BloomBoard offers flexible financing options that (upon approval) provide educators with the opportunity to defer payment up to three years, which could be after your salary increase goes into effect. Select your payment method below to complete payment.
Get Ready to Learn!
Within five business days of your payment or financing approval you will receive a welcome email with next steps that will include access to your account, a schedule for your cohort, and preparation activities.
If you pay for the program with a credit card, you will have an initial four-day period in which you can cancel and get a refund. Within five business days after the cancellation period, you will receive an email with instructions for accessing your program and orientation information. This information will include pre-orientation exercises to complete, dates of orientation and BloomBoard Learning Community support sessions, and an introduction to your coach.
We are excited to offer a deferred loan option. Just like with any loan, you will first need to complete an application with our partner, Climb, to get pre-approved. Once approved, Climb will provide you with various financing options and you can select the one that best meets your needs. Click the button below and you’ll be taken over to our partner site, Climb, to begin the pre-approval process.
If you applied for financing and are approved, below are the next steps and an estimated timeline:
- Once you receive your approved offer for financing, you will need to accept and follow the process as provided by the lender. This can take 1-4 days to complete.
- Once you have accepted the offer, there is a four-day rescission period that allows you to cancel the loan for any reason.
- Within five business days after the rescission period, you will receive an email with instructions for accessing your program and orientation details. This will include pre-orientation exercises to complete, dates of orientation and BloomBoard Learning Community support sessions, and an introduction to your coach.
