• Financial Aid Policies
• KHS Payment Plan
Kentucky Horseshoeing School is aware of the financial burden of a college education. In an effort to offer an alternative payment option, Kentucky Horseshoeing School partners with TFC Tuition Financing to offer our students and families a tuition payment plan each semester. This plan will allow students and families to avoid the traditional lump-sum payments and spread this payment evenly for up to 18 months, depending on length of program student is enrolled in.
The TFC Tuition Payment Plan option permits students and families to budget costs for tuition, housing and fees. The program is not a loan and there is no credit check. There is a $500.00 service charge for this program, and monthly payments can be made from an automatic bank account draft or charged to a credit card. Please note that Tool purchases must be paid in full and cannot be included on any payment plan.
Payment plan enrollment beginning and ending dates vary depending on the class you are enrolled in. Typically, the enrollment dates are as follows for each semester:
January – October 1-December 15
April – January 1-March 15
July – April 1-June 15
Sept/Oct – July 1-September 15
The payment plan option is most beneficial when participants enroll early. Early enrollees can avoid the required down payment and maximize their timeframe of monthly payments.
For more details regarding the tuition payment plan, including enrollment deadlines and payment schedules, please contact the Financial Aid Office at Kentucky Horseshoeing School, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Private financing is available for educational expenses through two outside providers, TFC Credit Finance and Universal Finance Corporation. Loans can be taken for up to 48 months, at an average interest rate of 9%. A 20% down payment on total loan amount is required, along with a credit check and application fees. Loan repayment begins on day 30 of students’ education and continues through the end of the term of the loan. Payments can be made via automatic bank draft or credit card.

How Financial Aid is Determined
Change in Information
Awards are based on the information students provide on applications for aid. Changes to that information (marital status, number of dependents, place of residence, withdrawal from period of enrollment, reduction in the number of hours carried, change in academic program, Social Security or Veteran’s Benefits, etc.) must be reported promptly in writing to the Financial Aid Office
for a determination of the impact, if any, on the amount of funds awarded to the student. It is often necessary to revise awards, especially if federal or state funds are a part of the award, in order to avoid exceeding your demonstrated financial eligibility.
The Financial Aid Office must, therefore, reserve and/or modify the student’s award at any time. Failure to contact the Financial Aid Office may jeopardize continuation of aid, cause cancellation of aid, or require repayment of funds already disbursed to the student. All awards are contingent upon the availability of funds.
