A graduate degree is an investment in your future, and we understand that covering tuition and other education-related costs can be a real challenge. Saint Kolbe University provides access to a quality education at an affordable cost, in ways and languages that meet the students of the world where they are.
The Simplicity of Fixed Monthly Payments
Services actively evolve; it is time for education to evolve, too. That is why we offer a very simple payment plan for our students. You would pay a fixed monthly fee of $562.5 for the 3 courses per term. It is THAT simple.
Part of our commitment is for you to have peace of mind. Once you start your program your tuition and fees are locked in and fixed for the life of your program.
This way you will have no surprises of unexpected increases or changes that might jeopardize your completion.
Hard Times Policy
We understand life circumstances well. If you are enrolled in the program and you face a significant life hardship, like loss of employment or a health-related situation, you can suspend your learning for a short time. We will allow you to stop the payments giving you time for recovery. Remember, the maximum time to complete a degree is 150% of the expected program time.
Debt Free Graduates
We want you to graduate to succeed, not to be in debt for years to come.
With our low tuition fees and monthly payments, we allow for students to be able to pay as they go, avoiding a huge burden at the end of their programs.
This approach also allows for a very simple application process, without the many forms and documentation needed to apply for loans and government programs. This simplicity also allows us to reduce the administrative costs and pass those savings straight on to you.
Usually, our students can afford the monthly payment with a combination of employment income, family contributions, and savings.
Saint Kolbe University is fully committed to your success. In case you are fully qualified for our programs and you can demonstrate that you have an affordability challenge where you cannot provide up to the entire monthly payment, you might be able to qualify for one of our scholarships.

Paper Diplomas and Certificates
We live in a digital world, so all our diplomas and certificates are issued digitally, signed by our president and with a unique serial number that links that diploma or certificate to your academic achievements.
Many students might choose to print and frame the certificate; however, if you prefer to receive a heavy paper diploma or certificate issued by the institution, there is an additional $150 certificate delivery fee to cover the cost of printing and shipping worldwide.
All amounts are in US Dollars.
