Registration & Payment

Payment Details

  • Once you are accepted into CDI, the CTE will contact you to complete a brief registration form. Registration only applies to accepted participants and is separate from the application process.
  • You will have approximately 2-3 weeks to submit payment through the CTE's payment portal.
    • Be sure to select 'Course Design Institute' from the dropdown list. The fee for CDI is $900.
  • Participants are responsible for arranging their own travel and lodging (see this page for hotel suggestions).
  • Up to five UVA graduate students may be accepted into CDI with expenses covered by CTE; this is contingent upon space and funding availability. 



CDI qualifies for UVA's Education Benefit through HR. Funding requests are submitted directly by the employee to UVA HR through Workday.

  • Full-time academic and Medical Center employees who have been employed at UVA for at least 12 months have $2,000 per calendar year available for professional development.
  • Faculty who are not eligible for education benefit funding may qualify for a needs-based scholarship through the CTE, but we require written proof that the funding request was denied by HR.
    • The CTE requires that you apply for HR's Education Benefit even if you think you will not qualify.
  • For additional details about the Education Benefit program, please see UVA HR's website.
