Non-Credit course fees, and the Institute's Tuition Support Policy

The fee for a 6 to 9 week course is typically $75. 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.

Question Title

* 1. For which course are you applying for tuition support? You can find the current listing here: https://wilmetteinstitute.org/courses/2020-courses/

The Wilmette Institute offers easy interest-free installment payment plans. How it works: the Registrar will register you in the course, then coordinate your down payment by credit card.  The Institute will schedule the remaining payments and confirm them with you. Often, people find that installments solve their payment problem without the need to ask for tuition support. If your course costs less than $75.00, skip to Question 3.
