U.S. students have two options for paying their tuition. The first option is to pay the entire cost up front, including all required materials and lab fees. We realize this may not be possible for many students, though, so we also offer a financing option. In general, the CMS payment plan requires students to pay the full cost of their materials and a percentage of the tuition and lab fees before the first day of class. The remaining balance will be divided into equal payments for the duration of the chosen course, with all costs having to be paid in full before the completion of the program. Students wishing to pay their tuition on a payment plan should speak with a financial advisor at CMS to work out an appropriate schedule of payments.
