FAQs About Our Institute

…Get your questions answered

What happens if I can’t take some scheduled classes?

All you have to do is wait until the class you missed comes around again! You have up to three years to complete a program from the date you started.

Can I take classes out of order, or maybe combine two years into one?

Yes, but this depends on the program. The first six Therapeutic Bodywork classes and their labs are taken in order, and there are prerequisites for some classes in all programs. Also, all classes are not necessarily offered at all times, so working carefully with the schedule is very important. Often, students are able to join the natural health program in the middle of the year or even take classes in two educational programs at the same time (if scheduling permits).

Does NITE offer any scholarships or financial assistance?

We are happy to offer a payment plan, and we accept credit cards, which has helped many students. Additionally, we assist many students through MichiganWorks!, Michigan Rehabilitation, Veteran’s Affairs and other similar organizations. Applications and information are available at the administrative office.

If I already have a massage therapy diploma, do I have to take all of the NITE beginning classes?

This will be considered on an individual basis by the Director of Education.

I already have my own massage table; can I get credited for that?

Yes, there is a $500 credit applied to your tuition balance.

What do I have to supply?

You will be required to bring note-taking materials, highlighters and pocket folders for turning in homework, and in the case of the massage therapy program, seven twin size sheet sets and three towels (one bath and two hand). Details on course requirements will be explained before classes begin.

When do I have to pay?

Initial payment of tuition should be at least 30 days before classes begin, whether that is the entire amount or the down payment. If you are on the payment plan, the monthly amount is due on the 1st of each month; there is a 10% fee charged for late payments.

Will NITE help me find a job?

We don’t provide job placement services, but we do notify qualified students and graduates whenever we are contacted about employment possibilities. Click the Jobs tab for more information.
