    The school is slightly expensive, however there are many opportunities on campus, and there are many ways to get help as well. Almost every student that attends Saint Francis University has some sort of grant or scholarship. Many receive an academic scholarship that can range from 1,000 per year to 16,000 per year, depending on SAT scores and high school grades. In order to keep this scholarship however, students must keep the required GPA listed for their category of award. Other reasons why the price of Saint Francis is not that bad is because it is a private university, and it offers free tutoring, a free writing center, free access to the workout facility, and a school nurse who can give medication to students who are seen for no extra cost to the student.

    Honestly have no idea what this place does with the $40,000/year in costs to attend. Outdated technology, awful dorms, one food location, and an overall boring campus. It must go to hiring their armed police force that they have absolutely no reason to have. That's the type of atmosphere you'll be dealing with if you attend here: cops walking around armed with nothing to do but accuse people of drugs or alcohol (often falsely).

    Most private schools do have a large price tag, but here at Saint Francis I never stop hearing about opportunities for scholarships and grants! The Financial Aid Office can be useful in lowering your bill, too!

    It's expensive. There is no way around that, but it is a great school, and they offer tons of scholarships and financial aid especially if you are a serious, academically driven student.
