Admission Processes and Financial Aid
The website is easy to use and offers an interactive contact form. Completion of this form is the first step in the process. You will need to know which campus you want to attend. The school will then contact you and assist you through the process of admissions.
The school recommends that you then visit the campus. After your scheduled visit you will meet with the admissions team. At that time the requirements will be given and a question and answer session will take place. You can then meet with the financial aid officers to see what money assistance you may be eligible for at Platt College.
The financial aid officer will help guide you through the school, state, and federal options for assistance. The website doesn't indicate whether military veterans, active military members, their family, or dependents can receive aid from Platt. You would want to ask the financial aid officer about what military benefits, if any, they offer.
