Paying Your Way: Surprisingly
You’ll find that St. John’s Global Studies experiences are more
affordable than you think. Last year we issued over $325,000 in aid
to St. John’s students per semester.
If you decide that studying abroad through St. John’s is right
for you, we’ll do everything we can to make your experience work
for you financially:

The Office of Student Financial Services recently issued letters,
mailed to students' permanent addresses, comparing the cost of
studying abroad with the cost of taking classes on one of our New
York campuses. Make sure you look at your personal financial aid
offer to see how affordable studying abroad really is!
The tuition and fees for any of our semester-long programs will
be roughly the same as for a semester living on campus. You can
apply most components of your financial aid toward your study
abroad costs, including federal and state grants, federal student
loans and university scholarships and grants. Most importantly,
eligible students are strongly encouraged to apply for additional
aid for a study abroad semester. There are
scholarships available in addition to financial aid. If
you are a student on the Queens campus, call Ms. Rosemary
Encarnacion at the Office of Financial Aid at (718) 990-6975
or via email. If you
are a Staten Island campus student, contact Ms. Theresa Cantarella
in the Kelleher Center, first floor at (718) 390-4350 or via email.
If you’re a visiting student, you may find the costs similar
to those of a term at your home institution, but we also offer
financial aid. Whether through a consortium agreement with your
home institution or through St. John’s-provided aid, we’ll work
with you to make the semester of your dreams affordable.
Whether you’re a visiting student or a St. John’s student, consider
applying for some of the many scholarship opportunities available
to finance your semester abroad. Our Office of Global Studies has
compiled a list of available
scholarships, but please note that some require you to apply as
far as a year before your study abroad semester, so start
