Student Tuition Recovery Fund

The Students Tuition Recovery Fund (“STRF”) was established by the Legislature to protect any California resident who attends a private postsecondary institution from losing money if they prepaid tuition and suffer a financial loss as a result of the school closing, failing to live up to its enrollment agreement, or refusing to pay a court judgment.

To be eligible for STRF, you must be a California resident and reside in California at the time the enrollment agreement is signed or when you receive lessons at a California mailing address from an approved institution offering correspondence instruction. Students who are temporarily residing in California for the sole purpose of pursuing an education, specifically those who hold student visas, are not considered California residents for this purpose.

The Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) assessment rate is fifty cents ($ .50) per thousand ($1000) of institutional charges.

We also accept and payments, unless you choose to finance your program.

Except for those fees specified above, there are no other fees for equipment, housing, transportation, books, necessary supplies, materials, shop fees, or other fees the student will incur upon enrollment from California College of Natural Medicine. All textbooks may be purchased from outside sources of student’s choice.
