Payment & Financial Aid
Go to our company web site and register for a payment plan. Prices do increase over time, so the earlier you pay a deposit, the sooner you lock in a price.
About Financial Aid
Financial aid may be available for you to pay for all or part of your program. It comes in the form of grants, loans and scholarships. Many students qualify for financial aid.
Students who wish to use financial aid MUST begin the process early in order to allow enough time for everything to get processed. Students who are not currently enrolled at Normandale must transfer financial aid to Normandale.
