How to Pay for School

Out of pocket/up front

Paying for the tuition out of pocket/up front is the way that most students go. After being accepted, the lab fee payment of $3,000 would be due. After being accepted, you will have up to 30 days before your preferred class to pay the rest of the amount due. When students go this route, they receive a personal loan from their bank or credit unions and pay via the loan. 

Payment plan with L.I.N.E.

A payment plan directly with Linemen Institute of the North East is also an option but is very situational based. If approved, students would need to pay 50% of full tuition and fees. Housing is not included in the payment plan (if applicable). The remaining balance is split into 4-5 payments over the course of the term. The balance must be paid off by graduation. Please call the office.


L.I.N.E. has partnered with Meritize for your student loan needs.  With a loan from Meritize, you can improve your loan terms by sharing your academic profile. Providing your transcript – whether high school, partial or full college, or previous skills-based school experience – lets Meritize use your learning history to enhance your credit evaluation and improve your loan options.
