Financial Assistance with the American Board

In addition to our installment payment plans, which allow candidates to pay for the cost of the program over eight months, the American Board offers financial assistance to candidates who qualify under the USDA’s Reduced School Lunch Income Eligibility Guidelines. If you qualify for financial assistance, you will receive a discount on the cost of the American Board Standard Certification Program in the subject of your choosing. The discount will be taken directly out of the cost of the program. You are able to pay for the program using our installment payment option.

See the chart below to determine if you are eligible for a financial assistance discount. If your income is higher than what is listed in the chart below, you unfortunately do not qualify for the Financial Assistance pricing; however, we would be happy to work with you to develop an installment payment plan that works for you.
