  • A. Wilmette Institute's Tuition Support Policy

    The fee for a standard 6 to 9-week course is $75.00 for Individuals, with discounts for seniors (65+), full-time students, and Baha’i pioneers or volunteer staff. 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.
  • If you need a full scholarship, please tell us briefly why you are unable to contribute to the cost of the course.
  • B. Installment Plan Options

  • The WIlmette Institute can arrange a series of partial payments to your credit card. It is easy for us to charge the credit card already on file; we just click on “card ending in xxxx” (all we can see is the last 4 digits), enter the amount, and click the charge button. Please choose from the following options.
  • B2. Design your own installment plan

    Use the fields below to tell us how much you can pay. Up to four installments are acceptable, over a four-month period. The minimum payment per installment is $10.00. Set the date of the first installment, and subsequent installments will be scheduled for the same date each month.
