Do you need financial assistance?

Financial Assistance:

The Student Tuition Deferment Program, or STDP is a tuition financing program for Akilah students who are unable to pay 100% of tuition fees.

How does it work?

  • Students can defer up to 70% of tuition each academic year
  • Students are required to pay the other 30% of the tuition in two installments each year
  • Students must pay a quarterly Service Fee while studying at Akilah
  • Students repay the deferred amount of tuition plus service fees on a monthly basis for two years following graduation
  • If a graduate is not able to repay immediately after graduation, she may be offered a six month grace period before beginning repayments

For students on the Student Loan Program the structure will be:


  • The program enables talented students to access an education at Akilah
  • It helps to minimizes school dropouts due to financial issues
  • STDP allows students to focus on their education, rather than worry how to pay the entire tuition amount while studying
  • The program provides valuable financial training for students to master skills in saving, budgeting, banking and credit
