WHAT DOES THE APPLICATION LOOK LIKE?
View the video below for an overview of the application process.
HOW SOON WILL I KNOW IF MY APPLICATION IS ACCEPTED?
After filling out the application form and paying the non-refundable $150 deposit, our admissions team will communicate with you (typically via email) within 3-5 business days to follow-up with questions or scheduling a student interview.
When your application process is completed and you have gained acceptance, a letter of acceptance will be sent to you via email from our admissions team. With the letter of acceptance, you will also receive a payment link so that you can set up your model of tuition payment(s).
Please note that we desire for our students to have a genuine spiritual hunger and eagerness to participate in the training, and not attend unwillingly because they are being “forced.”
If you have questions about the registration/acceptance process, please reach out to us at [email protected]
HOW DO I APPLY FOR A SCHOLARSHIP?
For a video tutorial of how to apply for a scholarship, watch the video below this box.
Ellerslie supplies over $128,000 each year toward scholarships. It is our desire that this money be directed to the students facing the greatest financial needs in order that everyone desirous of attending our training each year would be able to do so.
In order to apply for one of our scholarships:
• during the application process, there will be a section asking if you would like to apply for a scholarship.
• click “yes” and choose the amount you are requesting and answer the questions
Please note that our scholarship funds are limited and we kindly ask that you apply only for an amount that is needed. While we cannot guarantee that you will receive the scholarship amount requested, most students who apply for a scholarship typically receive some form of scholarship help.
Currently we have the following scholarships available:
• One $1500 scholarship is available for each 5 week training
• Two $1000 scholarships are available for each 5 week training
• Two $750 scholarships are available for each 5 week training
• Eight $500 scholarships are available for each 5 week training
• Ten $250 scholarships are available for each 5 week training
• Three $500 scholarships are available in each Weeklong training
• Ten $250 scholarships are available in each Weeklong training
DO YOU OFFER REFUNDS IF I CHANGE MY MIND ABOUT COMING TO A PROGRAM?
Once you receive an acceptance letter into an Ellerslie semester, a spot is allocated to you and this subsequently restricts Ellerslie from accepting another student for that spot. We recognize that there are sometimes unforeseen things that may come up and prohibit you from attending Ellerslie – and as such, if you need to cancel your registration to a semester program, the following refund/cancellation policy is in effect…
• If the cancellation is 90 days or more prior to the scheduled arrival (start of the semester) – we will refund you any tuition paid minus $150 (the non-refundable deposit of $150)
• If the cancellation is between 60-89 days prior to the scheduled arrival (start of the semester) – we will refund you any tuition paid minus $250 (the non-refundable deposit of $150 and a cancellation fee of $100)
• If the cancellation is between 30-59 days prior to the scheduled arrival (start of the semester) – we will refund you any tuition paid minus $450 (the non-refundable deposit of $150 and a cancellation fee of $300)
• If the cancellation is between 15-29 days prior to the scheduled arrival (start of the semester) – we will refund you any tuition paid minus $650 (the non-refundable deposit of $150 and a cancellation fee of $500)
• If the cancellation is 14 days or less prior to the scheduled arrival (start of the semester) – there is no refund for any tuition paid
Note: we are happy to change the semester or program you registered for and apply any tuition paid to a future semester/program. Any such changes must be made by email ([email protected]) at least 14 days before the start of a semester.
Any refunds given, may be subject to dispersement in 2-4 payments depending on Ellerslie’s cashflow at the time.
If your reason for cancellation is due to an extreme life circumstance (severe illness, death in the family, etc), please let us know and we will do what we can to work with you.

For example, if you are attending the summer semester and it starts on June 10 then the payment due date would be due seven weeks prior: April 22.
HOW CAN I APPLY FOR A PAYMENT PLAN?
For a video tutorial of how to apply for a payment plan, watch the video below this box.
You are welcome to apply for a payment plan during your application process. In the application there is a question asking if you’d like to pay your tuition in full or set up a payment plan (please note the due date for tuition payments is 7 weeks prior to the start of the semester).
If you choose a payment plan, you are able to request how many payments you’d like to spread your tuition across. If you apply for the Weeklong Intensive Training, payment plans can be up to 6 months (i.e.: 6 payments). 5-week training programs can have payment plans up to 12 months (i.e.: 12 payments). If you bundle all three semesters (15 weeks), payment plans are able to extend to 15 months (i.e.: 15 payments).
