CLA’s partnership with Northwest University provides significant tuition discounts. Additionally, because Northwest University is a regionally accredited institution, its partnership with CLA enables enrolled students to pay for their experience using federal
financial aid (based on eligibility).

As of Fall 2020, tuition costs $316 per credit, plus a $1,300 program fee per semester (to cover the costs of the coordinator and of hosting the program at the local partner’s facility).

All practicum/internship credits are completely free, and there are no additional fees (application fee, technology fee, etc.), which means that CLA costs just over $10,000 per year for a full-time student— one quarter the cost of the average traditional degree!
