Financial Assistance

We offer financial assistance to avoid turning away anyone with a genuine interest and motivation to participate, if the cost is the only thing preventing them from participating.

With our online registration process, you are able to use a credit card to pay the fee, which gives people some flexibility in making payments over a longer period.

If you a have genuine financial need and the considerations above are not enough to allow you to participate in one of our courses, please contact us (mindfulness@health.ucsd.edu) to inquire about financial assistance. The financial assistance we can provide for each class is limited so you may not be able to enroll in a given course and may have to wait until the next available course.

Cancellation and Transfer Policy

Participants who withdraw prior to the 2nd class will receive a full refund minus $50 for the course materials and registration fee. We are happy to transfer you to a different class within the same cycle if you have a change in schedule. Transfer cannot be made to a different class in a different cycle. If you decide to cancel your current registration, we will cancel and process a full refund minus the cancellation fee ($50) if we receive a notification before the 2nd class. There is no refund after the 2nd class.

(Note: CFM requires a minimum of 10 registrants per MBSR class to hold class. Classes with fewer than 10 will be cancelled with options for rescheduling into open classes.)
