***Tuition increase notification***
The Tennessee Naturalist Program provides quality adult environmental education while maintaining our independence as a nonprofit organization and keeping our tuition rates significantly below other states’ naturalist programs. TNP has grown in both scope and vision the last few years, adding three new chapters, building a custom database with enhanced reporting and administrative functionality, and expanding our catalog of TN2 continuing education workshops and courses. New and ongoing fiscal demands to maintain the program’s high standards necessitate gradual tuition increases over the next three years. We are confident students will continue to view the course as an exceptional value.
January 1, 2023 TNP tuition will increase to $300.00
January 1, 2024 TNP tuition will increase to $350.00
January 1, 2025 TNP tuition will increase to $400.00
All chapters offering core TNP courses are independent organizations who make their own schedules. If the chapter of your choice has no open course offerings, please contact the coordinator listed here or navigate to the individual chapter page for coordinator information to find out when their next course will become available.
ALL CORE COURSES ARE TAKEN AS A WHOLE. CORE COURSE CLASSES ARE NOT OFFERED INDIVIDUALLY.
