Extension course fees, and the Wilmette Institute's Tuition Support Policy

The fee for a typical 7 or 8 week course is $95. If this will be your first course with us, you will receive a 30% discount - just choose "First-Timer Discount" on the fee selection page when you register. 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.

The Wilmette Institute offers easy interest-free installment payment plans. How it works: the Registrar will send you a unique discount code. You will register and make the down payment by credit card.  The Institute will schedule the remaining payments once a month to your credit card, on the same date of the month as the day you registered. Often, people find that installments solve their payment problem without the need to ask for tuition support. 

Note: All fees are quoted in US dollars. Payment by credit card is required for self-registration in our courses. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express, If you need to pay by check or money order, contact the Registrar for a deferred payment code.
