Registration for Immortal Diamond closes two weeks before the course opens or as soon as the course fills, whichever comes first. Scholarships may be available to those who are unable to pay the full course fee. To seek financial assistance, please download and complete the Financial Assistance Form. Applications are due at least 1 week before registration is scheduled to close. Please do not register for the online course until your request for financial assistance has been processed.


Self-Paced and 24/7 Access

Once the course begins, online learners may access it 24 hours a day, at whatever time is convenient for them. (The course will not be accessible to registered participants until 9 a.m. US Mountain Time on the first day of class.) Immortal Diamond is self-paced and 100% online, allowing you to participate at whatever level of engagement you find most comfortable. There are no “live” lectures in this course; you may access the content at any time.

New lessons will be posted each Wednesday morning (US Mountain Time). Once posted, you may access that content throughout the rest of the course. In other words, you may go back to earlier course content, but can’t move ahead to content that hasn’t yet been posted.

The first week of the course is designed to familiarize you with the online course features and format that will be used throughout the course.

You may expect to spend 2-4 hours per week fulfilling the required reading and other components of the course (including online discussion and personal reflections). Supplemental offerings are optional and may increase the amount of time you spend in the course.

Course content will no longer be available once the course ends at 11:30 p.m. US Mountain Time on the last day of class.


Cancellation Policy

Online course registrations are non-refundable. Registration occurs at the moment the course is purchased online. Please ensure you are comfortable with the structure and dates of the course, and have the skills and equipment required to participate before you register.
