Financial Aid Options

While Body In Mind does not directly offer financial aid for many reasons, there are other options available.


BODY IN MIND MASSAGE INSTITUTE is approved to operate as a Private Career School by The State of New Jersey Department of Education and Department of Labor and Workforce Development.

We are listed on site:
The New Jersey Training Opportunities website (NJTOPPS) is home to New Jersey’s Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL) and Consumer Report Card (CRC). The ETPL is a comprehensive listing of all schools and organizations offering occupational education and job training programs that are eligible to receive publically funded tuition assistance.

Deciding whether or not to pursue additional education or training often relies on one’s ability to receive funding or tuition assistance. New Jersey offers many options for training programs and funding through grants for those who qualify.

Eligibility may depend on a number of factors and is determined by speaking directly with a member of our One-Stop Career Center Staff. “

“New Jersey’s One-Stop Career Centers provide a multitude of services such as:

  • job search assistance
  • training and education assistance
  • specialized services
  • on-site resource rooms (PCs, telephones, etc.)”

Sponsorships are available through Massage Envy, the largest employer of Massage Therapists in the United States.
  • A local participating franchise owner or manager would meet with a potential student and decide to hire him/her simultaneous to enrolling in our program.
  • This would result in an upfront reduction of $1,000 of tuition cost for the “sponsored” student.
  • Once graduated and licensed, the sponsored student would commit to work at Massage Envy who would reimburse our graduate $100/month for up to two years to offset his/her loan, resulting in a $3,400 total Sponsorship.
