Note:   Wives of Deacon or Deacon Candidates may participate in the formation classes their husband takes at no cost.  They will be registered as “audit” students and will not receive a certificate or graduate credits.  To enroll, please click the ADD WIFE button on the student profile page.  If a wife would like a certificate or graduate credit, they must enroll as a regular student and pay the associated fees.  To enroll a wife as a regular student, use the New Student button on the home page rather than the add wife button in the student profile 


Payment for courses is due two weeks before the start of class and access to course materials will be suspended if payment is not made by the end of the third week of classes.
