Tuition at Elite Massage School (EMS) is about $12,700 **.
Student tuition covers the cost of normal classroom (Monday to Thursday) instruction and program administration only.
Absences, unsatisfactory academic performance, and disciplinary actions create additional administrative costs which may be passed onto the student in form of an Administrative Fee (these are detailed in the student handbook).
Additional costs for books, supplies, and listed items will be the responsibility of the student to obtain. A list will be given before the first start of class.
There are (3) in house payment options available in order to pay for your Tuition.
The following payment options will require a setup of EFT (Electronic fund transfer). We can take payments in form of Mastercard, Visa, American Express (AMEX), Discover, Venmo, Chime, and PayPal.
Option # 1:
0% Interest. At least a $1000 Deposit (one month before start of class). Remainder due on the first day of class.
3% Interest. At least a $1000 Deposit (one month before start of class). Remainder is to be paid in equal installments due before graduation.
9% Interest. At least a $1000 Deposit (one month before start of class). Remaining payments are individualized by the students and will be contracted by our admissions staff. This option allows flexibility for students to pay installments through school, but also allows them to extend their tuition payments up to 3 years.
** Tuition is decided upon each student's financial ability and the option they choose for payment. Each students schooling will be personalized.
