First semester students receive and pay for 8 spiritual counseling sessions from our in-house advisor team to prepare them for their role as spiritual counselors. During this time, students will benefit from learning and experiencing a comprehensive spiritual inquiry process that will anchor their skills and enhance their preparedness. Following the first semester, ISC students will be invited to choose from a diverse pool of experienced counselors and supervisors who have agreed to support the ISC students by offering their services at a special rate of $75 per session for counseling and $75 per session for supervision.
