I am applying for a scholarship. Should I wait to apply for an Ascent bootcamp loan?
You can apply for an Ascent bootcamp loan at the same time as applying for scholarships – in fact, we recommend it! Scholarships are a great way to supplement your funding. You can also apply for a loan if you already have a scholarship, or even if you plan to apply for scholarships in the future.
If you receive a scholarship after you apply for a loan, we can easily lower your loan amount before we send your tuition funds to your school. To request a loan decrease, log in to your Ascent portal or email [email protected] with the amount of your scholarship. If you need to lower your loan amount after your funds have been sent, you can simply apply your funds to your loan balance at any time without prepayment penalty.
Although we can decrease your loan amount, we can’t increase your loan amount. If you apply for less than the maximum tuition and then realize you do need more funds, please log in to your Ascent portal and submit a new application.
