The Massage Therapy Program at LCC

For the 2024-2025 academic year, the estimated cost for an in-district student to complete the Massage program is $8,289. Please refer to the Massage Therapy cost estimator sheet for in-state, out-of-state, and international tuition rates. To verify residency status, please check the Registrar’s Residency page. 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 21 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.
