Frequently asked questions

Where are you located?

Dreambound is headquartered in San Francisco, CA. Our platform is open to all state approved schools based anywhere in the U.S.

How will I know if someone signed up?

After a student has signed up and paid, their information will show up in the school portal when you log in. You’ll also get an email from us saying that a new student has paid and is ready to register. 

Do other schools see my students?

Other schools do not see students that have chosen your school.

How will we know the student was sent from you?

After a student has signed up and paid, their information will be in the school portal. We’ll also send you an email letting you know that a new student has paid and is ready to register. 

If you are using your private storefront link to manage your online registrations, you will see all applications, even ones that are partially complete. You are not charged a referral fee for these students. You can see which come from your private link vs referred by Dreambound in the school portal.

Do you manage our website or social media?

Dreambound doesn’t manage schools’ websites or social media. You will have complete control of your school’s website and social media accounts. Some schools have chosen to use their storefront page as a way to display their class schedules, but Dreambound does not mandate that.

How do payments work?

Dreambound-referred students pay the first payment through Dreambound’s system. That way, you can be sure that we’re sending you only students who are serious about starting class, and you don’t have to chase down students who aren’t serious about starting. 

This payment, minus the referral fee, is sent to you after you approve the student. If a student makes additional payments through our system (ie subsequent payment plan payments), we send the full payment to you, with no fees taken.

If you are using your private storefront link to manage your online registrations, we only pass through transaction fees (2.9%, similar to other payment processors like Square and Paypal). We don’t make any money on this; we offer this as a benefit for schools.

How do you handle refunds if a student doesn’t end up enrolling, or if a student fails a background check?

In the case of a refund, let us know and we will refund the student. We are working on giving schools the ability to refund students by themselves, which should be released soon!

How long do I have to wait before receiving my payment?

Schools receive payments within 3-5 business days of approving a student. Schools using Dreambound’s online registration system receive payments within 1-2 business days.

Do we have to use your payment system?

Students pay the first payment through Dreambound’s system. That way, we send you only students who are serious about starting class. For all other payments, Dreambound offers schools the ability to use our payment system as a benefit for schools, but it isn’t required. 

Do you allow non-refundable deposits?

We do support non-refundable deposits. However, we encourage not adding a deposit to increase the likelihood that a student will take your class.

What is Dreambound?

Dreambound’s mission is to create upward mobility for America by breaking down barriers to vocational careers. For vocational schools Dreambound is a technology partner and source of new student registrations.

How much does it cost?

It is free for schools to use all of our free tools in the School Portal and to claim their listing. There are additionally no set up or subscription fees, but standard credit card processing fees do apply for payments made on the platform to schools.

Do you only work with CNA schools?

We can support virtually every program you offer. We have schools offering CNA, Licensed Caregiver, Phlebotomy and more. However for our tuition sponsorship programs are only open to CNA license.

Why should I work with Dreambound?

We've made it a no-brainer for schools to sign-up with Dreambound. There's zero cost for you to join. You get free tools to run your registration process, student enrollments and more. You also get traction from increased exposure to CNA students, and access to our array of tuition sponsorship programs.

Join the future of vocational training.
