Tuition and Costs

Tuition for 2014-2015 (subject to change in future years) is set at $3,800 per module. The Openseminary Program consists of six modules.  Most of the reading assignments are available online, however students should budget $50-$75 per module for books.

Students outside the Philadelphia area should budget $700-$800 (which includes room and board) for each of the week-long residencies. (This cost is reduced significantly for commuters or for those who make their own lodging arrangements.)

Students in this program have access to federal Stafford loans, which may be applied not just to tuition but to other program expenses, including travel, room and board during the residency periods.
