Academy Tuition is $5,620 if pre-paid. We also offer a payment plan, which consists of an initial payment of $2,000 followed by $500 per month for eight months (totaling $6000). Your credit card will be charged on or around the final day of each month after the initial payment. If you are accepted into the program, your acceptance email will offer you both pre-paid and payment plan options. Once course materials have shipped, we regret we do not offer tuition refunds.
