Here is how that works: we total all payments made for the Great Books courses for college credit, and any payments for our Theology Online courses, and credit those towards the AA track total. Any discounts previously received are counted towards the AA track total, that is, they are added into the total paid. The balance needed to reach the AA track total cost of $14,000 is then scheduled for payments (based on the estimated time to finish the AA track courses), or paid in full. NOTE: There is a $2,000 minimum balance/payment necessary to transfer to the Associate’s degree track.

So for example, if you have completed 3 years of the Great Books program and paid $9,000, then you would need to schedule $5,000 in payments to complete the AA program. Assuming you plan to finish the remaining Great Books year, and take the Theology Online and 5 Holy Apostles courses over the next two years, the monthly payment would be $5,000/24 months = $208 per month. Since the $5,000 balance is more than $2,500 that minimum is irrelevant.

Another example: You have completed all four years of the Great Books program and three of the Theology Online courses paying a total of $13,000 after receiving $1,000 in various tuition discounts. The $12,000 paid + the $1,000 in tuition discounts = $13,000 in credits towards the AA program, leaving a balance for it of $1,000. Since the minimum balance necessary to transfer from the college track to the Associate’s degree track is $2,000, the monthly payments over the one year needed to complete the AA program would be $167 per month ($2,000/12).
