Payment Options

It is the goal of the duCret School of the Arts to make enrollment possible for qualified students whose personal financial resources might not otherwise enable them to attend. Those choosing more than three classes per semester can inquire about a payment plan. duCret offers three payment plans to be discussed at your scheduled appointment. Please note: All payment options are made through arrangements with the Bursar. 

Eligibility for Payment Plans

To receive aid from the student aid programs, you must meet all of the following criteria:

• have financial need, except for some loan programs
• have a high school diploma or a General Education Development (GED) Certificate
• be enrolled or accepted for enrollment as a regular student working toward a Certificate
• be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen with a valid social security number
• register (or have registered) with Selective Service if you are a male between the ages of 18 and 25
• make satisfactory academic progress according to duCret School of the Arts standards
• must not be in default on a previously awarded student loan

Month to Month Plan
A processing fee of $10 will be charged each month in addition to the divided tuition rate. All tuition and fees must be paid in full by the end of each semester. 

Half and Half Plan
The tuition is divided in half. One payment is taken up front before the start of class and one payment is expected mid-semester.
