Deferred Tuition Agreement (ISA)
Don’t pay while learning, pay after you get hired. ISA is a legal contract between a student and Clarusway. Leif is our school’s ISA Program Manager.
Deferred Tuition Agreement (ISA) Overview
An ISA is a legal contract between a student and Clarusway. ISAs are not a form of debt, nor are they a loan. They have no interest rate or principal balance. The ISA contract outlines that in exchange for the provision of an education to a student, said student agrees to pay a fixed percentage of their income for a fixed duration of time. Payment occurs when the student is employed and earning above a predetermined minimum salary. ISA contracts have Payment Caps that clearly indicate the most a student would pay given the terms of their ISA contract.

Key Takeaways About ISA
- Instead of paying tuition upfront, enrolled students may choose to sign an ISA.
- An ISA is a legally binding agreement representing a responsibility to pay Clarusway a portion of future income.
- ISAs are not a form of debt, nor are they a loan. They have no interest rate or principal balance.
- Students who elect the ISA option agree to pay 9.9% of post-Clarusway gross income (i.e., before taxes) with 24 monthly payments, but only when students are earning equal to or more than $40,000 per year.
- The ISA option is capped at a maximum of $25,000.
- If the student has earned less than $40,000 for a total of 60 months after completing the Clarusway program, their ISA is cancelled, regardless of amount paid to date.
- If students get a job before graduation, they are not considered withdrawn and their ISA will be due in full.
