Payments are expected only when you find employment earning at least $30,000 annually. We trust you to inform us when you start employment. If the upfront 20% down payment presents an economic hardship, please see the Scholarship section below.

Scholarship

You can attend our program with $0 upfront payment! If the 20% down payment for the Deferred Payment option presents an economic hardship for you, you can apply for a scholarship in the program application form and we will cover the down payment cost. We want everyone that can benefit from the program to be able to attend the program.

You will still be responsible for the remaining 80% of the program cost in the future as per the Tuition Payment Agreement you will sign, if you are admitted to the program. Your payments will start only after you are employed earning at least $30,000 per year.
