Financial Aid for the Summer Sessions

Since most students prefer to receive their maximum financial aid eligibility during Fall and Spring semesters when total tuition costs tend to be higher, Alverno does not automatically package loans for students who are taking summer classes.  Learn more in our Financial Aid for Summer Sessions section.

Education Tax Benefits

The federal government provides a number of tax incentives that can help defray the cost of higher education. These incentives come in a couple of forms: Tax Credits, which directly reduce the amount of tax you are liable for, and Tax Deductions, which reduce the amount of income on which you pay taxes.  Link to the 87 page IRS Publication 970, Tax Benefits for Education at https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p970.pdf for detailed guidance.
