Credit Card

You know the saying: Plastic is fantastic. If self-financing is an option, you can put it on your credit card and pay off your training on your timeframe.

Payment Plans

No matter your credit score or credit history, we can help you find a financing solution.* CareerStep has partnered with Monterey Financial to secure a financing option for learners with low or no credit.

*Payment plan financing is not available for the Refresher and Recharge courses, EKG Technician, Phlebotomy Technician, Microsoft Office courses, or textbooks (when purchased separately from a training program). Payment for these purchases is due in full at the time of purchase.
