Once I am accepted, how much do I have to put down to save my seat?

Once you are accepted into an NMETC program, you must put down a $800 deposit to save your seat. The payment goes towards your tuition and is 100% refundable up until the first day of class.

How does NMETC in-house financing work?

We are proud to offer in-house financing to all of our students.

After your initial deposit is made to secure your seat, you will have until the start of classes to make any additional payments. If you choose not to pay in full, two weeks before classes begin, we will set up a finance agreement for the remaining balance of your tuition.

A one-time 8% financing fee will be added to the balance.

The balance and the finance fee are then divided into monthly payments. The more money you put down before classes start, the lower your payments will be. Your payments will then be auto-debited each month.

The max number of monthly payments allowed for EMT students is 4.
