For Parents

ATC provides students and parents with personalized, one-on-one assistance in order to make the financial aid application and admissions process as easy as possible.

Knowing Your Options

There are several programs and resources in place to help our students and their families afford an ATC education, including the following:

Tuition Help Through Financial Aid*: Students with a financial need may be eligible to receive financial aid. Federal financial aid programs (Title IV Programs) include Pell Grants and Federal Direct Loans (Subsidized and Unsubsidized Stafford Student Loans and PLUS Loans to parents). State programs include the Pennsylvania State Grant and special programs administered by the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA).

ATC hosts financial aid Q&A sessions and seminars throughout the year to help parents and students better understand how to work through the financial aid application process. You can find out more about applying for financial aid on our financial aid page.

Available Scholarship Opportunities*: ATC’s High School Scholarship Program offers annual scholarship opportunities for high school seniors. The school also contributes scholarships to other organizations that maintain individual standards for their scholarship eligibility and awarding processes.

Those with military service experience may be eligible to participate in Imagine America’s Military Award Program (MAP), a scholarship that benefits veterans in pursuit of career training.

Visit our high school scholarship or military benefit and scholarship pages for more information, or call us to find out how participating clubs and sponsors may be able to help.

Part-Time Employment: We also assist and encourage our students to work part-time to help pay for tuition and other educational expenses. Our longstanding partnership with the Automobile Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia (ADAGP) and other automotive businesses in the area allow us to assist students in finding part-time positions during their enrollment. Students can use this income to help pay for tuition or to defray other expenses.

If you have questions about the admissions or the financial aid process, please reach out to our Exton (888-321-8992) or Warminster (888-881-8140) locations to speak with one of our knowledgeable staff members to discuss your options.
