Why is Holy Apostles Lowering Tuition?

Debt free grad
The administration at Holy Apostles has recently reviewed the budgeting plan and tuition structure. This reassessment led to a change in the way we calculate tuition costs. Our president-rector, the Very Rev. Douglas L. Mosey, CSB, gave the final approval for the new plan yesterday. Beginning July 1, a new tuition schedule will go into effect as follows:
  • All undergraduate courses will now be $320 per credit hour, or $960 per course. This is a decrease of $125 per credit hour, or $375 per course.
  • All graduate courses will now be $320 per credit hour, or $960 per course. This is a decrease of $30 per credit hour, or $90 per course.

These changes represent a recognition that the increase in student numbers we’re expecting this academic year will offset the cost of the tuition savings. More students means we can afford to lower tuition while maintaining our excellence in education and services. The reason why we’re lowering tuition, then, is simple.

To quote Dr. Sebastian Mahfood, O.P. Vice-President of Administration, “We believe that a debt-free graduate is a gift to the Church, so we endeavor to ensure our students graduate as debt-free as possible, consonant with our mission to educate Catholic leaders for the purpose of evangelization.”

Many blessings to everyone as we prepare for the 2015-2016 academic year!
