The full tuition investment for the IFCI training and certification program is $5,000, with several scholarships available (details below).
Tuition includes full enrollment, all required course materials, certification exam, one-on-one coaching, and mentoring during the 16-week program. You will also receive a website created for your new coaching business from one of our custom templates and assistance in obtaining your first clients.
Financial Aid & Scholarships
The Institute offers three primary scholarships:
- The Sherri Little Memorial Scholarship is a $1,000 scholarship available to all students enrolling in the program. You may apply for this scholarship online.
- Students living outside the United States may also qualify for a $500 international student scholarship. Please speak with your Student Advisor during your Admissions Interview to see if you qualify.
- The Spirit of Excellence Debbi Bricco Memorial Scholarship is a $2,000 scholarship given to the top student in each graduating class. This scholarship is open to students who have completed all course requirements and is awarded based on class leadership, peer-to-peer coaching reviews, helpfulness to peers, final exam, and final interview scores.
At this time, we cannot process any other forms of financial aid.
In order to secure a place in the program, applicants who accept the offer of admission must submit the required acceptance deposit of $500. This non-refundable deposit may be made by check or credit card and will be applied to the program tuition. Please speak with your Student Advisor about tuition payment options.
Students who fail to meet the payment deadlines in their payment plan are restricted from participating in the program until all outstanding financial obligations to the Institute are met.
IFCI does not issue refunds because we only accept students who have a clear commitment to completing their training and certification. We can’t put our full faith in your success as a student while also leaving space for you to quit on yourself and your dreams. Our no refund policy is a clear way of saying right from the start that neither of us are willing to accept failure as an option.
We also recognize that the majority of our students are living with fibromyalgia. Should your illness or other circumstances in your life interfere with you completing your course, you may request a one-time transfer of your registration to another class. Requests are not guaranteed to be granted and are reviewed on a case by case basis.
