Caribbean Aviation Training Institute Inc cannot offer federal student loans
We do not have data on loan repayments for this school. Although students can receive federal student loans through Caribbean Aviation Training Institute Inc, it seems that very few students typically require loans. In the most recent reporting year, no full-time freshmen took out federal loans.
Context: Need met for degree-seeking undergraduate students
SOURCES:
This school provides only limited data on graduation rates and loan repayment. You might want to reach out to the school to see if they can provide evidence of student success. This school is a private for-profit institution. There are many good for-profit schools, but there are also many that are predatory. There are laws requiring the reporting of graduation rates and student loan repayment history to help to warn you if there may be problems. However, newer schools may not yet have that data and it's difficult for potential students to know if they will be safe.

Student gender distribution
The donut shows the gender breakdown for students at Caribbean Aviation Training Institute Inc.
Why are genders so rarely 50-50?

There are multiple outside factors that can affect the gender balance of students recruited by schools. As an example, within less-affluent families higher education is more frequently attained by women than by men, a phenomenon explored in the Atlantic. Therefore, schools serving lower-income populations may be more likely to see a gender imbalance. On the other hand, some colleges may offer predominantly degrees that are stereotypically associated with a single gender, affecting the ratio of men to women accordingly.

Costs and Financial Aid
Net price: the best estimate for the cost to attend

Most schools publish tuition rates that give them room to offer both scholarships and financial aid where applicable. Your best guess at what you might pay is to see what others with similar family incomes have paid. A more tailored and accurate estimate is available at this school's net price calculator.

Understanding net price

With their net price calculators, many colleges and universities give an idea of what merit-based aid might accompany need-based aid. For schools that share such data, we also provide financial aid data in the Finanical Aid sections.

There are some caveats to consider when using the net price estimates:

  • The net price calculation is weighted by this school's proportion of students living on- and off-campus and this school's estimate of off-campus costs, which may cause the net price methodology be a bit inconsistent from school to school.
  • Parental income and student financial aid eligibility is sometimes more complicated than the simple family income number reported here.
  • The net price calculation for all students is inclusive of students who received any institutional or government aid, but at the family income levels the net price only considers the tuition paid by those who qualified for federal aid.

You can get a little better guess at what you would pay by using this school's net price calculator.

Percentage of students receiving any aid

The donut, based on 204 full-time first-time degree seeking students at Caribbean Aviation Training Institute Inc, shows the percentage of those who received any financial aid (including merit-based scholarships), subdivided by family income.

Historic Annual Costs

See how this school's published costs have changed over the year, and how their cost trends compare with other private schools.

Published costs may have little to do with what you actually pay

It's important to remember that a school's published costs may not be indicative of what it will actually cost to attend. Time magazine wrote about this in their article Yes, you can get a college to cut its tuition price. Nonetheless, this inflation-adjusted look at the historic annual costs for tuition, fees, books, and supplies can give you an idea of the costs you might expect in the coming years. Comparing the total costs inclusive of room and board (if applicable) with the annual net price estimates in the previous tab will help you determine the financial aid package to expect.

Private and public universities' charges are difficult to compare due to the in-state and out-of-state price differences of public universities, and therefore we only compare Caribbean Aviation Training Institute Inc to other private schools within your chosen context group.

Context and trends: Core operating margin

The core operating margin is the percentage by which core revenues exceed (or, when negative, fall short of) core expenses, so higher is better here. This margin excludes finances for non-academic expenses such as housing, hospitals, or other independent operations. For schools with large endowments, this measure can be volitile from year-to-year without indicating concern because investment losses and gains are driving this figure, but if an institution's margin is trending downwards or consistently negative, you should be concerned.
