  • Scholarships

    To obtain a private and civic scholarships, consult with local foundations and civic organizations (eg., Rotary, Kiwanis Club, Quota American Business Women's Association). Area businesses and industries sometimes have scholarship programs for children of employees. Likewise, local beauty pageants and essay contests often award scholarships. For those students still in high school, check with your guidance counselors for possible options in your area.
  • Loans

    There are several loan options available to prospective students. Financial institution such as banks and credit unions provide student loans. Loan applications are to be made prior to the start of class as last minute loan applications delay a student's access to funds intended for tuition and books.



  • Refund Policies

    The Institute employs a fair and equitable refund policy that complies with federal, state, and agency guidelines for the return of unused tuition due to class cancellation, student withdrawal or expulsion, as required by the Louisiana State Board of Regents.

    All tuition fees paid in advance are 100% refundable before the commencement of class. For students who withdraw after the commencement of classes, the following rules will apply:

    • During the first week of class, 90% of the total tuition fees will be refunded, less the $50 registration fee, thereafter;
    • During the 2nd, 3rd and 4th weeks of class, 75% of the total tuition fees will be refunded, less the $50 registration fee, thereafter;
    • During the first 25% of class, 55% of the total tuition fees will be refunded, less the $50 registration fee, thereafter;
    • During the second 25% of class, 30% of the total tuition fees will be refunded, less the $50 registration fee, thereafter;
    • During the third and fourth 25% of class, no refund will be made and the student will be held responsible for the entire tuition fee.

    For calculating refunds, the above percentages are based upon the scheduled clock hours beginning the 1st day of class. For programs exceeding one year in length, 100% of the stated course price attributable to the period beyond the 1st year will be refunded in full, if the student withdraws during the prior period. Please note that books may not be returned for a refund. However, any unused book fees may be refunded to the student. Furthermore, account setup fees, billing and bookkeeping fees are non-refundable.

    All refund requests must be submitted in writing to the Institute. Refunds will be issued within thirty days of the receipt of request. Refund checks are submitted within 30 days payable to the student and not a 3rd party.
  • Personal Check Policy

    The Institute accepts checks; we do not accept two-party or post-dated checks. Please make all checks payable to: Louisiana Institute of Massage Therapy, La Institute, or L.I.M.T.. If a check is returned to the Institute, for whatever reason, an NSF charge will be assessed. This charge will be the maximum amount allowed by law. The student has 10 days after receiving notice to make reimbursements. Failure to comply in a timely manner may result in the Institute filing the check for collection with the local District Attorney’s Office. Once a check has been returned, the Institute will no longer accept checks from that student.
