Do I have to pay the entire cost up front?

A student is required to pay for the medical/drug screen, the psychological test, background check and a type 1 status record, during the application process. Credit card payments are accepted and students will be given instructions on how to pay by credit card when they receive their acceptance letter. A copy of the confirmed payment will need to be brought to the class facilitator to show proof of payment. Although students are permitted to prepay for everything upfront, a student may opt for our installment, which has no interest rate or fee to participate. The plan calls for a payment of $1750.00 to be paid on Orientation Day of the course, a second payment of $1750.00 is due by mid-term exam.
