We recommend meeting with our Admissions Team first to review your options and to successfully get started on your financing options. Call for your appointment to apply today.

Generous No-Interest Payment Plans are available

6-month Day Class participants may split the cost of tuition into six equal payments.

10-month Night Class participants may split the cost of tuition into ten equal payments.

Please note: For Students to take advantage of the generous “no-interest” tuition payment plan, they must have a credit/debit card or banking information on file with the Institute, which is charged on the first of each month for their monthly tuition payment. A convenience fee of 3.5% will be added to all debit/credit card payments. The student may pay tuition in full up front or make financial arrangements in advance to remit monthly payments in advance of the first of the month using cash or check payments. Students are also required to pay the Enrollment Fee of $300, and Supplies cost of $900, at least 2 weeks prior to the class start date. Please note, all tuition must be paid in full before the Final Exams may be taken.

Student Loans are available through our tuition finance partner

Don’t let affordability prevent you from pursuing a career you love. Our tuition financing partner offers flexible loan options that can be tailored to your tuition and class structure. To learn more, or to see if you qualify for our student loan, schedule your appointment with our financial advisors.

This is the student direct link to apply for our Student Loan Financing Program directly:

 TOMS RIVER CAMPUS – CLICK HERE

 WEST NEW YORK CAMPUS – CLICK HERE

This is a personal term loan, which works similar to a car loan. The interest rate is between 9.9% and 18.99%, depending upon your credit and amount you will be financing. The more of a down payment you have, the more detailed personal information (including  job history and references) you put on the loan application, the better the approval/rate. Payments range, depending upon the amount borrowed, approximately $125 - $185/month for a 60-month term, with the first payment due 30-40 days from the start of the program. There is no prepayment penalty.

State Workforce Investment Opportunity Grants are available

... To those who qualify. Learn more by visiting the state Training Opportunities website www.njtopps.com : 

“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 publicly 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. “

Tuition Sponsorships (like a scholarship) are available

...through our Employer Partners:

Sponsorships are available through Massage Envy, the largest employer of Massage Therapists in the U.S.A. and 

Sponsorships are available through Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spas, the second largest Spa Franchise in the U.S.

Sponsorships are available through other independently owned spas and clinics in various locations. Please ask us for details. 

How does a Sponsorship work?

  • A participating franchise owner or manager in a location near where you live would meet with a potential student and decide to hire him/her/they simultaneously to enrolling in our program.
  • You may or may not have to work at the location in a supporting role while enrolled in your educational program with us.
  • Depending on eligibility, students may receive a “Tuition Sponsorship Grant” anywhere between $2,000 - $7,000  (coverage goes toward cost of tuition) depending on student qualifications and the terms of their sponsorship agreements.
  • In exchange for the tuition “grant” from the employer, students agree to work for the spa or clinic as a licensed massage therapist for an agreed upon period of time after graduating from our program and receiving their New Jersey State Massage and Bodywork Therapist license.
  • Students are responsible for Enrollment and Supplies fees. 

 NOTE: ** Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will no longer apply to private career training schools, as of July 2024, including for massage and bodywork therapy training programs. Please review our currently available options which will cover tuition costs similarly to what FAFSA previously offered. **
