Policy for Delinquent Tuition:
Tuition that is over 30 days late will be subject to a late fee of 10% of the payment owed. Students on the $200.00 per month payment plan will be subject to a late fee of $20.00 for each late month. Students on the $300.00 per month payment plan will be subject to a late fee of $30.00 for each late month. The late fee will be added to the total amount due. If delinquency goes beyond 3 months, the student will be notified of her removal from the attendance records and she will no longer be enrolled with Via Vita.
Please note: If a late payment is made, that payment is not for the current month, but for the past month. Another payment will be required for that month’s current payment. Otherwise, there will be another late fee the following month.
*Note to Alaska students:
To qualify for licensure, all the above must be submitted to Via Vita. The state now requires the school to verify, by a notarized statement, that all the above have been submitted.
Policy for Active Alaska Apprentices:
Coursework is generally self-paced and can be submitted out of order prior to active clinical apprenticeship. Many student midwives begin their studies one or more years prior to the active apprenticeship. Once the student midwife holds an Apprentice Permit, and plans to submit the application for licensure to the State of Alaska, modules must be completed in order, with quizzes completed and submitted before the first exam can be issued.
The final exam must be completed a minimum of 6 weeks prior to the date the licensing application is submitted to the licensing examiner. Failure to submit the coursework and exams in this time-frame may result in the student being denied to sit the licensing exam.*
There are three examinations issued by Via Vita. Exams can only be issued in numeric order, after having submitted the following:
Prior to Exam One:
