Free Trials & Refunds

Trial Policy

Two classes may be attended for free. After the second class, the student will be invoiced via Populi. Full payment, or application for a payment plan, will be required before the following class or the student will be placed on financial suspension.

Refund Policy

A student may withdraw from any online course before the end of the add/drop week for a full refund. No refund will be given for withdrawals made after the add/drop week of each term.

Seminarian Scholarships

Since the Apostolic Constitution Veterum Sapientia was especially concerned with the Latin and Greek formation of seminarians, VSI is solicitous to support seminarians in a special way. Any seminarian who would like to study with VSI, but for whom tuition is an inhibiting factor is asked to submit an admissions application and contact us about applying for a scholarship.
