The cost of tuition is $1,000 per unit.
Pine Rest offers Clinical Pastoral Education in collaboration with denominations, churches, hospitals and seminaries. Students who are not able to pay the full cost of the education are encouraged to seek financial assistance from others ( i.e. congregation, employer, denomination, seminary and others) to put together a financial assistance package. For those who need further assistance, need-based scholarships are available from Pine Rest.
A non-refundable application fee of $75.00 is submitted with the application. Pine Rest can provide assistance and guidance for financial support options. Each student will have their own unique sources of support. Once accepted into the program, an application for a Pine Rest scholarship may be requested.
For students who use their current ministry setting as their clinical site, the institution is asked to contribute $1,800 toward the total cost of the CPE program. These institutions or congregations are receiving the benefit of the student’s learning in terms of increased quality of care.
