Is financial assistance available?
The West Coast College of Massage Therapy offers a program of study which is registered under the Private Training Institution Branch; therefore financial assistance may be available to eligible students. To apply for student aid, go to www.studentaidbc.ca.
What is the cost of tuition?
The cost of completing the RMT training program is $29,995.00
Do you have campus tours?
Yes. Tours of the New Westminster campus can be booked by appointment by contacting Admissions at:
604-520-1844 ext 232 or 1-888-449-2242 ext 232
or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
We also hold Information Sessions and offer “Student for a Day” programs for prospective students wanting to explore a career in massage therapy. High school students can arrange to attend “Student for a Day” by having their school counselor contact WCCMT admissions.
Is there a charge for the Student for a Day?
No, this program is free and so is our Admissions Open Houses. These are available to students investigating a career in massage therapy who wish to experience first-hand what WCCMT has to offer.
What are your prerequisites?
Applicants must have a minimum of high school graduation. Applicants are required to have successfully completed a three-day Introduction to Massage Program offered at WCCMT. Please see our Prerequisite Requirements page for the full list.
How can I determine if a course I have taken elsewhere will meet the prerequisite requirements at WCCMT?
If you are uncertain whether your course meets WCCMT requirements, please provide us with a copy of your transcripts and a description (course outline) of the course or courses for which you are seeking equivalency. If necessary we will conduct a prior learning assessment to determine which courses may be transferable. There is a $250 fee for this service.
Is there a maximum class size?
Our maximum class size is 50 students at any given time.
What if there are more than 50 applicants for a given intake?
We deal with applications on a first come, first serve basis. The first 50 students to complete their application and their Educational Interview, may be offered a seat in the program. Once the applicant has reviewed the Student Manual containing all college policies, has signed off on the Term 1 contracts and has paid the enrollment fee of $2,500.00, then and only then, will a seat be guaranteed in the program. Any additional applicants above and beyond the 50 maximum will be given first priority in the next intake.
