Scholarship Options

Partial scholarships may be available to individuals currently employed by a nonprofit organization located in the greater Houston area.

Please complete the appropriate section of the LINE application if you would like to be considered for program fees assistance. Scholarship decisions will be made by the admittance committee and awarded recipients will be notified at the same time of their admissions decision.


Alternative Payment Options

Payment plan options are available by request for those who do not qualify for the scholarship option and need additional assistance. Payment plans may also be requested to pay the remaining balance of the program fees after scholarship funds have been awarded. Payment plans will not be granted after the start of the program. Contact the program coordinator for the required forms needed to request this option.


Refund Policy

No refunds will be issued on or after the start date of the program. Fees will be refunded in full when enrollments are canceled in writing 10 business days before the program start date. For enrollment cancellations submitted in writing less than two weeks before the program start date, a 20% processing fee will be deducted from the overall refund. Scholarship awards will not be paid to recipients as cash – they will be applied to the total tuition due and are not subject to refund if enrollment is canceled.
