Financial Aid Office

A college education is one of the most important investments you can make in your future. St. Catherine University is committed to helping you find ways to make education affordable for you and your family.  If you are a Prospective or New student, your Admission counselor will guide you through the financial aid process for the first time.


What is Financial Aid? Educational funding made available by the Federal government, State government, St. Catherine University, or outside scholarships. Award eligibility factors include a student's financial need, academic standing, and/or community achievements.

How can our Financial Aid Office help you? The Financial Aid Office assists students in applying for aid from federal and state governments, St. Catherine grants or scholarships, and educational loans. Financial aid advisors assist students with the application process, money management guidance and sensible borrowing. The office can also help students find either on- or off-campus employment.

General Application Guidelines

To receive student financial aid, you must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) every year, as well as a St. Kate's Application for Financial Aid. 

File both as soon after January 1 of the upcoming academic year as possible.  The priority application date is April 15th.
