Restoring Community

General Information

As the first graduate school devoted to the emerging field of restorative practices, we do not yet have an endowment, so our ability to offer financial assistance is limited.

The IIRP offers Transparent Tuition for matriculated students, guaranteeing that their tuition will never increase. In addition, matriculated students receive an 8% discount for all coursework taken at the IIRP. We do not charge fees for course registration, materials, graduation and transcripts. (There are fees for course withdrawal and late registration.)

Students are responsible for the cost of textbooks and materials in each course.

Interest-Free Payment Plan

The IIRP offers an interest-free tuition payment plan that extends over 39 months for Graduate Certificate students or 96 months for Master’s Degree students. The payment plan has no prepayment penalty. There is a one-time payment plan set-up charge of $75.

Shawn Suzch Scholarship

The Shawn Suzch Scholarship is awarded in July to a matriculated master’s degree candidate who demonstrates outstanding spirit and drive worthy of Shawn’s memory. $1,000 in tuition assistance will be awarded in memory of Shawn, a young man who overcame adversity with courage and determination. The scholarship recipient will also be someone who expresses financial need to support their studies. The application and further details are available in your Student Portal.

Military Benefits

Military personnel (and their dependents) who have served or are currently serving our country may take advantage of educational benefits available through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
