Types of Aid


AAPT students have access to a vast array of financial aid options not available at other schools and payment plans to help fund their education.

Massachusetts State Assistance Programs

Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC)
Available to Massachusetts residents who are eligible under the program’s guidelines. Assistance generally ranges from $3500 to $5000.

Massachusetts Individual Training Account Program (ITA)
Available to Massachusetts residents who are eligible under the Adult and Dislocated Worker Program. Assistance of up to $5000 is available.

Massachusetts Training Opportunities Program (TOP / Section 30)
Available to Massachusetts residents who are receiving Unemployment Insurance benefits. Note: this program does not provide grants or scholarships, but rather allows eligible applicants to continue collecting unemployment benefits while attending school.

AAPT payment plans

AAPT offers in-house, interest-free payment plans to help students manage any tuition balance left over after government funding, as well as to provide an alternate option for students who are not eligible for federal, state, or military aid. Payment plans do not require a credit check and are designed to make funding tuition easier by dividing the total amount due into manageable monthly installments. All AAPT students are eligible for payment plan options.

Students interested in obtaining financial aid or in setting up a payment plan to enroll in fitness training courses should make an appointment for an individual consultation with an AAPT Admissions and Financial Aid Advisor in New York or Boston. As part of our Federal Student Aid program, we publish important data to help guide our applicants, including personal training academy program costs, financing options, and student completion and placement rates. It’s all in AAPT’s Gainful Employment report.

Federal, state and military programs available to AAPT students include but are not limited to those listed above. Note: Each AAPT student retains the right to secure financing from an external institution or program of his or her choosing.

The Clery Act AAPT Annual Security Report
