Application Fees

Application fee schedule
(applies to new, reflection/renewal
and re-certification applications):

One level at a time: $150
Two levels at a time: $250
Three levels at a time: $350

Note: New Fee Multiple Campus/Multiple Program
Common Program Restrictions Required
New 2013 ITTPC Application Form Required
One level at a time: $150 primary + $50/additional campus or program
Two levels at a time: $250 primary + $100/additional campus or program
Three levels at a time: $350 primary + $150/additional campus or program

NOTE: As programs move to consolidate programs and reduce costs, separate programs have asked to apply under one certificate. They can do that provided they coordinate the four aspects of certification so that they all follow the same core guidelines approved for the following: tutor selection, tutor training topics, tutoring experience tracking, and tutor evaluations. Multiple campuses and/or multiple programs will pay a fee per additional unit.

In the past, each campus and program was required to be certified separately. Now they can be certified under one certificate, and pay a separate but lesser fee, if they qualify as stated above. All of the campuses and/or programs on the one certification must meet the same approved criteria for all four components (tutor selection, tutor training, tutoring experience, and tutor evaluation).

Multiple Campuses or Programs.

See Create your own Invoice (.doc) for details on the fees and to calculate and find out what your certification fee should be.

Any area that has responsibilities for any of the following: tutor selection, providing and tracking the tutor training, tutoring experience tracking and reporting, and tutor evaluations; will need to list that area as a separate program or campus and provide contact information for the person in charge of that responsibility.

As you apply for the 1st Stage: New (or ReJoin), 2nd Stage: Renewal & Reflection, or 3rd Stage: Re-certification and you have multiple programs or campuses to add to identify under your program's certification. Each qualifying addition to the primary program will cost $50-per level-per program or campus. If you want to add a program or campus under a current certification between times of renewal or re-certification, the first program added would be the same cost as a primary program, additional ones would be at the $50. Thus, adding one program between certifications to an existing primary program certification for Level 1 would cost $150 ($250 for two levels, $350 for three levels.

What if I have other areas under the program which simply meet for tutoring in other areas, but I am in charge of all four aspects mentioned above (hiring tutors, training tutors, tracking tutoring experience, and evaluations)? The additional areas would be considered sites or centers by us and no additional charge woul be listed for them. They would not be listed on your certificate either, only additional programs and campuses are listed on the certificate.

For better clarification on multiple programs or campuses under one certificate, contact Rick Sheets, ITTPC Coordinator at
