Investing in Your Education: Financial Aid

Your education is an investment

CG Spectrum is proud to offer you the most affordable courses for the quality of education received, and offer a range of flexible payment plans. As a student, you’ll be mentored by some of the film and game industry’s top artists. And the professional techniques and workflows you’ll learn from them will serve you throughout your career. 

We are often asked about financial aid. As an international school, CG Spectrum is not affiliated with any regionally accredited body, so we do not offer financial assistance. However, if education is your priority, these financial aid options may allow you to focus on your goals, instead of the barriers keeping you from reaching them.

CG Spectrum Installments

We have a range of payment options available for all of our courses from upfront payment with savings of 20%, monthly payment plans or affiliated lenders with weekly payment options. The payment schedules depend on the course you are interested in studying. 

We believe our courses offer the best possible value when compared to other schools and we work with students individually to reach their educational goals. 

Tuition Reimbursement

Are you working in a related field? Some employers have money set aside for professional development. Ask your supervisor or HR department if they would consider covering part or all of your tuition. 

Potential Tax Write-offs

Do you qualify for a tax deduction on your education?

You may be able to claim a deduction for self-education costs if your study is work-related. This could include refresher courses, courses on current developments, and academic or vocational courses. So if you’re already working as a concept artist or something similar, you may qualify for an education deduction.

Tax laws differ greatly depending on the country or region you’re from, so talk to a tax professional to see if you’re eligible.

Important note: This section is for informational purposes only. You should ALWAYS consult a certified tax professional in your country or region before making tax-related decisions. 

Private Student Loans

Talk to your bank or private loan provider about financing options.

Government Assistance or Grants

While we are not in a position to offer grants through CG Spectrum, many countries and regions offer government assistance or educational grants for continuing education and professional development. Try doing a Google search to see if you qualify for any educational grants in your city.

If you are in Canada, see if you qualify for the Registered Education Savings Plan and The CST Advantage.
