We are excited that you have chosen our school to expand your education!  Armstrong has a proven curriculum that demonstrates a successful learning experience.   We understand that the cost of education has risen, however, the Office of Financial Aid is here to assist all students by improving the students' knowledge of aid.  Scholarships, grants, and loans are all ways a student may fund their education.  We want Armstrong’s students to be aware of the many opportunities to finance an education.
