Making College Affordable


St. John's is committed to a financial aid program that rewards academic merit and recognizes financial need. The college's financial aid program tailors each financial aid package to the student’s individual circumstances with a combination of college-funded scholarships and need-based grants, low-interest student loans, and work-study. Our awarding process is very personalized, and our commitment to making a St. John’s education affordable to all students, regardless of income, is unwavering.

Points to remember:
