The Massage Therapy Program at LCC

The cost for the program for Fall 2022 through Summer 2023 for an in-district student is $9,450. This cost includes all tuition, course fees, application fees, textbooks, supplies, etc. Financial aid may be available to help with program costs. LCC's Financial Aid office can help navigate this. The Financial Aid office also has information about other state and federal tuition aid programs including Michigan Reconnect, a program that pays for tuition for people 25 years and older without a degree. Additionally, LCC offers a variety of awards and scholarships for students. Finally, financial aid opportunities are also available through some massage organizations including American Massage Therapy Association Student Scholarship and Imagine American Foundation.
