New Financial Model Questions and Answers

The time has come for colleges to make a transformational change around affordability and transparency in pricing, and St. John’s is taking the lead. The college is adopting a new financial model that will dramatically transform our ability to attract and retain students who want to benefit from a St. John’s education.

Our new financial model is composed of two essential and concurrent actions. First, St. John’s is reducing the published undergraduate tuition to $35,000, eliminating over a decade of tuition increases. The college is also implementing a tuition freeze for graduate students so there will not be a tuition increase for the 2019-20 academic year.

Second, St. John’s is launching Freeing Minds: A Campaign for St. John’s College. This $300-million campaign will add $200 million to our endowment, provide $50 million to further strengthen college finances, and ensure $50 million in campus improvements.
