Mindfulness Teacher Training Program (MTTP) Tuition Policy

Tuition payments

Upon admission to the Mindfulness Teacher Training Program (MTTP), a tuition deposit is due within 30 days. This saves your place in the program and covers preliminary administrative costs.

The balance of the tuition can be paid in 1 of 3 ways:

  1. Pay in full by credit card
  2. Pay with a 10-month, interest-free payment plan
  3. Pay in full by cash or check (at a 3% discount)

Monthly payment plans are set up through the Partial.ly service, a 3rd party online payment plan service. 

The tuition balance must be paid or payment plan opened by August 31st of the training year.

Early Withdrawal and Refunds

In the event that an MTTP student withdraws from the program, a tuition reduction (or refund) will be determined based on the percentage of months the student has participated in the 9 month training period. More details below.

Deposit is Non-Refundable - Mindfulness Northwest will retain the $500 tuition deposit if an enrolled student withdraws from the program prior to the Opening Retreat.

Student withdrawal after training has begun - Mindfulness Northwest retains a percentage of the full tuition based on withdrawal date (time spent in the training program), as indicated in Table 1 below.

Funds paid in excess of the amount due to Mindfulness Northwest will be refunded. Students paying with payment plans will continue making payments until the amount due has been paid.

Any refund will be paid within 30 calendar days of the student’s official withdrawal date.

Determining withdrawal date - A student's official withdrawal date is determined by one of the following (at the discretion of Mindfulness Northwest):

  1. Date the Program Director receives notice of the student’s intention to discontinue the training program
  2. Date student is given notice of termination for a violation of a published program policy which provides for termination
  3. Date after which a student fails to attend training meetings or classes for 14 calendar days without notifying program staff
