** This is an estimate based upon our research through online textbook vendors. CGI uses Open Educational Resources (available online at no cost to the student) whenever possible to reduce student cost of attendance. The student will be provided with a list of required textbooks during the initial enrollment process and is responsible for purchasing textbooks and supplies separately.

***Institutional Review Board (IRB) supported through a partnership with the University of New Mexico.

Invoices are sent from the University of New Mexico to CGI upon the IRB’s review of the student’s project. CGI will pay the invoice to the University of New Mexico. Then CGI will invoice the student via Populi. Refunds are not available to any IRB Fee Schedule because the University of New Mexico does not offer a refund to any student/institution, since the invoice is delivered post review. Students will have thirty (30) days to pay the invoice via Populi before being assessed a late fee. If a student fails to pay on time, they will be subject to CGI’s Collection Timeline.

****Beginning Summer 2022, enrolled students will be subject to a credit card processing fee of 2% of credit and debit card payments.

Payment Options

CGI works hard to make tuition affordable and accessible for our students. CGI developed several payment programs to accommodate all budget types. Programs are administered by CGI. Please contact the Student Billing Department at 480-285-1761 or at finance@cgi.edu for more information on payment plans.

Students utilizing CGI payment programs are responsible for timely payment of tuition and fees. Students must recognize this may mean they are responsible for their financial obligations to the Institute before receiving reimbursement from the student’s tuition assistance source.

Payment Options in Detail

After students are enrolled in their courses, the Student Billing Department will assess their term invoice to their student Populi account. All invoices will show full tuition amount due for the term and all invoices, regardless of how students intend to pay, CGI will break down the full payment into payment plans according to the term they are enrolled. For the Spring 1, Spring 2, and Fall term the full total amount of tuition will be broken into three (3) payments. For the Summer term, the full total amount of tuition will be broken into two (2) payments. All invoices will show the payment due dates and amount due on that payment due date. Students may choose to pay tuition in full on or prior to the start date of the term or pay tuition based upon the payment plan on their term invoice.

Additionally, for the Spring 1, Spring 2, and Fall term, all courses students register for, regardless of seven (7) or twelve (12) weeks will be totaled for a term total and then broken into three (3) payment plans.

Term/Options Details
Spring I, Spring II, and Fall Terms  Payment Plan (3 payments)

  • Three (3) payments (tuition for the term is totaled and spread across three equal payments)
  • The first payment is due on or prior to the start of the first day for that term.
  • The second payment is due thirty (30) calendar days from the first payment due date.
  • The third payment is due sixty (60) calendar days from the first payment due date.
Summer Term

 

Payment Plan (2 payments)

  • The first payment is due on or prior to the start of the first day for that term.
  • The second payment is due thirty (30) calendar days from the first payment due date.
Payment in Full Students are required to pay tuition following the payment plans detailed above; however, if they prefer to pay their tuition in full, payment is due prior to the start of the first day.

For example, if a student who was enrolled in the degree or non degree program Spring I 2022 or prior, enrolls in one, 3-credit hour course for the Spring I Term, their full term tuition total would be $1,050. The first payment of $350 is due on or prior to the start of the first day of the term, the second payment of $350 is due thirty (30) calendar days from the first payment due date, and the third payment of $350 is due sixty (60) calendar days from the first payment due date.

For example, if a student who was enrolled in the degree or non degree program Fall 2022 or after, enrolls in one, 3-credit hour course for the Spring I Term, their full term tuition total would be $1,200. The first payment of $400 is due on or prior to the start of the first day of the term, the second payment of $400 is due thirty (30) calendar days from the first payment due date, and the third payment of $400 is due sixty (60) calendar days from the first payment due date.

Financial Assistance Options

 

CGI accepts private scholarships, grants, and loans. Scholarships and grants are gift awards that do not need to be repaid. A loan is money you borrow and must pay back with interest.

CGI understands the critical importance of the availability of financial assistance for completing the degree. As such, financial assistance may be available for those who qualify through private lenders. CGI will not work with any outside companies. It is the responsibility of the student to communicate with the outside company.

Financial Assistance Disclosure

CGI is accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC). CGI is not qualified for Title IV funds and does not have a IFAP School Code.

Prior Education Loan Deferment

CGI is not qualified to accept Title IV funds, which means students enrolled at CGI are not eligible to defer prior loans from other degrees or education.

