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 quality education at an affordable cost, in forms and languages that meet the needs of students around the world.

The simplicity of fixed monthly payments

Services are actively evolving; it’s time for education to evolve as well. That’s 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’s that simple.

Tuition Guarantee

Part of our commitment is to give you peace of mind. Once you start your program, your tuition and other fees are locked in and fixed for the duration of your program.
This way you won’t be surprised by unexpected increases or changes that could jeopardize your completion.

Difficult Times Policy

We understand life circumstances. If you are enrolled in a program and face a major life hardship, such as a job loss or health-related situation, you may suspend your learning program for a short period of time. We will allow you to stop payments, giving you time to recover. Remember, the maximum time to complete a degree is 150% of the agreed completion time.

Debt Free Graduates

We want you to have a successful graduation, without future school debts. With our low tuition and monthly payments, we allow students to pay as they go, avoiding a large burden at the end of their programs. This approach also allows for a very simple application process, without the numerous forms and documentation needed to apply for loans and government programs. This simplicity also allows us to reduce administrative costs and pass those savings directly to you.


Generally, our students are able to pay the monthly tuition with a combination of earned income, family contributions and savings.
Saint Kolbe University is fully committed to your success. In the event that you are fully qualified for our programs and can demonstrate that you have an affordability challenge where you are unable to cover the full monthly payment, you may qualify for one of our scholarships.
