  • For Rolfing® Certification Program in Boulder, CO, a deposit of $300 is required to enroll in each phase of the program ($900 total). Students are not considered fully admitted to the program until all three deposits have been paid. Half of the tuition for each Phase 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 six weeks before the start date which allows them to pay through the online billing system.
  • For Rolf Movement® classes and the Advanced Training Program, a deposit of $300 is required to enroll. Deposits are applied to the tuition. Payment will be made over several installments, depending on the length of the training.
  • For Continuing Education Workshops, half of the workshop fee plus the full administrative fee is due at the time of enrollment. The second half of the workshop fee is due before the start of class. Students will be invoiced a month before the due date which allows them to pay through the online billing system.
