FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


The tuition fees for enrolling, and continuing enrollment, in the College of the Sacred Mists are as follows: a one time enrollment fee of $30.00 (requested for each degree, upon enrollment), and a $25.00 per month tuition fee. Some courses may require a higher payment: this should be clarified explicitly on the enrollment page. Tuition subscriptions are maintained on a month-to-month automatic subscription basis, with the first payment totaling $55.00. Money Order and direct credit card tuition submissions require a semi-annual, pre-payment schedule.

There are NO hidden fees or required additional costs. Your tuitions help to support the college activities, administration and time that goes into the quality education and experience found within Sacred Mists. We’re confident that you’ll not find the same quality, interaction and atmosphere anywhere else, regardless of cost!

Yes! All of Sacred Mists College Courses are available to anyone, anywhere, at any time. Sacred Mists is home to students from every corner of the globe.

We accept credit card, Pay Pal, and money orders for your convenience. PayPal is extremely convenient and will do all currency conversion for you should you be located outside of the United States, as tuitions to Sacred Mists must be submitted in US funds.

In circumstances where PayPal will not work for you, most banks or postal services will issue an International Money Order upon request, and we can also work directly with you to establish credit card payments. Please email Rev. Lorien Carrillo for payment terms with regard to International Money Orders, direct credit card payments, enrollment fees and semi-annual tuition payments after you have submitted your enrollment form. Thank you!

There is no time limit to complete courses at Sacred Mists Acedemy… however we do require that you spend at least one year and one day in training to complete each degree.*

At the end of each degree awarding program, you will receive a beautiful, custom designed, Certificate of Attainment via email from Sacred Mists stating that you have earned your 1st, 2nd, 3rd, Adept or Elder Degrees. Those Students wishing to initiate and follow the Sacred Mists Tradition will also receive information on crafting their own Sacred Mists Witches’ Initiation Cord and adding attainment tassels to their cord as they are earned through the program.

Degree Initiation rituals take place within our online ritual environment, where you will be surrounded by your friends and fellow students. Initiation Cord instructions and crafting (as well as Initiation participation) is available only to those students who wish to initiate into the Sacred Mists Tradition. Initiation and cording is not a requirement for training within Sacred Mists Wiccan Training Program for your First through Third Degrees.

Sacred Mists prides itself on its affordability and in-depth nature. We truly enjoy teaching, sharing and experiencing the Craft with others. Our courses are well thought out, wonderfully written and very comprehensive. You’ll find information and training within our College that you won’t find elsewhere. Our Community is wonderful and we interact with each other as a family and World Wide Coven. The personal relationships, knowledge and instruction you receive with Sacred Mists is unique and beyond compare.

We are confident that there is no online offering that is more comprehensive and interactive anywhere else. Additionally, we offer several student “extras”, including Sacred Mists extension classes, which are inclusive of your tuitions!

Sacred Mists has no desire to be “bigger”, we simply strive to offer the best and most comprehensive Wicca, Witchcraft, and magick education and training programs available anywhere. We are succeeding in this goal, and are continually expanding the programs and offerings we make available to our students. We feel strongly that “bigger” is not better in a Coven, or really any, learning environment. Sacred Mists is about personal interaction with each and every student and maintaining a safe and warm environment in which to spread your spiritual wings. We want to know you! We would find it impossible to provide the level of personal instruction, training and interaction with our students if we hosted tens of thousands of seekers into our Circle. Our school comprises an average of 2,000 students at any given time and we feel that this number provides us the ability to train our students in such a way that it closely mirrors the offline coven’s personal training environment.

In the case of other schools, “bigger” also means that your lesson work is graded via an impersonal, computer generated, online system, always with multiple choice questions and answers and extremely limited depth and testing of your own, unique knowledge. Sacred Mists will never employ this practice. As Wicca and Magick is a fluid process, with no one person “knowing all”, we feel that it is imperative to have a personal training system that takes into account each and every unique perspective. This is inherent to the core of a true, Mysteries training process. The electronic assessment, multiple-choice, methodology employed by “bigger” schools removes the ability for your teachers to truly train you on your path and know where you may need additional support, assistance and guidance to perfect your art. Within Sacred Mists, each course assignment that you submit will be assessed thoroughly and personally, and you will be provided unique feedback to your responses as you move forward through the lessons on your journey. There are no electronically generated scores, no mass-produced “grades”. Ours is an honest, and personal assessment of your path with encouragement to delve deeper, experience more and explore the realms of magick via an online environment that closely mirrors the way true Witchcraft knowledge and training should be passed on and learned.
