Tuition & Fees
The College Internship Program is a full year program with programming occurring during the Fall, Spring, and Summer terms. Each new student is fully assessed in the admissions and interview process and a Level of Support is determined.
On-Campus / Entry Support Levels
Incoming CIP students are assessed into an entry Level of Support of either “Core” or “Plus”, depending on their needs.
- Core Level – $59,900
- Plus Level – $69,900
Off–Campus / Transition Supports
Enrolled CIP students who meet certain benchmarks and remain in close proximity have the opportunity to transition to CIP’s off-campus support options – Graduate Living Program (GLC). Students can retain the key supports they need while working, living in an apartment or at a college campus, and/or transitioning into the local community.
In addition to CIP’s individually tailored services, each student chooses to pursue one of the following areas of focus:
Tuition for enrollment in a college, university, vocational program, or other certification program varies and is separate from CIP’s costs.

Students reside in furnished apartments with their own room and bathroom, shared kitchen, and other common spaces.

Financial Sponsors are expected to provide the student with a monthly allowance check of $550 for food and personal spending money. This check should be made payable to the student and sent by the 15th of each month for the following month (i.e. payment should be received by October 15th for November’s expenses). Students learn to budget with the assistance of staff.