Private Educational Loan Information

CGI accepts payment from a Private Education Loan. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure payment from the Private Educational Lender is applied towards the tuition in full or by each term. All CGI students who choose to participate in outside Private Educational Loans are responsible to pay back all monies to the student’s Private Education Loan lender for the agreement amount. CGI will not communicate directly with the Private Lender in any matter regarding student finances. It is the students full responsibility to ensure payment is received by CGI in accordance with its payment deadlines policies.

Employer Reimbursement/Third Party Payments

Any employer reimbursement or assistance can be used to cover tuition and fees. It is the student’s responsibility to make arrangements for payment to CGI and with the employer for reimbursements regarding continuing education. CGI will not communicate directly with the third party or employer in any matter regarding student finances.

Private Scholarships and Grants

CGI accepts private scholarship and grant dollars to cover part or all of a student’s tuition. If a student has been awarded a private scholarship or grant, the student must make arrangements with the Student Billing Department to use the funds to pay for tuition costs by the tuition deadline each term. Students who receive private scholarships disbursed to their personal accounts are responsible for using these funds appropriately to pay for the intended educational expenses, including tuition, books, supplies, and conference attendance costs.

Upon completion of the certificate, any outstanding financial balance is due and payable immediately

Financial Obligations for Withdrawn Students

A program withdrawal constitutes a drop from all courses and departure from the program. Withdrawing from the program does not eliminate the student’s financial obligations to CGI.

Any outstanding financial balance at the time of withdrawal is due and payable immediately. All refunds will be refunded according to the Refund Policy.

Forbearance and Deferment Options

At that time, the Finance Department will reach out to the student via email notifying them of the late fee and financial lock. 
  4. Students who have not paid their outstanding tuition within seven (7) calendar days, the Finance Department will notify the Registrar who will put a Registration Lock on the student’s account in Populi, which prevents them from being able to register for courses. In addition, the Finance Department adds a Financial Lock to the students account and emails the Librarian to remove the student from their courses in the Learning Management System. 
  5. Upon a student making payment to their student account to bring it current, the Finance Department will:
    1. Remove the financial lock on the student’s account
    2. Notify the Registrar to remove any registration locks on the student’s account due to financial reasons 
    3. Notify the Librarian to  re-activate the student into their courses in  the LMS.
  6. Reminder emails of delinquent accounts will be sent every thirty (30) calendar days until payment is received.
  7. After ninety (90) calendar days of unpaid tuition and fees, the student’s account will be deemed uncollectible and the student will not be able to continue in the program. The student will be given notice via email and certified mail of this enrollment change due to lack of payment. The balance will remain on the student’s account and then the Institution will document the tuition as uncollectible and it will either be sent to collections or written off the balance within its company books. 

Note:

  • If a student needs assistance or has questions, please reach out to the Chief Operating Officer. The Chief Operating Officer will work with students to make accommodations when difficult times arise in the student’s life. 
  • In the event a student account is delinquent, CGI, as well as outside agencies working on its behalf, have the right to communicate with the student via email and/or phone regarding an outstanding balance. When an account is turned over for collection, the student is obligated to pay CGI’s collection expenses. If a lawsuit or other action is filed, litigation falls under Arizona state jurisdiction and the student agrees to pay CGI’s attorney’s fees as fixed by the trial court. If any party appeals any part of the trial court’s decision, the student agrees to pay CGI’s attorney’s fees for the appeal as fixed by the appellate court. Any disputes, mediation, or legal proceedings will be held in Maricopa County in the State of Arizona.

The totally online DBH program offered by Cummings Graduate Institute of Behavioral Health Studies is focused on the professional I have grown into: a synergistic disrupter for the healthcare industry, who is passionate about Wholistic Healthcare (e.g., health, behavioral health, and Social Determinants of Health and Mental Health), rendered skillfully through interprofessional teams. The program pillars of medical literacy, integrated behavioral health interventions, and entrepreneurship resonate loudly with me. The healthcare industry will continue to change, with doctoral level professionals needed to play a major role in any successful transformation. My goal is to further advance my knowledge-base, professional standing, and industry commitment to be part of these transformational efforts. In this way I can heed the Quadruple Aim: assuring quality-driven patient-centric care is rendered at the right time, through the right population-based treatment processes, at the right cost, and by empowered professionals embracing the work and committed to their charge.
