*The Institute requires a non-refundable enrollment fee of $25.00 for all degree programs.
Any degree Program student may choose to enroll using the *Institute's interest-free monthly payment option. This option allows the student to begin his/her degree studies without making one full-price payment. The initial payment is 10% of the total tuition price. This option requires the use of a valid debit/credit card to be charged automatically at 30-day intervals. (For example, an enrolling student making an initial payment on June 1st, would be charged again on July 1st, and so on until their account is paid in full). Books and materials are shipped to the student after each payment is confirmed. For this option, students should choose the "Payment Plan" option when enrolling (below).

*The Interest-free monthly payment option represents a contractual agreement between the American Institute of Metaphysics and the student. As such, students will be charged a $50 fee for any declined card processing attempt. This fee and the student's normal monthly tuition fee must be paid in full before subsequent texts and materials can be shipped.


For all students using the interest-free monthly tuition payment option...

Students who miss two or more monthly payments will be removed from their program until payments have been brought current in addition to a $75.00 reinstatement fee.
