Help with Funding
Many corporations will reimburse for part or all of the program fees. Check with your Human Resources office. Please note that the 20-month program spans three calendar years, which is advantageous in cases where students are participating in employer-sponsored educational assistance plans that have maximum amounts payable within a single calendar year.
