Tuition Fees, Policies and Procedures

  (Part one of two)

Counseling marriage and individuals


A  $75 enrollment fee is required which must accompany the Enrollment Agreement. This is refundable only if the candidate is not accepted into the program for lack of qualifications.

The tuition for all Phase I and Phase II courses is currently $292 per course. There is a $5 processing fee per course (includes online course) plus actual shipping cost added to each order.

The tuition for all advanced courses is currently $193 per course. There is a $5 processing fee per course plus actual shipping cost added to each order.

Candidates are expected to provide a valid credit card information so the tuition can be processed as each course is shipped.

In addition to the tuition, the candidate will be assigned to a clinical supervisor in which may be in his or her geographical area. When assigned, the candidate is required to pay the supervisor directly. The fee for clinical supervision is $50 per hour for a required minimum of six (6) hours.


The course tuition and clinical supervision fees do not include the cost of the A.P.S. reports. The candidate’s cost for the A.P.S. reports is currently $30 each. The fee for the A.P.S. reports may be passed on to the person being tested. Charging for the A.P.S. report is left to the discretion of the candidate.

Many counselors charge from $150 to $300 for comparable reports, therefore requiring $50 to $85 for an A.P.S. report is very reasonable.

If you are working toward a degree, the matriculation and transfer fees for a degree must be paid after all requirements have been fulfilled. The matriculation and transfer fees for a Bachelors degree $1,500 and the fees for an M.A. are $1,500. The fees for a Doctorate are also $1,500.
