Housing and Transportation

During their stay in Boulder, students typically rent rooms from community members at a cost of $400 - $600 per month. A local, private referral list is available to students upon enrollment. This housing referral list includes pertinent contact information, along with details on location and distance from The Rolf Institute.

Many of the living situations are within walking distance or a short bike ride or a short drive to The Rolf Institute. The bus system throughout Boulder and Denver is quiet convenient. A local bus route (#205) drops students off just a block away from the school. Click here for RTD (Regional Transportation District) website.

Payment Policies

Enrollment and Tuition Deposit

All payments can be made online. Currently only credit cards are accepted through the online billing system. If payment must be made in another form, please contact us.

For Foundations Basic Training, half of the tuition for all classes is due two weeks before the class begins. The remaining balance is due two weeks after the class has started. Students will be emailed an invoice which allows them to pay the balance stated through the online billing system.

For Accelerated Foundations Basic Training, Advanced Training and Rolf Movement Training, payment will be made over several installments, the first being two weeks prior to the start date of class.

For Continuing Education and Rolf Movement Workshops, half of the payment is due at the time of enrollment. The second half is due by the start of class.

Students will be assessed a late fee of $50 if payment is received after the due date. Students may not begin any class until the appropriate tuition has been paid. Late enrollment is occasionally permitted, depending upon space availability.
