Columbia River Institute offers three in-house payment options. There is a carrying fee in addition to tuition. The fee depends on the payment plan chosen. Detailed payment plans can be found here. The first payment is due in order to secure your spot in the program. No additional payments are due while enrolled in the program. Payments begin the month after graduation.
There is no credit check or qualification process to be eligible for the payment plan. If you are accepted into the school, you are eligible for the payment plan.
ADDITIONAL FUNDING OPTIONS
We do not accept any federal financial aid such as FAFSA. We do work with several state agencies which may fund your education depending on qualifications. Some of these agencies include Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, WorkSource, SkillSource, and Labor and Industries. We do not contact them on your behalf and we cannot provide advice regarding your qualifications at these agencies. If you are currently working with one of these agencies, you can ask them directly if you qualify for funding. Each of these agencies has very specific criteria that Columbia River Institute is not able to speak to.
Students often ask about grants. There are many grants available but Columbia River Institute does not recommend any particular grants and does not assist students in acquiring grants.
