- Travel: Some trainings are online and others are in-person. Advanced trainings are almost always in-person. Travel expenses, room and board, and any mandatory retreat center fees are not included in tuition. Students who travel to the US to take classes are responsible for obtaining all necessary travel visas and documents.
- Personal Sessions & Case Consultations: Students wishing to receive the SE Practitioner (SEP) certificate must also receive 12 hours of personal SE sessions and 18 credit hours of case consultation with approved providers. See the Graduation Requirements for more information. Fees for these credited sessions are set by individual providers and paid directly to the provider. Download and read the detailed policy.
Participants must be accepted into the program and receive their unique attendee link to register and pay. Use your unique attendee link provided in your acceptance or invitation email to register. You are not considered registered until payment is collected. If payment has not been received within 5 days, the current payment plan will be invalidated and registration will be revoked.
We offer two options for tuition payments:
- Credit/Debit Card: Payments can be made in full using your Visa, MasterCard, or Discover card.
- Payment Plan: All payment plans are four months and begin the day of your first installment. Click ‘Pay Later’ when registering through your unique attendee link. A one-time $100 administrative fee is charged for each module put on a payment plan. You may have up to three payment plans running at the same time. The missed payment plan fee is $25.
Please reach out to our registration team at email@example.com to inquire about group payments. We offer a 10% discount to groups of five or more in some situations.
Until further notice, SEI's scholarship program is on hold and no new applications are being accepted. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.
SEI’s new scholarship program has been recently expanded to meet the needs of more students seeking SE training at affordable rates through discounts on tuition to United States-based trainings. Awards come in the form of partial tuition coverage, which is applied to the student’s account pre-registration.
All scholarship awards are valid for one year following the award date. After that point, applicants will need to submit a new application. Scholarships are not retroactively applied to completed registrations.
