Registration and Fees
Tuition charge for the entire two-week program is $8,950, including on-site materials and facilities. Breakfast and lunch will be provided, as will refreshments at an optional reception in the first week. Other meals, accommodations and similar expenses are not included in the tuition. Those applying before our priority deadline will receive a 10% discount on tuition. Please inquire about our non-profit rate.
Applications should be submitted as early as possible, as the program fills quickly and is capped at a small number of participants. We consider all applications and encourage a diverse participant body. Preference for admission will be given to those persons who are in a position to make immediate use of the ideas and skills developed in the program. Please contact our office for more information, or read more about applicants that will be a good fit for PPOD.
Applications must be submitted with a $500 deposit applicable to tuition. The balance of the total tuition charge is due on acceptance to the program. Positions in the program cannot be held for anyone whose application is incomplete.
The $500 deposit is non-refundable. For the remainder of the tuition, the Office of Executive Education Programs in Change & Consultation at Teachers College, Columbia University will provide a full (100%) reduction of charges if the written request to withdraw is received at least 30 days prior to the first scheduled session. Given the demand for this program and the work entailed in its preparation, if the cancellation is reported between 8 and 30 days before the program starts, only 50% of the total charges will be credited. Registrants who wish to withdraw fewer than 8 days before the start date of the program will not receive any reduction of charges for the event.
Replacements acceptable to the program may be made at no additional charge if notice is given at least 30 days prior to the first scheduled session.
Deferrals will be subject to the rules applying to withdrawals.
