Registration and Tuition

More details on our Apprenticeship Program, or our Magister program are listed here: Click here for Details

Due to various circumstances, tuition fees may need to change from time to time; but fees will be adjusted only to cover increased operating expenses and maintain our level of service; never to turn a profit. The Grey School of Wizardry is incorporated in the State of California as a non-profit educational institution.

Tuition is due to increase on Jan/1/2022 to the following rates:

Apprenticeship Program (11-17)
Monthly: $20

Yearly: $200

Apprenticeship Program (18+)
Monthly: $30
Yearly: $300

Magister Program (18+)
Monthly: $40

Yearly: $400

Level-Up Fee: In addition to either monthly or annual tuition payment, Apprentices pay a “leveling-up” fee upon moving up to a new level.
The Level-up Fee will be removed with the tuition update on

“Pending Tuition” Status:

When it is time for you to pay tuition, your GSW account will be moved, temporarily, into “Pending Tuition” status. During this time, you will be unable to access the school site or forums. As soon as you pay the tuition due, your access will be restored.

If you are unable to pay tuition at the time you are moved into “Pending Tuition” status, you should do so as quickly as possible. Although there is no “hard limit” on time spent under Pending status, there may come a time when the Pending roles are purged and your membership in the GSW revoked. If this happens, you are welcome to re-enroll at any time but will need to begin anew at Level 1.

Special Notes

Apprentices who reach L7 without completing a Major and graduating may continue as Apprentices under the usual 24 credits/Level structure.

For Apprentices who complete a Major, graduate, and want to continue to take GSW classes they may do so to earn additional Journeyman Certificates.

Captains do not pay tuition; Captains who “level up” should contact the Dean of Students; the Dean will arrange their access to the next level.
Members of staff, faculty, administration, and/or Board of Directors also do not pay tuition.


Scholarships and Financial Aid

The Grey School of Wizardry currently offers scholarship programs for Apprentices who might not be able to attend or continue their Wizardly education due to financial concerns. The Hermes Scholarship and the Pay it Forward Scholarship are awarded to adult and youth applicants, respectively.

Both programs are funded through donations from benefactors at Grey School who, in effect, pay the tuition of that Apprentice for a period of one calendar year. When this period expires, the recipient is encouraged to take advantage of our multiple, low cost payment options. The recipient may re-apply for a new scholarship if needed, but the award of such is not guaranteed. The number of Apprentices awarded with scholarships is dependent on the available funds at the time of application as well as the number of suitable applicants. It is important to note that the continuation of this scholarship is provided with the assumption that the Apprentice will remain active within Grey School.

To find out more about our Scholarship program, please contact the Dean of Students.

Donations to the Grey School

Because our tuition prices are so low, the GSW is always looking for donations to help fund school improvements, web maintenance, etc. The Apprentice and faculty main pages feature “Donate” buttons, allowing a simple way to donate to the school. For questions, or if you would prefer to make a non-electronic donation, please contact
