Students who acquire large debts putting themselves through school are unlikely to think about changing society. When you trap people in a system of debt, they can't afford the time to think. Tuition fee increases are a disciplinary technique, and by the time students graduate, they are not only loaded with debt, but have also internalized the disciplinarian culture. This makes them efficient components of the consumer economy. (Noam Chomsky)
Making it Work: Tuition Fees & More
At ITM, we are about CHANGE-MAKING. Encouraging our community members to take risks, to follow their dreams and passions and to be brave and courageous enough to have faith in their pursuit of making a meaningful, sustainable life, while severing others and our earth. For this reason, we do our best to make the study of Traditional Medicine available and accessible to as many people as possible. Inspired by the above quote we have created the most affordable tuition fees in Eastern Medicine available anywhere in North America. We offer flexible payment plans, scholarships and affordable tuition fees suitable for students who are not eligible for funding or who have other financial obligations. We offer work-community service exchanges so that students can pursue their studies, while feeling good about contributing to the overall health and wellness of their community.
