Through generous donations from alumni and friends, the Jennifer Pecot Scholarship Fund has afforded many students the opportunity to complete the NTC or NTP class who otherwise wouldn't have.

Another option is to pursue a personal loan through your own financial institution. All funds must be received by the NTA before you can be registered and reserve a spot in class.

Please note that if you are an international student, your tuition does need to be in USD, so your bank will need to do the conversion for you. Any conversion/transaction fees are not the responsibility of the NTA.

Australia & Canada

Financing for the NTP Australia class is available from Auswide Bank. For more information, visit the NTA Australia site.

Currently, we are not working directly with any specific financial institutions in Canada. Personal loans through your own financial institution are accepted.
