ALL STUDENTS: Tuition Information

First payment for all students is due by September 15 and all tuition must be paid in full by May 15 of the spring semester.

  • Students have 24/7 access to their class account from our Student Accounts page.
  • Students may log into their account throughout the year to make payments and/or set up a payment plan on their account. Students are strongly encouraged to pay their tuition in full when registering, or use the automatic payment plan function. Please note that the payment system will require payment plans to complete by May 15 of the spring semester. (If you need assistance setting up a payment plan, contact the office.)
  • All tuition payments are non-refundable; exceptions may be considered on a case-by-case basis.
  • For questions regarding tax credits for tuition, consult your tax professional (NOTE: The St John Vianney Seminary Division has one accredited degree, the Master of Divinity (MDiv) and only seminarians in priestly formation complete this degree through their graduate-level Theology studies. This accreditation only applies to the Seminary Division, and not to the Lay Division.)

It is the student’s responsibility to manage tuition payments ensuring that all tuition is paid in full by May 15 of the spring semester. Failure to pay tuition in full by the May 15 deadline will adversely affect student’s ability to move on to the next year of study and/or enroll in future classes/programs with the St John Vianney Lay Division.

Monthly email reminders: Students with a tuition balance > $0 who are not on a payment plan will receive monthly email reminders from the office (around 20th of month starting in September).
