Description of Fees

Application Fee – A one time non-refundable application fee is required with application for enrollment into any course taken on campus.

Administrative Fee – A non-refundable administrative fee is payable with the first payment of the Children’s Ministries Institute® (CMI®) bill.  The administrative fee covers orientation week costs, recreation fees, equipment, class photo, graduation fee, etc.  The fee is $180.00.  If attending individual courses, the administrative fee is calculated for each course.

Room – CMI offers private rooms for all single students and apartments at affordable costs for married couples with children.  Apartments range in size from 2-3 bedrooms with cooking facilities.  Your living accommodations will be ready and waiting for you.  There is no extra charge for children living in apartments.  Priority use of apartments is given to those attending the full twelve week program.

Board – A beautiful dining room is available for your convenience to serve students breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Students and their families living in the apartments have the choice of cooking for themselves or eating in the dining room.  A meal plan should be prepared for families before arriving on campus.  Contact the CMI Registrar  to help design your individualized food plan and price.

Materials – Students on campus will receive their books during orientation and before each course begins. Therefore, it is not necessary for on campus students to order their books in advance.

Application Fee – A one-time non-refundable application fee is required with application for enrollment into any course taken on campus or any full eight or ten week course taken online.

Materials – All materials should be ordered for delivery prior to the first day of class.  If students do not have the required materials when courses begin, they may miss assignment deadlines which may jeopardize student success.  Although most of the course material in the form of streamed video is available online, other course materials may be in the form of texts, manuals, curriculum, CDs or DVDs.  To ensure materials arrive prior to course beginning, students in the U.S. are advised to order 3-4 weeks in advance, and students outside the U.S. are advised to order at least 6 weeks in advance.

Online Administrative Fee – A non-refundable administrative fee is payable with enrollment in each full course.  The administrative covers orientation costs, registration and enrollment costs, etc.  The fee is $60.00.

Proctor Fees – Some courses involve practicums that require a proctor two or three times during the course. A fee of $10.00 should be paid to your proctor at each scheduled meeting.
