Tuition and Financial Aid

Tuition: More affordable than you may think

Evening|Weekend|Online at St. Kate's offers extraordinary value. If you pursue a bachelor's degree through Evening|Weekend|Online, you'll pay a tuition rate that is less than half the rate charged to students in the university's traditional weekday program.

But you'll get the same quality experience: small class sizes, a highly supportive learning environment, personal attention from faculty, and the value of St. Catherine University B.A. or B.S. on your resume. And you'll get a life-changing, values-based learning experience designed just for adult students.

To help reduce your costs (and speed  your time to graduation), we'll work with you to transfer in your previous college credits. Find out more about credit transfer at St. Kate's.

Information about current tuition rates and fees is available through student accounts. Tuition rates are subject to change, effective June 1 of each year. The number of credits taken per term varies; some students take as few as 4 credits; others take 8 credits or more. Many students register for 6 credits or more to take become eligible for "half-time" financial aid. For details, see our students accounts page.
