Tuition Financing Options 

At Dakota Barber Academy, we’re committed to helping you turn your barbering dreams into reality. We understand one of the biggest decision-making factors that goes into attending barber school is whether or not you’re able to afford the cost of tuition. The cost of our tuition is broken down below. 

Tuition (1500 hours): $10,900
Tool Kit Fee $700
Application Fee: $50 (non-refundable)

TOTAL: $11,650 

We have several financing options to help get you started. For those who qualify private financing through one of our partners, United Credit or Meritize, is also available and you can easily apply below. 

We also offer a discounted tuition option for students who elect to pay off their tuition prior to completion of their hours (Full-time Enrollment Short Term Financing). There is an additional $1000 savings for students who elect to pay tuition in cash as well.

Examples of our payment plan options can be found below.  We are the only barber school in North Dakota that offers a deferred tuition financing option which allows students the opportunity to pay the bulk of their tuition after graduation (limitations apply). We are currently not accepting financial aid but do have community partners where financial assistance may be available. Reach out and speak to our admissions director for more information. Don't delay, start today!
