See costs for the 2018-19 academic year.
Actual costs may vary from estimates. Prospective students may use the College Board’s Net Price Calculator, which is designed to help families plan for the costs associated with attending St. John’s College.
Accepted students may use the financial aid award letter and the Estimated Billing Worksheet 2018-19 to estimate total costs. Use the dropdown prompts to populate the charges accordingly.
Note: The worksheet uses the features provided by Adobe Acrobat products. In order for calculations to work properly, you’ll need to use Internet Explorer or open the file in Adobe Reader software (available for free download).
A student deposit is similar to a security deposit against damages and/or fines. All incoming freshmen, re-admitted students, and Santa Fe transfer students are charged a $200 student deposit. This deposit will remain intact for as long as the student is enrolled at St. John’s. It will be returned, less any outstanding balances/fines/fees, when a student leaves the college.
The Tuition Refund Plan enhances and extends the college’s current refund schedule. The insurance plan, offered through A.W.G. Dewar, covers tuition and activity fees. It ensures up to a 60% refund for medical or mental health withdrawals at any time during the semester. To facilitate enrollment in the program, students will be billed automatically for the cost of the program. No additional application is required. Students will be provided an opportunity to opt out of the insurance program.
All students are billed a non-refundable charge of $125 for the manuals printed by the college for use in classes.
