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

3.66 Average Rating
People are often scared away by the price of St Kates, as it is a private school, but I really feel like it will help me in the long run. The professors are very open to helping you inside and outside of class and making sure you understand the materials. Campus security does a fabulous job of making you feel safe by patroling and financial aid does a great job of helping you find a way to pay for school.

Though the tuition seems outrageous, financial aid is easily attainable. No matter what your financial situation is, try for it, you may be surprised how generous the college is. The professors are very knowledgeable and approachable. Also, resources for tutoring, counseling, financial counseling and other issues are worth the price of the school, especially for that first year of adjustment. The food is delicious, but quite overpriced.

I love the Financial Aid here. Everyone is willing to help make college affordable because they are willing to sit down and talk with you and your parents about the cost and tuition here and how to pay for college
