to students who, without such assistance, would not be able to attend an institution of higher learning. The overall focus and priority of services of the Office of Financial Aid is the student. The priority in this office is to provide our students and their families with exemplary services and to remove financial barriers to student enrollment and retention at The Interdenominational Theological Center. We seek to assure that any qualified student who desires to pursue and complete an education at this institution can obtain appropriate resources to do so.
The Office of Financial Aid seeks to provide financial aid services which are sensitive to individual student needs and effective in enabling students to bridge the gap between family resources and educational expenses. The delivery of services will be characterized by timeliness, accuracy, clarity and customer friendliness, and will be accomplished through the simplest procedures consistent with fiscal responsibility and governmental and institutional regulations. The Office of Financial Aid is committed to providing student borrowers with loan counseling and information about loan indebtedness and repayment responsibilities. In responding to the diverse and changing needs and growth of the ITC community, a spirit of cooperation and an approach which is flexible, equitable, innovative and broad-ranging will be maintained.
Through a sincere commitment to all students and their families, the Office of Financial Aid at The Interdenominational Theological Center strives to eliminate financial and other barriers to higher education. We make a conscious effort to reach out to those with exceptional economic and educational needs. We are dedicated to providing high-quality service in a fair, sensitive, and confidential environment to all individuals, regardless of background, culture, or lifestyle.
