ACMT Payment Plan

Alberta College of Massage Therapy offers an in-house Monthly Payment Plan option for student financing. Students can make payments towards their tuition throughout the duration of the program. There is no credit-check required, and available payment methods include:

  • Credit Card Authorization
  • E-Transfer
  • Post-Dated Cheques

In lieu of interest accumulation, there is a one-time $250 Payment Plan Fee added to the remaining tuition balance. The overall balance is then divided across the term length of the program. Under standard practice, monthly payment plans do not exceed the length of the program. Upon completion of the program, official documentation will not be released until payment is made in full.
