Enrollment Registration Fee - $100
One quarter tuition - $2500
Tuition for 3 years - estimated length of the program for excellent attendance and a minimum of two hours practice each day outside of class - $30,000
If it takes longer to complete the program than three years, tuition is charged quarterly at $2500/quarter. Texas Refund Policy ends at three years (3000 clock hours).
Since court reporting is skill-based, it is impossible to predict the exact length of the program.
This is a self-paced program once theory is completed. There is no guarantee of the length of the program and the rate of progress must be maintained to qualify for financial aid and for cash students to remain an eligible student.
What affects the length of the program for each student?
Attendance, two or more hours of practice outside of class per day; review of theory book monthly; practicing on finger drills; emotional support from family members; and a great can-do attitude!
