  • Tuition Payments

    Cash, checks, money orders, cashiers checks are all accepted as payment for tuition. If you are paying with cash, the money must be presented at the Treasurer’s Office. Check, money order or cashier’s check payments are mailed to:

    Tuition payment must be mailed to:
    Saint Ignatius College Prep
    7304 Solution Center
    Chicago, IL 60677-7003

    The Solution Center address is only for tuition payments. Parent pledge payments and payments to Quest must go to the individual department.

    When mailing tuition payments to the Solution Center address do not include correspondence as this is our bank lockbox address. Student ID numbers MUST BE included on check. Remember your student ID number changes each year. If you have your tuition payment automatically sent from your bank, please make sure to change the account number.

    Due to the ever increasing fees associated with using a credit card for payment of tuition, Saint Ignatius College Prep prefers payment by check, money order or cashiers check. Credit cards may be used as payment of tuition, if necessary, by paying online here and following the prompts. We accept American Express and Mastercard. You will be charged a 2.75% convenience fee for your transaction.

    If your son or daughter will not be attending Saint Ignatius College Prep in the fall, please notify Mr. Kevin Bellie, in writing, as soon as possible.

    The tuition at Saint Ignatius covers costs common to all students. Tuition covers up to six units of credit per year, as well as costs for counseling, laboratories, lockers, gymnasium, yearbook, school newspaper, participation in sports, clubs and other cocurricular activities.

Tuition Assistance

Saint Ignatius has a program of tuition assistance with several different types of aid. Tuition Assistance may be offered to students in need. Families complete the necessary forms for review by the Committee. It is the policy of Saint Ignatius not to grant any aid for a period longer than one year. Applications must be made annually. The forms are made available February 1. Forms can be found below or on the school website, under Quick Links > Forms and Documents. No application can be considered unless the student applicant is registered for the coming school year. Students may be eligible for any of the following forms of assistance during a given year.
  • Alumni Grants – These are direct credits to tuition
  • Work Opportunity for Students - This program allows students to earn tuition credit by doing various jobs for the school during the regular school year or summer. A maximum of $650 may be earned toward tuition in this program. Work opportunity is not offered to freshmen.

Coordination with Tuition Assistance

The Tuition Assistance Committee notifies families of the grant they will receive for the coming academic year. The Treasurer’s Office posts 1/10th of the grant to the tuition account each month, August through March. The balance is due from the family on the due date, per tuition policies.
