Saint Joseph’s University is pleased to provide students with this financial aid calculator as a guide in planning for college. The calculator will estimate financial need and merit awards based on prior year data. Estimates are based on award policies for the 2018-2019 academic year and are subject to change.
  • Your estimate is meant to help you plan your educational financing at the University and is based on the information you provide in this calculator.
  • This calculator is intended for full-time, first-time domestic freshmen who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
  • Please remember that this estimate does not represent a final determination, or actual award, of admissibility, financial assistance or a final net price; estimates are based on cost of attendance and financial aid provided to students in 2018-2019. This estimate shall not be binding on the Secretary of Education, the institution of higher education, or the State.
  • Be sure to complete the required admission and financial aid applications, including the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to determine your final eligibility for federal grants, loans, or work-study.
  • If admitted and your family has special circumstances, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions after submitting your FAFSA for an individual review of your award.
  • We are pleased to be able to offer funding to our students. Among our full-time students enrolling for college for the first time in 2018, 97.5% received grant or scholarship aid. St. Joseph’s University is the largest source of funding for our full-time undergraduate students, awarding over $91 million in institutional grants/scholarships during the 2018-2019 academic year.
