Cost & Payment Options

Discover the Carlson Difference Visit this page to learn about several key areas in our educational curriculum that will lead to success as a licensed massage therapist!

We are Iowa’s first COMTA accredited school! Sadly, that State of Iowa does very little to oversee massage therapy schools. Protect your education and your investment (time and tuition) and know that accreditation DOES matter!

You will clearly know what your education will cost. Tuition options and full disclosure of the costs of our programs are available to you today. Please note that we do also offer Federal Financial Aid, to those that qualify, as well as a no interest (one time $30 set up fee) payment plan!

Our student clinic is run like no other in the State of Iowa! In our student clinic, we simulate what it is like to work in a professional massage clinic. This is far better than individual scholarships as all of our students benefit from this unique opportunity.

Read graduate testimonials about attending Carlson College of Massage Therapy and working as a therapist in the field of massage.

We offer a Full Time program or Part Time program to best meet your needs. Both programs include a variety of classes to make our graduates well rounded therapists.

Thank you for taking the time to consider CCMT for your massage therapy education. Email carlsoncollege@carlsoncollege.com or call 319-462-3402 if you have any questions. We are here to help!

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.
