Net Price Calculator

In accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) of 2008, all Title IV post-secondary institutions are required to post a Net Price Calculator to their school’s website in order to help prospective students estimate total cost and financial assistance. However, under the HEOA, institutions that do not enroll first-time, full-time degree-seeking students are not required to have a Net Price Calculator.

At this time, Birthingway’s Title IV eligible programs, our Midwifery and Lactation Consultation (pathway 2) programs, do not enroll any first-time students as all students in these program are required to complete college-level prerequisite courses prior to acceptance.

While we do not have a Net Price Calculator, we are eager to help you estimate the potential cost to attend. Please contact our Financial Aid Officer for more assistance.

Preferred Lender Arrangements

Birthingway will gladly work with students who are interested in financing their education with the support of private student loans. The college maintains a Preferred Lender List and borrowing information on our financial aid page.

To receive more information about private loans, please contact Birthingway’s Financial Aid Officer.
