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

3.73 Average Rating
Saint Peters gives out a substantial amount of financial aid, and has great plans for loans as well. Any student will be able to find the best arrangement for themselves and their financial situations. Also do not forget to fill out your FASFA!

Saint Peter's College is a bit expensive but it will but worth all the work and learning you are receiving.
Frances from New York, NY
With the money you are paying it is providing you with a lot of cool services you need to succeed such as wireless internet and tutoring sessions. Not to mention if you live on campus your washer rooms are free so you are not paying extra on top of what you already are.
Stephanie from Albuquerque, NM
Although SPC is expensive, the financial aid counsellors here actually work WITH you rather than just telling you that you owe money to them. Just don't wait til the last minute to do your FAFSA like I did. lol
Alexander from Atco, NJ
The school gives you a huge amount of scholarships, you end up paying a small percentage of the original price. The financial aid office is very friendly, and with payment plans and loans there are many options to paying your tuition.
