Tuition and other costs are outlined below


Tuition for the 750-hour program is $13,750. Tuition is subject to change.

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 when securing your spot in the program.  Payments begin the month before the program begins. Please see detailed payment plan options below: 

The payment plan is managed by CRI unless the student misses a payment or defaults on the payments. If a payment is missed or a student defaults on the payment plan, the account is referred to a debt management agency and interest is added to the balance.

We do not accept any federal financial aid such as FAFSA.   We are contracted 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 specific criteria of their own.

Students often ask about grants. There are many grants available but Columbia River Institute does not recommend any particular grant option and does not assist students in acquiring grants.
