Federal student loans are unavailable to our students/enrollees because ADMTEI is not funded by the U.S. government.
Private loans can be obtained through a personal financial institution such as a bank or credit union. If you cannot afford to pay the full cost of tuition up front, ADMTEI recommends that you secure an outside loan.
A credential cannot be issued to anyone who has not met tuition responsibilities; this is required by the American Montessori Society (AMS). The student is liable for all costs incurred for the collection of past due accounts. Accounts requiring collection action will be liable for attorney fees and costs. We do not anticipate the student’s failure to meet the terms of her/his tuition contract.
If you are pursuing scholarship from outside sources, please remember to start your search early in the year. Most scholarships are awarded by May 1st.
