PROGRAM COSTS AND REFUND POLICY

FULL TIME PROGRAM PROGRAM COSTS

The student must secure arrangements to pay the program tuition and fees in the amount of ten thousand dollars ($10,500.00) at the time of registration and the signing of the enrollment contract. This contract must be signed by the student, School Official of Carlson College of Massage Therapy, and a witness. The program costs include the tuition, program fees, the required textbooks, a portable massage table or chair and Student Liability Insurance. An initial payment of at least $750.00 at registration will allow the student to receive their textbooks the first day of the program. In addition, the student’s table or a chair will be ordered.

Breakdown of program costs

Tuition: $9,000

Non refundable costs: $1,500 Equipment: $400 (massage table or chair) Supplies: $750 (required textbooks, class materials, class handouts, manikin supplies, lotion for        classroom instruction and clinic and one CCMT t-shirt) Administrative fees: $350

Additional expenses beyond the tuition and other costs as noted above, include 4 sets of twin sheets (we recommend a dark color or print), 8 bath towels, and a uniform, which consists of a set of scrubs. The uniform must meet the clinic policies and will be used later in the student clinic (estimated cost of these items is $175). The student is responsible to purchase and have these available throughout their enrollment in our program.

There is a fee for missed hands on assessments ($30) and course quizzes/exams ($20) due to unexcused absences.

The school will provide the lotion (Body Glo) for all classroom instruction and the Student Clinic. For practicing outside of school, lotion is available for purchase in the main office. Students who require a special lotion must communicate this need with Administration in advance of the first day of the program.

REFUND POLICY: Full Time Program and Part Time Program

All tuition refunds exclude the equipment, supplies, and administrative fee, which totals $1,500.00.  This non-refundable $1,500 charge is applied equally to both payment periods ($750 per payment period). 

(1) In the case that an applicant is denied admission into the program, all charges, including the tuition, equipment, supplies, and paid administrative fee, will be fully refunded.

(2) Should an applicant cancel their enrollment prior to the start of the program, there will be no tuition, equipment supplies, and administrative fee charges. Payments that have been received will be refunded within 45 days of written notice of enrollment cancelation (excluding the non-refundable application fee).  

(3) If the student cancels the enrollment agreement within the first two week of instruction, there will be no tuition charged to the student. Please note that applicable equipment charges, supplies, and administrative fees will be non-refundable.   
 
(4) The institution assesses tuition, equipment, supplies and administrative fees charges for the program in substantially equal increments at the beginning of each of the two payment periods in the program.  The institution will make a pro rata refund of tuition charges to a student who terminates from any of the institution’s postsecondary educational programs or courses after the first two calendar weeks in an amount that is not less than ninety-five percent of the amount of tuition charges to the student multiplied by the ratio of the number of scheduled clock hours remaining in the payment period to the total number of scheduled clock hours in the payment period.  If the student has completed sixty percent or more of a payment period, the student shall not be refunded any tuition charges. 

(5) If a student terminates the program after the first two calendar weeks due to the student’s physical incapacity or due to the transfer of the student’s spouse’s employment to another city, the terminating student shall receive a refund of the tuition charges in an amount that equals the amount of tuition charged to the student for the payment period multiplied by the ratio of the remaining number of scheduled clock hours in the payment period to the total number of scheduled clock hours in the payment period.  The student will be required to submit proper medical documentation to Carlson College of Massage Therapy to verify physical incapacity.  The student will be required to submit workplace documentation to Carlson College of Massage Therapy outlining the transfer of their spouse’s employment to another city. All documentation (incapacity or employment transfer) must be submitted at the time of termination of enrollment.  

(6) This policy offers the following options to a student who is a member, or the spouse of a member if the member has a dependent child, of the Iowa national guard or reserve forces of the United States and who is ordered to state military service, federal service, or duty:

A.  Withdraw from the student’s entire registration and receive a full refund of tuition and mandatory fees.

B.  Make arrangements with the Carlson College of Massage Therapy Administration for course grades, or for incomplete’s that shall be completed by the student at a later date. If such arrangements are made, the registration for those courses shall remain intact and tuition and mandatory fees shall be assessed for those courses. Any course for which arrangements cannot be made for grades or incompletes shall be considered dropped and the tuition and mandatory fees for the course refunded.

All students receiving a refund for a special military circumstance must provide proper documentation to Carlson College of Massage Therapy Administration to verify a change in soldier status. 

*All students who receive a credit balance of Title IV Funds within a payment period are responsible to repay Carlson College of Massage Therapy for all unearned Title IV money in that payment period.  Failure to make repayment may result in Carlson College of Massage Therapy using the services of a collection agency or the legal system for this debt.  The report of tuition due to a collections agency will result in a negative credit report filing.   

*All accepted and registered students who do not attend the program on the first day will be contacted via telephone and email, if both are available.  It will be communicated that they may still join the program by attending class or they will be removed from the class list after the fifth consecutive day of non-attendance following the first day of the contract start date.     

*All refunds are based upon the student’s last day of attendance.

*All refunds will be issued within 45 days from student’s last day of attendance.

Carlson is the place to go if you are anywhere in driving distance! I made a commute to attend and even moved to the area to be more fully immersed. The depth of knowledge that you get in a short time is incredible! I felt more than prepared to start a career. Whatever a client throws at me, I’m equipped to handle it. Not only was the education top notch, but the whole experience was full of lovely memories and relationships. Can’t recommend Carlson enough!

I graduated from this school and it truly sets you up for success. Straight out of school I had many people compliment me on my massage skills and I was prepared for my career. The teachers here are kind, warm, and super fun. I loved every minute of going to this school. I highly suggest it!

I love getting massages at Carlson College! The massage room is divided into several stations, with minimal whispered discussion allowed, making the atmosphere extremely peaceful and relaxing.
