Documented Foundations Studies and Teacher Education credits from other programs will be honored. Tuition fees for the two Summer Course weeks, required for a T.E. diploma, are included in the overall tuition.

A $100.00 enrollment deposit towards tuition is required of all accepted students at the time of their acceptance to secure a place in the incoming class.

We strive to keep tuition as low as possible so that our programs may be accessible to a wide range of interested students. Inquire about some modest tuition reduction possibilities.

Our tuition can be paid in three different ways: lump sum, in trimesters, or on a monthly basis spread out over ten months. The first tuition payment is due in July. Students who fall behind in their payments may be asked to discontinue the program unless a firm payment plan is established that will have the tuition paid in full by the end of the school year.
