As an independent college, we do not qualify for federal support programs. To provide financial support and assistance, Oaksterdam offers the following options:
Our customized payment plan lets you register for the Self-paced or Semester Program with a down payment and make weekly payments for the duration of the program.
You may also qualify for an Income Share Agreement that lets you postpone your payments until you are gainfully employed.
The city of San Francisco also qualifies us to accept grants for qualified Equity Applicants. For more information about San Francisco Equity Program, please read our help center article. *Please Note: San Francisco's equity program currently has no funding. You are still welcome to fill out the application, and we will notify you when the city approves further funding.
Students may also procure financing through the California Equity Grant Program or through one of the many organizations that provide Grants and Loans for Minorities and Women.
