As a GLWI student, either because you have been accepted into the 3-year certificate program or because you have been accepted to explore Waldorf education by taking one or more courses during this Summer Intensive, you may register with GLWI here for your courses – by paying your supply fees.  Please see shopping cart at the bottom of this page.

If you prefer to pay by check, please use this form: Summer 2017 Supply Fees & Registration.

For ALL students, Summer Intensive tuition is paid directly to Mount Mary University.  Students exploring Waldorf or pursuing a GLWI Certificate ONLY “audit” the courses (you will still earn credit toward your Certificate) and will pay $420 per credit; those seeking to earn credit toward a Master of Arts Degree in Education with a Waldorf Emphasis take these courses for “graduate credit” and will pay $675 per credit.

Both tuition and supply fees must be paid to take any of these Summer Intensive Courses.
