Paying Tuition by Check or Credit Card

Checks should be drawn on a US Bank, made out to “Bahá’í Services Fund: Wilmette Institute” and mailed to Wilmette Institute, Bahá’í National Center, 1233 Central Street, Evanston, IL 60201. Because course payments are for a service, they are not tax deductible under US tax laws.

Your registration confirmation email provides a confirmation number and instructions how to use it to pay by credit card. The instructions will take you back into the registration system, where payment can be securely made.

If you need to provide us your credit card information, DO NOT EMAIL IT because that is not secure. Call our toll free number (877-wilmette, 877-945-6388) and leave a message with: type of card (for example Visa); full name on card (please spell it out); card number; expiration date; security number on back; mailing address where you receive the credit card bill; amount to charge; and the title of the course you are paying for. A phone number or email address where we can contact you may also be helpful.

All credit card payments and refunds through our registration system automatically generate an email notification to your email address. If you wish to withdraw from a course, we typically retain a $10 administration fee.

The Wilmette Institute does not have a PayPal account.
