The Wilmette Institute is independent of the Baha'i Fund, and must cover its expenses to keep its doors open. Tuition support funds are obtained from generous donors. The Institute asks each student to consider their expenses very carefully, and let it know how much he or she can afford. You can expect a response from the Registrar's office within 48 hours of your application.
