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
You will definitely being getting all your moneys worth, if you get involved with things around campus. It doesn't have to be to much but at advantage of the things that are offered. Also take advantage of the facilities that students can use like the tutoring center, the writing lab, the free printing in the library, counseling, financial counseling, and so much more.
Victoria from Houston, TX
This is a costly school, but many students are on scholarship. Don't fear, there is work-study and many other merit-based scholarships the school lends out. If you are persistent and do more than sit in a classroom, St. John's will love you.

St. Johns truly is an up and coming university! Yes, it is a bit pricey; however, it is a private, well noted school! Alumni are HUGE here and really do help out wiht scholarships, jobs, etc! Plus, there are a LOT of new buildings. There is a huge new University Commons with completely all new facilities. Some other universities have not been renovated in years and years! Also, a lot of the dorms (like the brand new townhouses) have JUST been built within the past 3-4 years, so really they are extremely nice!.. and very large compared to many other college dorms as well.

St. John’s is not the cheapest University in the world. No need to fret because there are so many opportunities for aid. The amount of aid and financial opportunities that you can be a part of is so large; I am still applying to some right now while having a few under my belt. The compensation you get for coming to a private university like this is really generous for more that 80 percent of the student body. One reason could be due to the massive amount of alumni that St. John’s has and they help out in big ways such as scholarships, internships and job opportunities. St. John’s have different payment plans to accommodate the different situations its students can be in. When you arrive here, you will easily see how in tune people are with financial aid. When you ask students why they chose to go to St. John's, most of them will probably say “Because they gave me the most money.” St. John’s University is also pretty nice to its students throughout the years. With tuition the school provides students with a free laptop which becomes yours after your graduation. There's always various amounts of events that students. Just this fall there was a Maroon 5 concert that I remember many people screaming their heads off for. There are free shuttle buses that leave campus and take you into Manhattan as well as other locations if you happen to not have a car. Assortment of outlets and free resources like tutoring are just waiting for students to hold of them. In a lot of colleges, a good amount of money is going to the name. In St. John’s, the academics are really the same in a more personal environment with a less hefty price tag.

This school is really good with financial aid. The only thing is that one needs to really make sure all the financial stuff is taken care of first. First year freshman do not get penalties for paying late. Another good thing about this school is that it offers a deferred payment plan. Students don't have to pay their bill all in one hit. The greatest thing about coming to this school is that it is in New York City. It was cheaper for me to go to school on the other side of the country than to go to a state school in California.
Melisa from Santa Ana, CA
While St. John's is a private university with a hefty price tag, they have a tremendous amount of scholarship money available. Almost everyone I know here has received a scholarship that is beyond generous and many of them even have full (tuition) scholarships. When you ask students why they picked St. John's, most of them will probably say Because they gave me the most money.
Christina from North Caldwell, NJ
it is somewhat expensive to live here just because it's New York so you gotta learn how to be money-savvy

Financial wise, they give away a lot of grants and scholarships, right now I'm only paying half of my tuition, and i know students that is going by FREE RIDE, just make sure that if your financial aid is depending on grades, that you keep your grades up.

all students get a free laptop that they keep if they graduate. If they don't graduate the laptop is taken back.

i like the fact that we get to wash our clothes for free (laundry mat in every dorm)
and there is a website that lets students know when washers and dryers are open if your too lazy to go to the laundry room
