Here are a couple of stories about how students paid back their loans:

Many students are concerned about tuition, payments, loans, and their financial future.

Let me tell you a story about some past students. Both of these 2 students signed up for a payment plan that amounted to a down payment and a payment amount of about $7000. One was a man & one a woman. They both had set themselves up for a 2 year payment plan. That's about $280 per month payment. However, BOTH of them finished school & their situation changed for the better right away. This is common for our students because of what we do & teach here. The guy went straight to work and took as many jobs as he could (common in Colorado ski towns). He paid off the entire $7000 plus the interest in only 6 months & was DONE! The woman did the same, and when her parents saw that she was serious, they helped too! She also paid off the entire $7000 plus the interest in only 6 months & was DONE!

Let me give you some numbers to think about. If you go to a school that is worth going to AND they give federal loans, it could look like this: They will probably charge at least $10,000 in tuition if not more. (Sure, you could go to school for less, but in the long run, it will cost you way more.) If you set up a 10 year federal student loan, the payments will be low, but the overall cost of tuition will be $14000 or more. You will be locked into this payment for a long time. If you do what the 2 people above did, you will have a total tuition cost of less than $8500. If you stretched it out to 2 years after school, it would be under $9500. Now, we can keep our tuition lower because we do not have federal loans. Our classes will be smaller, more advanced, and more fun!

Loan Options:

- Loans from friends or relatives are usually very flexible, have low or no interest rates, and are easy for some people to arrange. They, however, are not available to everyone. Check these out first!

- Banks or Credit Unions: provide loans at better rates than some places. Banks have personal loans available at rates based on your credit rating. They will provide you with a set payment plan. Having a cosigner with a good credit rating will increase your chances of getting a bank loan. Your best opportunities will be with a bank that you or a cosigner has a relationship with.

- Your local bank or Credit Union: Apply in person.

- Scholarships & Financial Aid: The Associated Massage & Bodywork Professionals have some links on this web site for you to research. Many options do not apply to all schools, so talk with us about this. http://www.massagetherapy.com/careers/rightprogram.php

CALL US FOR MORE DETAILS!! - It is always best to discuss this with us to get the clearest picture of the best way for us to help you!!

- Loan Options: We have several loan options for students that may work for you if the things listed here do not, please call us for information on these.

- Credit cards may have a higher interest rate, but are more flexible with minimum payments. They also often offer low interest rates for up to a year when you transfer your balance to a new card. They are also the easiest way to for some people to get a loan.

- Get Creative: We also know of people who have raised money for their education in a "futures" sort of way. They would sell massages in the future to clients, friends, family, etc. at a discounted rate (less than the going rate for professional massage therapy in their location) if purchased before the student completed school.

- Talk to Us !: Financing opportunities and payment plans change often. Call and ask us for the current information that we have. When we work together, we can find a way that works for you!

Remember, you can earn from $40 to $130 or more per massage in many places.

We also suggest you keep in mind a few simple figures when you are considering how you will be paying back your loans & payment plans. 

Check out these examples:

Massage Therapy - $40 per hour (a low average)

Massage Therapy - $40 per hour (a low average)

Borrowed for education - $7,000

Borrowed for education - $8,000

Paid back in massages = 175 massages

Paid back in massages = 200 massages

Paid back in 1 year = 3.5 massages / week

Paid back in 1 year = 4 massages per week

Paid back in 1.5 years = 2.33 massages / week

Paid back in 1.5 years = 2.66 massages / week
