Financial Aid

It is our passion at Sound of Sounds Institute of Creative Arts and Technology / Creative Arts Skills Warehouse to close the gap between the have and the have nots, create equal access to all previously disadvantaged youth and finally to redress the creative industry. Funding college has many critical steps, so S.O.S.I.C.A.S.T has a dedicated financial aid department to walk you through each stage of the process.

Understanding Types of Available Aid

There are many categories of financial aid available, which come from different sources.

  • Grants are a type of financial aid that does not have to be repaid in most circumstances.
  • Loans pertain to borrowed money – either from public or private sources – that must be repaid with interest.
  • Work study refers to a program that allows student to earn money through various job opportunities at Sound of Sounds International.
  • Bursaries and Scholarships are funds awarded to students based on certain factors, such as academic achievement or financial need.  S.O.S.I.C.A.S.T’s Financial Aid Guide here.

Maintaining Eligibility

While attending at Sound of Sounds, students must maintain a status of Satisfactory Progress and meet specific credit-hour/weeks-of-instruction requirements in order to receive their financial aid.

Students not actively attending due to a Suspension, Termination or Withdrawal will not receive award disbursements while on an Interruption of Training.
