Aquinas Institute (AI) courses are offered either for college credit or for catechetical instructional credit. The college credit comes through the University of Holy Cross in New Orleans. The catechetical instruction credit comes exclusively through AI and can be used only toward a catechist diploma through Aquinas Institute.
Catechetical Institute Credit through Aquinas Institute
AI catechetical students will register directly with Aquinas Institute and the tuition ($200 per course) is paid directly to the Aquinas Institute. If a student wishes the course to count toward a Catechetical Institute Diploma, the student must have at least a 90% attendance (greater than this requires excuse from professor) and must successfully pass a 10 min. oral exam at end of course. If a Catechetical Institute student desires college course credit at a later date, he/she must re-register for the course and pay the full tuition price.
