Tuition, Fees & Expenses

Interspiritual Counseling

Tuition: $2,500 per year

The 2018-2019 Tuition for Interspiritual Counseling is $2,500. Students are offered standard tuition payment plans of one payment, two payment or four payments due during the program year from August to June. In rare instances students can arrange other payment schedules with the Dean of Student Finance/Bursar after acceptance, providing the reasons for a variance.

Electives fee: $320

Electives are generally one weekend-day, full weekend, or multiple-evening courses offered by One Spirit. All students, both distance-learning and attending, are required to take 3 elective credits in each year of study. The electives fee includes 4 credits worth of electives.

All students are required to be in Spiritual Counseling throughout the 2 years of the ISC training. New students complete this requirement in their first semester by participating in Foundations In Spiritual Inquiry.

Foundations in Spiritual Inquiry Primer: $625 (first semester of the first year only)

During their first semester, first year students are required to take Foundations in Spiritual Inquiry, a spiritual counseling curriculum designed to support you in launching your own counseling with greater ease, confidence and skillful inquiry into matters of spirit. You are assigned a Foundations Counselor from our in-house staff and the 8 session non-refundable fee is included in your first year Tuition Plan.

Counseling & Supervision Fees : $150 per month for 4 months per semester (paid directly to providers)

During the remaining three semesters of your two years of training, you will need to be engaged in personal spiritual counseling for yourself (4 sessions per semester at $75 per session). Additionally, after the first semester of your first year, you will begin to see pro-bono Spiritual Counseling counselees; once you start working with counselees, you will need to participate in monthly supervision sessions (4 sessions per semester at $75 per session). These fees are paid directly to the providers with whom you work.

We have a diverse provider list 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. In addition, we have some providers who are able to slide their fee to $50 per session in hardship circumstances.

Graduation Fee for Second Year Students: $150

After completing the four semesters of work, graduates participate in a special commencement ceremony held in New York City’s historic Riverside Church.
