Tuition Policy

Out In Front is deeply committed to socio-economic diversity in our cohorts, and as such, we prioritize making the program affordable to all participants, regardless of financial circumstances. We are proud that we have never had to turn away a participant for financial reasons. We seek participants who come from diverse personal and professional backgrounds.  We welcome applications from people who are working in the non-profit, public, and private sectors, as well as applications from students and people who are currently unemployed. All are encouraged to apply.

Out In Front certification and participation in the graduation ceremony are dependent on having met your tuition obligations.

Full tuition for the program is $1,500 per participant.  The actual cost to Out In Front to run the program is approximately $3,000 per person per year.  We are able to sustain the tuition rate through the generous support of community members, local businesses, and other Out in Front donors.

Out In Front encourages participants to seek full or partial tuition reimbursement from their employer whenever possible. A suggested Letter of Request for Tuition Reimbursement is available upon request for participants to modify for their own place of employment.

Participants with financial need may request a tuition adjustment based on a sliding scale. If you would like to request a tuition adjustment, please complete the Sliding Scale Request Form.


Prior to the third session, participants who must withdraw from the program for any reason may receive a refund prorated on the basis of sessions attended. Tuition is not refundable after session three.
