Cost of Education in the Holy State University
In the Holy State University, we are not charging anything for
education, but we have obligatory donation levels. This entitles students to
receive education from the Holy State University
Please note that Academic Year is different from calendar year. Each educational year for the degree program has 60 educational credits received after successful completion of required courses if we use 60-credits per year system (also called in our University "International System"), or 30 credits per year if we use 30-credits per year system (also called in our University "North American System"). In both systems number of study hours per year is identical and cost is based on academic year cost. 30 credits per year system will not give any financial advantage because cost per credit will be higher. Yearly cost must be divided by number of credit to receive cost per credit.
Person can start education at any time
and extend Academic Year for as short as 6 month, or as
long as a few Calendar Years, but payments are made on the basis of academic year.
Educational credits in the Holy State University:
Upon request made by student we can use 30-credits per year
or 60-credits per year system.
When we tell that our academic year has 60 academic
we never meant that our students need to spend more hours
for study comparing to students from universities with 30
credits per year system.
Commonly used 30 and 60 credits per year educational systems
are in fact identical. Only difference is that in 30 credits
per year system, student spends 45-50 hours for study for
each academic credit.
European educational credit
system and American system, both are using approximately
identical number of academic hours per academic year.
In the United States universities are
counting academic year as completion of 30 educational
credits (Semester Credit Hours), where each credit
considered to be as student's study work during 45-50
According to Bologna Process (used often in Europe) academic year consists of 60 educational
credits, where each credit considered to be as student's
study work during approximately 25 academic hours.
Total number of academic hours per academic year is the same in both systems.
This explains the fact that during evaluation of North American education for the use in European Union,
number of educational credits received in the United States are multiplied by two.
Acceptance of student's study course will result in issuance of 6
educational credits (3 credits issued in 30 credits per year
systems). If course is short, lesser number of credits will

Academic year in the Holy State University is not a
calendar year and we count completion of 60 (30 credits if
30-credits per year system used) educational
credits as completion of academic year, regardless if person completed
academic year in 6 months or in a few years.
For professional courses that have only
a few credits requirements, cost per each credit is equal of
division of the cost per year to the number of credits (30 or 60 credits per year systems).
Each registered student has ability to reduce costs of education - see our section
Some additional administrative charges may apply (such as admission fees, graduation fees, etc.). Tuition costs can be changed at any time, but each student may receive the came cost per academic
credit /year until graduation date.
All costs (levels of
required donations) listed above are subject to change at
any time. If you are already enrolled, listed above levels
of donations may apply until your
graduation date, but if we reduced our cost of
education, student will be paying at applicable reduced rate
(but it would not be prorated for already processed payments).
DONATIONS ARE NOT
REFUNDABLE AND MOST LIKELY ARE TAX DEDUCTABLE AS DONATIONS
TO RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATION, or as educational expenses (see our section "U.S. Tax Benefits for Education").
Benefits of educational system in the Holy State University
How fast you can study?
Our answer is, as fast (or as slow) as you want.
In the Holy State University, your
Academic Year can be as short as 6 month, or as long as a
few Calendar Years, it is up to you.
Please note that you are not paying for
calendar years. If it takes for you 3 years to complete 60
(or 30) academic credits (required for each academic year), you are
not paying for 3 years of tuition fees, but you are paying
only for 1 academic year costs (because our year is academic
and counts only after receiving 60 (30 credits with North
American System)credits by student). If
you managed to complete 60 credits in 6 months, you are
paying the same cost per academic year (not 50% less),
because in 6 months you completed requirements for full
academic year (received 60 academic credits).
We have no additional charges for students that
want to study fast, just our minimal regular costs (see
section "Cost of Education").
Calculation of academic year:
In compliance with Bologna Process, we
are using 60 credits per year academic year system (upon
request we can use 30-credits per year system), which is
to 30 credits per year system used in many U.S. universities and
colleges. At present time, some progressive U.S. universities
are also switching to 60 credits per year system that makes
U.S. educational system equal to European Union system (for
universities that adopted rules of Bologna Process). Number of study hours (academic hours) are identical in both approaches,
the only difference is that more credits are issued for the same courses of study when
60-credits per year system is used. See our section
Each student must spend on average 1500
academic hours (academic hour is 50 minutes) per
year for study (independent study in our university). The
same number of hours per academic year applies equally
regardless if students are studying in universities using
system with 30 or 60 academic credits per academic
academic hours are equal to 1250 astronomical hours (regular
If student will study 8 regular hours each day,
then he/she can complete 60 academic credits (academic year
approximately 160 days, that represents about 5.5 months.
Obviously, in usual circumstances, it is not easy to study
eight hours each day, but nevertheless, it is possible for
