MBSR Class Fees & Financial Information

Center for Mindfulness Logo

The regular course fee for the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program is $495 (or $545 if you sign up fewer than 30 days prior to the start of class).

UC San Diego Employee Discount

UC San Diego Employees may take the course for $395 (or $445 if you sign up fewer than 30 days prior to the start of class).


We have established a scholarship policy to avoid turning away anyone with a genuine interest and motivation to participate, if the cost is the only thing preventing them from participating. With our online registration process, you are able to use a credit card to pay the fee, which gives people some flexibility in making payments over a longer period, and we are willing to make the same arrangements for people paying by check.

If you a have genuine financial need and the considerations above are not enough to allow you to participate in one of our classes, please contact us (via email or phone) to inquire about receiving a special scholarship of $200 off the regular registration price. We have limited space in each class and a limited number of scholarships available, so scholarship students are placed on a waiting list that is subject to space availability. Thus, if you are receiving a scholarship you may not be able to enroll in a given course and may have to wait until the next available course.

Periodically, we are able to reduce the scholarship rate further if finances are especially problematic and a person is highly motivated to take the course. Please contact us for more information about this reduced rate.


Cancellation and Transfer Policy

Participants who withdraw prior to the 2nd class will receive a full refund minus $30 for the course materials and registration fee. We are happy to transfer you to a different class if you have a change in schedule, but the cancellation fee ($30) for your original registration will still apply.
