The DAVE School has added additional financing options to their Online Game Production, Visual Effects and Motion Graphics Bachelor’s Degree programs. Previously, students had to use Tuition Options or Cash Pay in order to enroll into the Bachelor’s Degree Program. Tuition Options requires a 10% down payment, 10-year repayment plan and requires repayment while the student is in school.
With Meritize loan options, there is no down payment and students have the option to defer payment until after graduation if they qualify. Meritize is a merit and credit based loan with a quick application process and approval in minutes. Interest rates are dependent on credit and can go as low as 4% and as high as 18%. The DAVE School previously accepted Meritize loan options on Diploma programs only.
“Our faculty and staff have worked very hard to ensure the skill level of our students exceed Industry expectations. It is due to the recent successes of our graduates and their career paths that have opened the doors for this partnership. I am very proud of the advancements we have made here at DAVE in the last two years under my tutelage. I look forward to even more in the years to come with Meritize as a strong finance partner,” states Gina Rhodes, Executive Director of The DAVE School.
