Financing Options

The Academy of Excellence understands that making a decision to go to school has to involve sound financial planning and a thorough process of investigating alternative resources that may be available. We encourage students to look at all options to ensure that they can assume the financial obligations before they commit to a vocational program.
The Academy of Excellence works with each potential student to choose the best payment option that will ensure that a student starts and most importantly successfully completes the training journey. Exploring personal, family and alternative sources ensures that you decrease the risk of encountering financial obstacles during your studies.

For your convenience we accept debit, visa, master card, cheques, bank drafts or cash. An official receipt of payment is always provided at the time of payment.
