Pay your tuition
Two weeks after you are registered for classes, we’ll send you a Tuition Cost and Information Letter via Adobe Sign, sent to your Birthwise email. This shows your tuition and fees due for the semester. This sheet will reflect any financial aid you receive, including federal student aid and scholarships.
Please note: adding or dropping classes may impact your eligibility for financial aid and your tuition bill. If your tuition cost information changes, we will issue you a new letter.
Your tuition payment is due in full by one week before classes begin. Late payments will be charged a $40 late fee.
You can pay your tuition by credit card online or by mailing us a check, made payable to Birthwise Midwifery School to 24 S. High St., Bridgton, ME 04009.
We offer payment plans by request. Requests for a payment plan need to be made before the first day of class.
Your tuition bill can be broken into a maximum of 3 equal payments, spread evenly between the tuition payment deadline (one week before classes begin) and the 60% mark of the semester.
Payment plan installments incur a $10/payment fee that must be paid when the installment is paid. All tuition for the semester must be paid in full by the 60% point of the semester.
Please email Katie Krebs at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a payment plan.
Birthwise offers two types of scholarships: one for Midwives of Color and one for Underserved Communities.Learn About Scholarships
