Exclusive Scholarships and Financial Support at AIM Interface School

At AIM Interface School, we believe in empowering the Greater Omaha workforce through convenient and affordable tech education. To provide greater opportunity, we’ve partnered with community builders to offer a variety of financial support opportunities for our students, so you can focus on your education, instead of how to pay for it.

Community

Building the pipeline of tech talent in our community is at the forefront of AIM Interface School’s mission. To help members of our community take advantage of our training, we’ve partnered with the following groups to offer $500 off AIM Interface School courses:

  • Nonprofits: Employees of a 501(c)(3) receive $500 off their tuition for Foundations or Specialization courses.
  • AIGA Members: AIGA members receive $500 off their tuition for Foundations of Web Development and/or WordPress Specialization courses.
  • Startup Collaborative Members: Employees of a Startup Collaborative company receive $500 off their tuition for Foundations or Specialization courses.
  • Employers: Employers interested in sending multiple employees through AIM Interface School courses for upskilling and/or retraining can pay the full tuition for the first student and get $500 off each additional student that is enrolled in the same session. This group discount works across multiple courses within the same calendar session.

Colleges

AIM Interface School values the importance of tech education, no matter how you are gaining your skills. For this reason, we’re proud to partner with educators to offer financial support to students currently enrolled at the following universities:

  • Creighton University: Students currently enrolled in any program at Creighton University receive $500 off any Foundations or Specialization course.

  • Foundations Discount: Students who have taken a Foundations course get a $500 discount off Specialization courses so you can continue building your skill set.

Payment Options

We know our students come from diverse backgrounds and lifestyles, and we are committed to offering flexibility for all. That’s why we offer payment options.

  • Monthly Payments: Pay off your Interface course over several months. Our standard payment plan requires only 50% of tuition upfront before the class starts, with the remaining balance split over five automatic monthly payments.
  • Paid-in-full Savings: Save 5% when you pay your tuition in full before your course starts.

No matter which course you’re interested in, we have financial support options to help you focus on what you’re learning, rather than how to pay for it. Reach out to us at any time if you need help finding the right financial support or picking the classes that match your career goals.
