You will be guided through three steps to complete your enrollment for the Authentic Leadership Program at Naropa University.
To secure a place for you in the program we request you make a $500 risk-free deposit. You will then schedule an application interview call with a faculty member. Once you have been accepted into the program, your deposit will be applied towards your tuition
* Note: The $500 deposit will be promptly and fully refunded to anyone not accepted into the program.
Should you have any questions, please see the (Frequently Asked Questions)FAQ’s tab above or click here to schedule a 15 minute call with one of our program enrollment advisors.
During the application interview you can make a final decision whether the program is right for you. Following the acceptance process, the $500 deposit secures your place in the Authentic Leadership Program, and it becomes non-refundable. However, if you choose not to attend the program, we can apply the deposit to a different Authentic Leadership Center course with the addition of a $250 program transfer fee. Deposits are non-transferable 30 days prior to the start of the program.
After completing your deposit, you will be guided to our program application intake form. This information will be reviewed by our faculty prior to your application review call.
Lastly, you will be invited to schedule a 30-minute call with a faculty member who will discuss your application with you to ensure this program is the right fit for the next step in your leadership journey.

On average, it takes about 2-3 hours per week for reading, participating in online discussion, practicing skills, journaling, coaching sessions, etc. Participants can adjust their time commitment to the program, depending on their work or travel schedules. The readings are prioritized, so participants can read as much as they have time for in a particular week.
All of the readings are provided online so there is no additional fee for books.
Tuition is $5,300 for the noncredit professional. Travel, lodging and food are not included. (Please see below for the graduate credit pricing.) Some partial scholarships are available. Preference will be given to participants who register 60 days before the start of the course. Please email [email protected] to request scholarship information.
Yes, if you have an undergraduate degree, you can receive six (6) accredited graduate credits for this program. The tuition is $6,500* – which includes a non-refundable materials and coaching fee. When taking the program for academic credit, two papers are required as well as regular attendance and participation online. It takes a bit more time, but most people who have taken the class for credit have said that they were glad they put in the extra effort and that writing the papers helped distill their knowledge and insights from the class.
Your deposit guarantees your spot in the program but in order to receive the early bird discount, you must pay the full amount (or sign up for split payment) prior to the early bird end date. click here for more information
