While we do not anticipate any substantial shifts in tuition costs or fee structure, we do reserve the right to adjust tuition amounts based on circumstances beyond our control. In the case of a tuition change, you will always be responsible for the amount of tuition advertised when you were admitted and began classes at the Maker Institute.
