Is financial assistance available?

The major form of assistance is the significantly reduced tuition offered for all students in the theology programs, comparable to 50% or more reduction of the standard tuition for these programs nationwide. In some cases, the diocese, parish, school or employer will offer further assistance. For those qualified for the Portier Grant (Catholics with financial need, active in ministry in the Archdiocese of Mobile), there are a limited number of tuition grants of up to 25%, for a matching amount of assistance from the parish or school or other archdiocesan institution.
