While in the application, please note:
This is an investment in you and your future, so we do not use income nor employment history in our credit decisions. As long as you meet the below criteria, you'll most likely be approved for your Skills Fund financing:
Don't check the credit history boxes? Either add a cosigner to start your loan application or if credit denied, you may be eligible for an Access Loan.
ADTC & Skills Fund are proud to offer a new take on financing; one in which capable students have no barriers to professional opportunity and success. Students credit denied for a traditional Skills Fund loan may be eligible for the Skills Fund & ADTC Access Program.
How It Works:
Within 24-hours of receiving a credit denial, Skills Fund will email you with details of your Access Loan eligibility. Please note: not all students will be eligible for an Access Loan.
Loan Terms Include:
Same interest rates, fees, and loan duration as a traditional Skills Fund loan, for which you already applied. Tool allowance is not available for Access Loans.
Ease of Access:
You do not need to reapply to qualify for an Access Loan. Simply respond to the Skills Fund email sent within 24 hours of your credit denial or email CustomerTrust@Skills.Fund.
Within the loan application, you will find two fields for financing: one for tuition and one for your tool allowance. Within each field, you are able to input the exact amount you want to borrow. To borrow a tool allowance, finance at least $2,000 in tuition.
You'll start making full payments roughly 1 month after you secure employment after ADTC. You can calculate your estimated monthly payment using our loan calculator. For a $7,500 36-month loan, the monthly payment is approximately $248. For a $7,500 60-month loan, the monthly payment is approximately $170.
You can (1) apply individually, and should you not be approved, you may be eligible for an Access Loan; or (2) initiate your loan process with a cosigner.
During the loan application process, we will ask you for the following information:
Apply for the loan after your graduate from ADTC and receive an employment offer from a company.
Yes, we will check your credit, including your credit score. Note we do not use income or employment data in underwriting.
You will be charged an origination fee of 4.0%. This amount will be added to the amount of tuition you borrow, and included in the total loan principal amount you finance. This fee helps cover the administrative fees associated with originating the loan and charged by our partner bank. Please see terms in "More Info on Terms" above.
Please note: this fee is already reflected in the general APR outlined above and in the loan calculator. Interested in learning more about your interest rate vs. APR? Check out our blog post here.
Shortly after completing your loan application, you will receive provisional credit approval details via a confirmation window in the application. If you are credit approved, your loan will then be certified by ADTC. If you are not credit approved, you may be given the opportunity to amend your application with a cosigner.
Your tool allowance will be sent to you on the second Wednesday after you secure employment. All students applying for a Skills Fund loan can elect to have their tool allowance disbursed via electronic funds transfer or mailed directly to the address provided in their loan application.
Please allow 1 - 5 business days for your electronic funds transfer to be reflected in your bank account. For all students who elect to have funds mailed to their address, please allow 5 - 10 business days for your check to arrive via U.S. Standard Mail.
Please note: Tool allowances may not be financed apart from tuition financing.
After completing ADTC training, apply for a loan as soon as you've received an offer of employment. On the second Wednesday after you've applied for a loan, tuition is sent directly to ADTC.
