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:

Average Financial Aid Package $40,524. The average financial aid package at St. John's is more than half of the cost of attendance. This includes need-based financial aid and merit scholarships.
Need-Blind Admission St. John‘s College follows a need-blind admissions policy. Applicants are considered for admission independently of their need for financial aid. 
Need-Based Financial Aid  St. John's meets the full demonstrated need of all U.S. citizens and permanent residents and provides generous need-based financial aid to international students. More than 70% of St. John‘s students currently receive need-based financial aid. Students reapply for need-based aid each year. The FAFSA is required; the CSS Profile is required for international students and optional for others (but highly recommended if applying Early Action).
Merit Scholarships Up to $23,000 per year, renewable for all four years. Both domestic and international students are eligible.
