The Board of the Trustees of the Collegium Augustinianum are committed to keeping our degree programs affordable since we firmly believe that one’s financial state should not prevent the furtherance of one’s education, especially in the sacred sciences of philosophy and theology. Thanks to the generosity of our patrons, the Collegium Augustinianum also awards academic scholarships, tuition remission scholarships, graduate assistantships and a few work-study scholarships to students who can demonstrate financial need. Tuition and fees are subject to change according to the most current publication of the prospectus. All fees are non-refundable.
