Freshman Tuition Deposits

A non-refundable deposit of $1,000 is due with student registration upon receiving notification of acceptance from Salesianum. This deposit is deducted from the full payment (Plan A), and the tuition amount when calculating semester payments for Plan B, monthly payments for Plan C and bi-monthly payments for Plan D.

Tuition Refund Insurance

Per the terms of the Salesianum Tuition Contract, students are enrolled for the full year and no adjustment of fees or tuition can be made by Salesianum for absences, withdrawals or dismissals. To insure your annual financial obligation under the terms of the Tuition Contract, Salesianum offers a Tuition Refund Insurance Plan. Tuition Refund Insurance is optional and is provided by an outside company, A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. The purchase of Tuition Refund Insurance is a protection of a family’s investment in the case of student withdrawal. The insurance coverage provides a pro-rated tuition for mid-year withdrawal due to economic, academic, disciplinary, illness, injury or other reasons consistent with the terms of the Tuition Refund Insurance Plan (Broad Form). The Tuition Refund Insurance option must be selected on the annual Tuition Contract. A premium (typically around 2% of the tuition) is charged in July.

Another tuition management option is an education loan. Salesianum has partnered with the following companies to offer maximum flexibility in choosing a loan.
