All financial obligation must be met prior to final exam and collection of diploma or certificate. All payments are interest free, however a $30 admin fee is require and late fees may occur if the commitment is not met. The first payment is due 2 weeks from the day the student begins school and the same day each month thereafter until the balance is paid in full.

Advanced Paying Option (APO)

This option allows students to make payment towards a future class. The student will be added to a waiting list until the full payment is received and then he or she may start classes. For example; (John wants to start classes in January, but she does not have the money to pay. John can create a flexible, weekly, biweekly or month plan starting in September or earlier to start classes in January). There is no admin fee, interest or advance payment penalty.
