Enroll Now – New Students

Choose between 6 programs that best fit your career goals – Basic, Intermediate, Newborn Care, Advanced, Specialist or Professional. If needed, we have a $299 payment plan (see below).

Need a Payment Plan?

We offer a payment plan that allows you to purchase each program individually. This gives you the flexibility to take classes when it fits your budget. To enroll:

1. Select the Basic program and pay the tuition and fees.

2. When you are ready, you can come back to this page and enroll in the Intermediate program. You must complete Basic, then Intermediate, then Advanced and Specialist before enrolling in the Professional program.

3. Check your email for a link to log into your student account. You should use the same login if you are a returning student.

4. Sign and complete the enrollment agreement. When the enrollment agreement and government identification is submitted, the Administrative staff will be notified to confirm the prerequisite levels are complete. You will be notified when the program is available to begin, usually within 2 business days. You will not be able to immediately start the program as the Administrators must confirm the pre-requisite levels have been completed before releasing the classes into your student account.

Enroll in Payment Plan – Returning Students

You must complete these programs in order. You will not be permitted to take Intermediate without first completing Basic. You cannot take Professional until you have completed Basic, Intermediate, Advanced and Specialist. We do not have a payment plan for the Newborn and Infant program.

Online Program Cancellation and Refund Policy

Should a student’s enrollment be terminated or canceled for any reason, all refunds will be made according to the following:

Cancellation requires the submission of Form 108 by electronic mail to info@usnannyinstitute.com or by termination. If the Nanny Institute does not accept the student or the student does not start any classes and cancels within (3) business days after making payment and signing the enrollment agreement, 100% of tuition (less the $50 non-refundable enrollment fee) will be refunded. Cancellation after enrollment through 25% of the program will result in a Pro Rata refund.

Program completion is computed on the number of clock hours of courses completed to the total program clocks hours or the number of days since enrollment to the total number of days allocated to complete the program, whichever is greater. Canceling after completing more than 25% of the program (courses and/or time allocated) will result in no refund. Refunds will be made within 30 days of termination of the student’s enrollment or receipt of Cancellation Notice (Form 108) from the student.

Funding Sources and Tax Deductions

While businesses can offer payment programs, discounts and sales, the Nanny Institute is a career college and adheres to the Department of Education requirements. Licensed post-secondary schools must comply with 6E-1.0032(7), F.A.C which states, “Tuition or fee discounts are not permissible.”

The Nanny Institute offers Enroll As You Go which allows you to make payments over time by purchasing each level separately. This allows students to pay for 10 hours of class at a time. The Nanny Institute also offers scholarships, when available.

Nanny Institute programs are not eligible for federal education loans (financial aid). Students are not able to submit FAFSA forms for the Nanny Institute programs. Nanny Institute tuition and fees may be tax deductible if the course is sufficiently connected to employment activities.
