      EI Introduces Time-Payment Option for Distance Learning Courses

      Lansing, Michigan, August 2010 - The American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute (EI) has introduced a time payment option for its Distance Learning program. Students who enroll in three or more courses can choose to pay over several months rather than paying their complete enrollment fee upfront.

      With this option, students pay $180 for their first course (add an additional $45 if enrolling for the first time), and then make three monthly payments of $60 for each additional course. When EI receives the third installment, the student receives the next course in their program. Students receive monthly reminders to keep their payments on track.

      Under this new payment option, students can take 13 months to pay for a five-course Area of Specialization, 22 months to pay for the eight-course Hospitality Operations Certificate, and nearly three years to pay for the 12-course diploma program. Plus, upon enrollment, the student's payment schedule is locked in, even if EI increases prices midway through the program.

      For more information, call Karen Flickinger, Distance Learning Manager, at 800-390-8399 or 517-372-8800, or e-mail kflickinger@ahla.com.
