Tuition and Fees

Financing a quality education can be a challenge. Fortunately, at Adler, you don't have to face this challenge alone. Our course schedule allows most of our students to continue to work full-time during school. Many Adler students also qualify for federal or privately funded student loans. Our staff will work with you to establish a plan for financing your Adler education.

Tuition and fees should be paid (in US dollars only) in full by the 1st business day of the session. Payment in full can be accomplished by applying any combination of the following:

  1. Cash, check or credit card
  2. Approved loan documents
  3. An approved tuition and fee waiver
  4. A signed agreement from an employer or state/local agency to cover a specific dollar amount
  5. An approved payment plan - There is a $20 charge per term to participate in a payment plan. You will need to pay at least ¼ of your tuition and fees for the term on or before the start date of the term. You would also need to provide a signed agreement to pay the balance in no more than three payments over the course of the class schedule for the current term.
