Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.65 Average Rating
Saint Joseph's is an expensive school, but it is worth your money. The education you get is worth it. Saint Joseph's also helps with paying for school and is generous with scholarships.
Megan from Elkton, MD
Saint Joe's is very generous with scholarships, and the quality of life, education, and socializing available at SJU is unsurpassed.
Colleen from Philadelphia, PA
You get what you pay for. Everything you could ever need is on campus here, and everyone is on your side and is here to help you.
Isabella from Philadelphia, PA
Overall SJU is what you make of it. Get involved, join clubs, participate in events, make memories and friends, but most importantly, excel in your studies!
Dawn from Oviedo, FL
SJU is a private school. that means it is expensive. they automatically consider each student for merit based scholarships. the campus is beautiful everyone is friendly and the school is just pretty awesome. it is worth the money for me.
Julia from East Stroudsburg, PA
This school is expensive, however the school is generous in giving scholarships and grants when students need them. Almost all of my friends at St. Josephs have some form of financial aid. For instance, I have a scholarship and a grant from this school and it has made my expenses much more cheaper, also, there are many campus jobs available, such as work study and these can help pay for the tuition and other expenses as well.
Shanise from Philadelphia, PA
Although at costly price if you do your best and become involved you will definitely not regret it. Saint Joe's wants students who want to be here and they will help you do what is needed for such a student to receive one of the finest educations around.
Tina from Scranton, PA
Yes, St. Joe's is a more-expensive school but there is so much that you can learn and participate in on campus. Most of the professors are wonderful and always willing to give extra help. The university also contains state-of-the-art technology that is useful during the learning process. The class sizes are small so the teacher-student/student-student relationship is possible which enriches the class material and often great friendships. The campus is always kept nice and well-maintained giving every angle a beautiful view...especially in the spring! Also, the set-up of the residence halls encourages an easy way to meet new people and potential long-lasting friendships. Freshmen year the dorms are a bit small but sophomore year to senior year there is much more space.
HAWKS!
It's a growing campus, a bit costly, but definitely worth it.
