Tuition & Fees

The costs of AHOS programs are kept intentionally low in order to ensure that the programs may be accessible to the greatest number of people.

In addition to educational costs listed below, students are expected to purchase books and materials required by their program, as they begin or continue the process of building their own personal theological library. The Library Fee not only covers use of the Antiochian Heritage Library at Antiochian Village, but also provides current degree-seeking students with Reciprocal Borrowing privileges at participating ATLA member libraries across the U.S., and remote access to the Library’s online database subscriptions.
