Tuition and Financial Aid
A graduate degree is a major investment in your future — one with an excellent cost-benefit ratio. Backed by the value of St. Catherine University’s reputation, our graduates are prepared to lead, influence and succeed in nursing. But, as with any major investment, graduate school expenses are something you’ll need to plan for carefully.
Your costs will be spread across your 26 months as a MSN: Entry-Level student. You’ll receive a bill for tuition and fees for each academic term (fall, January term/spring, and summer), based on how many credits you’ve registered for during that term. For fall and spring semesters, a four-month payment plan is available.
For details on billing, see our student accounts pages.
MSN: Entry-Level Tuition
Information about current tuition rates and fees is available through student accounts.
You should also plan for additional expenses for books and other course materials, as well as any incidental costs you may incur for transportation and other miscellaneous expenses.
Loans provide the most common form of financial support for graduate students at St. Catherine University. The University receives funds directly from the U.S. Department of Education, which allows our borrowers access to the best terms and will mitigate uncertainties brought on by recent legislation and tightened credit markets. Graduate students may also choose to apply for a Direct Graduate PLUS loan through St. Catherine University.
