Payment Plan and Financial Assistance (PPFA)

No students are denied access to courses due to a lack of funds. Our Payment Plan and Financial Assistance fund, PPFA, is supported by Nitartha Institute students. PPFA is designed for students to help fellow students in need. It allows for tuition discounts/reductions and/or deferred payments by installments. If you need additional financial assistance, you could fill out the Payment Plan and Financial Assistance (PPFA) application form

If you're inspired by this project, please consider donating to PPFA.
