There may be nothing more exciting than starting a vocational school program. At that point, the student has weighed their options, selected a future occupation, and is ready to start learning and gaining new skills.
At Pennco Tech, we believe working hands-on in a trade career is satisfying and provides room for career advancement. When students access financial aid, including student loans, to help pay for tuition and other educational expenses, they sometimes need help with financial management. For students in our vocational school programs in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, that’s where the Student Loan Counseling Department at Pennco Tech can help.
At Pennco Tech, our priority is to help students achieve their goals. Our trade career programs support the abilities of students to support themselves financially, advance in fulfilling careers, and contribute meaningfully to their communities. To those ends, we want to help students complete their programs and gain employment in their new occupation. Our services are available to students at both campus locations, in Blackwood, NJ, and Bristol, PA.
We formed the Student Loan Counseling Department in November 2011, and it has continued to evolve and support the mission of our vocational school. We assist students to help them understand the obligations and responsibilities that go with student loans. Our staff is available to help students comprehend the benefits of financial aid on their lives and to help them take the necessary steps to repay student loans.
To investigate how each student can best navigate through the required financial management, we keep the lines of communication open throughout their participation in the vocational school program and after graduation. We endeavor to promote an understanding of all financial obligations associated with student loans and provide resources that help plan repayment strategies. We can help explain financial details regarding amounts, payment timelines, and interest rates.
Cultivating a positive relationship with students and graduates, the Student Loan Counseling Department staff can assist with the examination of financial resources, budget planning, and setting realistic goals. Our goal is to help students avoid defaulting on loans, becoming delinquent, or falling behind in payment schedules.
We want to help walk you through methods for improving your credit rating and help you maintain solid financial footing as you start a new trade career. With over 10 years of experience with student loan counseling, we have the resources to help you handle this step of the educational process.
The Student Loan Counseling Department staff are available for meetings with students. We encourage students to take advantage of this assistance throughout their program and after graduation. We have found it’s often necessary to plan financial management of student loans ahead of graduation. When students have a clear understanding of the obligations associated with student loans, they can better plan those aspects of their financial management. Student loan considerations may impact their choice of job, location of home, mode of transportation, and monthly budgeting process.
We encourage students to contact these staff members at their campus location:
Blackwood, New Jersey, Campus
Student Loan Counseling Department Manager, Jasmine Price
Student Loan Coordinator, Carrie Moore
Bristol, Pennsylvania, Campus
Student Loan Coordinator, Victor Hom
The Student Loan Counseling Department encourages students and graduates to stay up to date with Pennco Tech, and our social media outlets are one way to follow current events. During the exciting, and possibly hectic, days of vocational school training, students can stay informed about any news related to student loans or financial aid. Graduates can monitor these sites for new financial information, as well.
Maintaining contact with Pennco Tech after graduation serves to remind alumni of the many services still available to them, including the Pennco for Life Program for updating skills, Lifetime Career Assistance, and networking opportunities. There are so many reasons to choose vocational school programs at Pennco Tech, including the availability of these resources after graduation.
With the resources available at Pennco Tech, students are encouraged to finish their vocational school program and pursue trade career success. We think it’s important to take advantage of financial aid and student loans when needed to help you access educational opportunities. Let us offer student loan counseling and other resources to help you start your new career while meeting financial obligations. Contact us today.

I enjoyed all my teachers. They made it interesting and challenging. I enjoyed going back to school at the age of 48! Career Services was a big help to me. Danielle was great. She helped me with my resume and showed me how to apply. I got the job with Dietz and Watson! Pennco Tech was the right choice for me as I get ready to start my career.Mark E. - Electrician Graduate
