Financial Aid Options

TMI is a non-credit/non-degree seeking program.  Federal financial aid (i.e. student loans, GI Bill funding, etc.) WILL NOT cover the tuition and fees of our program.  TMI does not offer program financial aid, but we do offer payment plans.  Additionally, we can accept aid on your behalf from third parties.  Recent candidates have used funds provided by their school districts, local scholarship foundations, Americorps, workforce retraining funds from WIN Job Center, etc.

TMI Fee Payment Information

Both TMI 1 and TMI 2 candidates will make their payment(s) online. Instructions for accessing the payment system will be included on page two of each TMI 1 and TMI 2 acceptance letter.
