Open House

We are pleased to invite you to an open house for graduate theology studies at Saint Meinrad where you can learn about our programs, tour our facilities, and meet current students.

Come to our Open House

If you are a graduate of our school, you can receive a 30% discount on tuition, except for auditing a course. You cannot use reduced-tuition courses toward another degree at our institution.

You must pay all tuition, fees, housing and meal charges before the end of each term to receive a grade report or diploma, be issued transcripts of credit or to enroll in a subsequent term. To make payment arrangements, contact the Financial Aid Office at (812) 357-6561 or

Tuition Refunds

Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology complies with the refund policy established by the 1992 reauthorization of the Higher Education Act.

Weekly, Online, and Web-Hybrid Courses

The amount of your refund depends on if the withdrawal occurs during:

  • Week 1: 80 percent refund

  • Week 2: 60 percent refund

  • Week 3: 40 percent refund

  • Week 4: 20 percent refund

  • After 4 weeks: no refund

Weekend Courses

  • If you withdraw before the second weekend, you will receive a 50% refund.

  • If you withdraw after the first weekend of a course but enroll for the next term, 100% of the tuition charge will be credited toward the new course.

  • If you withdraw during or after the second weekend, you will receive no refund.

Concluding Exercise

  • If you withdraw before the end of the fourth week of the semester, you will receive a 50% refund.

  • If you withdraw after the fourth week, no refund will be given.

  • Students who need to withdraw from the "Concluding Exercise" will have to re-enroll in a subsequent semester at the full tuition rate.

Late Drop Fee for Online Courses 

There is a $100 penalty for dropping an online course within one week of the course start date. Because online courses have limited enrollment, when people drop a course too close to the start date, it often becomes too late for those on the waiting list to get what they need in time to take the course. Thus, the course goes unfilled.
