Does the makeup academy offer a payment plan?

Yes. After the required deposit, we will work with you to structure a plan and contract where payments are made monthly (for programs).* Terms vary.

Payment plans have an administration fee. The fee is 6% of the cost for a program.*

Loan payments have a 5-day grace period before a $10 late fee is assessed daily. The late fee will not exceed the monthly late charge of $100. Breach of contract will bring about legal action. The student will be responsible for tuition, late fees and legal fees.

*Payment plans are available for Career Enhancements as well. An administrative fee of $150 will apply.

Are there any incentives if I pay in full?

At times we offer a discount for payment in full. Check with your admissions advisor for details.

What is the makeup academy acceptance policy?

The Multimedia Makeup Academy is a non-discriminatory institution. We do not deny your enrollment due to religion, race, color, national origin, age, sex, weight, height, marital status, gender, gender identity, employment, or housing.

Criteria for acceptance include a GED or High School Diploma and Picture ID. U.S. residents (citizens and green card holders) must have a social security card. Non-residents should have appropriate documentation to study in the United States.

Upon meeting these criteria, you are accepted or denied based primarily on your essay. We also consider your past educational and work experience.

What happens if I’m accepted?

An Admissions Advisor will call and schedule an enrollment appointment. During the appointment we will discuss your goals and then review the class requirements, class schedule, and tuition options to achieve them. You will leave with your own individualized academic plan that is the most time- and cost-effective approach to pursue your dreams.

You will also be scheduled for a mandatory Student Orientation prior to the start of classes.

What happens at Student Orientation?

It’s great fun! You’ll meet other students and MMA Instructor Artists and staff. We’ll take you through student expectations and school policies. Most importantly, you will be introduced to the various avenues of academy support that will lead to your educational success.

Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled time. Orientation will begin promptly.

When must I pay for classes?

A minimum deposit of $1,500 is due at enrollment for programs of study.

The balance of the tuition is due in full before the start of class, unless other arrangements have been made.

MMA accepts cash, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express, money order, cashier’s check or personal check (please make checks payable to Multimedia Makeup Academy).
If a check is returned, a cash payment is due within five business days. The returned check fee is $40.

Are there any other costs?

The program pricing is all inclusive: tuition, kits, class and print materials, online course access, uniform, and technology usage.

You will need to replenish items in your kit on your own. You are encouraged to use your 20% discount in the school store!

Career Enhancement classes and a la carte electives may require the purchase of additional materials.

NOTE: A $40 kit rush fee may be assessed to students who register less than 2 weeks from their first day of class.

What is your refund policy?

There are no refunds.

Students forfeit all deposits and payments received if they do not pay in full two weeks prior to the scheduled class date.

Deposits and prepaid tuitions may be used for future class dates. Should the credit be used toward a transfer or to reschedule, a $150 administration fee will be applied. Student deposits and credits have an expiration date of one year from original enrollment.

What if I suffer a hardship?

We will consider sudden hardship, medical emergency, maternity, or family grievance for a temporary leave of absence. However, this does not allow for disruption of loan repayment unless authorized by the MMA. Payments are expected to continue.

Does MMA provide extracurricular activities outside the academic program?

During the year we often identify and stage specialty classes that keep us on the cutting edge of new innovations in makeup artistry. It’s part of why we are known for graduating premier professionals.

There is a cost. Students can make payments towards specialty classes based on a non-refundable deposit and $50 finance fee. Payment in full must be made 2-4 weeks prior to the event date or you forfeit both your deposit and reservation. Students cannot pay the balance the day of the event.

Any other activities?

Yes, of course! We routinely host special events – fun stuff – since we’re family. These are free to all students.
