How to Pay Tuition After You’re Hired

Through Income Share Agreements (ISAs) and Retail Installment Contracts (RICs), all we require is an upfront deposit of $100 – you pay the rest once you’re employed and you’ve landed a job that reaches a certain salary threshold.

Income Share Agreement

Once you land a job making a salary of at least $60k a year, you’ll begin paying your tuition. Even if you get a job right away, your payments won’t start until three months after you graduate.

Income Share Agreements (ISAs) are not available to students residing in Alabama, California, Iowa, South Carolina, and Washington.

Retail Installment Contract

Once you land a job making a salary of $50k a year, you’ll begin paying your tuition. Even if you get a job right away, your payments won’t start until three months after you graduate.

Retail Installment Contracts are available to students residing in California and Washington only. If you live in another U.S. state, explore our Income Share Agreement options.
