New! Reserve your place in an upcoming course using PayPal.

        For students wishing to pay tuition using a credit or debit card, PayPal can be used to make tuition payments. This is only offered for deposit payments in order to hold your place in a course, or for full course tuition payments. We ask that if using Paypal for full tuition payments, that half of the Paypal fee is added to your total tuition, splitting the Paypal fee with us. You are also welcome to use Venmo if you’d like, as they have no transaction fees taken out. Payment plans must be arranged through automatic monthly bill pay through your bank.

        Tuition is based on a sliding scale of what you can afford, higher income students paying the highest end of the sliding scale. A $100 discount is given towards apprenticeship tuitions paid in full. If using PayPal for full tuition payments, a fee to use PayPal is added since they take a percentage out of every payment that goes through them. Checks are much preferred for full tuition payments. If you have questions about paying through PayPal, please contact us by phone or email, or contact PayPal directly!
