Financial Aid

While we do not directly offer financing to our students, one of our missions is to advise and connect students with the various options for funding their education with CPDI in Pennsylvania, including loans and grants for mechanic trade schools. These options include student loans, federal funding, and even private lending options.

Get Your Hands Dirty!

CPDI is voluntarily accredited by ACCSC, the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges, which provides a ‘stamp of approval’ on our curriculum, our trainers and our training practices. This accreditation opens up opportunities for our students to receive federal loans and grants for our mechanic trade school in Pennsylvania. These funding programs include Pell grants and FAFSA.

Funding Options – Federal Vs. Private Student Loans

  • We recommend using all of your eligibility for federal loans for our mechanic vocational school in Pennsylvania before turning to private loans.

Federal Direct Loans include Subsidized and Unsubsidized loans, the PLUS loan for Parents of undergraduate students (Parent PLUS)


Private alternative loans are managed through private lenders, issued in the student’s name, and require a co-signer. Eligibility, rates, terms, and conditions vary.

How Much Will the Training Cost?

Begin by reading and agreeing to the statement below. Then follow the instructions on the subsequent screens to receive an estimate of how much students similar to you paid to attend Central Pennsylvania Diesel Institute in 2021-22.

Please read. This calculator is intended to provide estimated net price information (defined as estimated cost of attendance – including tuition and required fees, books and supplies, room and board (meals), and other related expenses – minus estimated grant and scholarship aid) to current and prospective students and their families based on what similar students paid in a previous year.
By clicking below, I acknowledge that the estimate provided using this calculator does not represent a final determination, or actual award, of financial assistance, or a final net price; it is an estimate based on cost of attendance and financial aid provided to students in a previous year. The cost of attendance and financial aid availability change year by year. The estimates shall not be binding on the Secretary of Education, the institution of higher education, or the State.
Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to be eligible for, and receive, an actual financial aid award that includes Federal grant, loan, or work-study assistance. For more information on applying for Federal student aid, go to
