Tuition & Fees

It Works CNA/GNA Tuition & Fees

It Works is not a "free school" and we do not offer "financial aid," but we do have several pay-as-you-go no-interest payment plans. If you are not in a position to pay our tuition and fees right now, maybe there is someone that believes in what you want to do with your life and how you want to get there. It can't hurt to ask.

It Works is not a Title IV school, therefore we do not offer federal financial aid. We do not have a FAFSA Federal School Code and we do not qualify for Pell Grants. Even if you previously qualified for financial aid with another school, you can not use it to pay It Works' tuition and fees. However, we do offer several pay-as-you-go no-interest plans. If we do not offer a plan that works for you, please give us a call at (410) 626-0200 and tell us what you have in mind. We can not discount our tuition or honor requests that create sizable past due balances during the class or after graduation.

At It Works, you will only be in school for two or three times each week for 9-13 weeks. We have classes for just about everyone's schedule. In a matter of months, you can complete our CNA/GNA class, get your licenses and be ready to start work. All this in just a fraction of the time and without those expensive Title IV school programs. Plus, you won't risk being left with a big school loan. That's why "It Works!"

We accept all forms of payment.
