Tuition and Financial Aid

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.

MSN: Entry-Level tuition, 2015-16 academic year

  • $751: Tuition per credit (2015-16 rate)
  • 5-10 credits: Number of credits you'll take each term (January/Spring, Summer, Fall)
  • $42,807: Total tuition costs for the 57-credit MSN: Entry-Level, at 2015-16 rates.

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.

These figures are for estimation purposes only. Because tuition rates change each June 1 for the following academic year, your costs will be higher than the figures listed above. You'll also be charged student fees. For up-to-date information on tuition, fees and billing, see our student accounts pages.

Financial Aid

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.

For details and to apply for aid, consult the Office of Financial Aid website, or contact our graduate student financial aid counselor, Catherine Flowers, at or 651.690.6607.
