Parents

Because attending college can be such a transformative experience, selecting the right school is key to your child’s successful transition into adulthood. St. John’s is dedicated to providing our students with a world-class education that is built on the charitable teachings of St. Vincent de Paul. Your child will graduate as a well-rounded global citizen with an understanding of service, diversity, leadership, and excellence.

Where Value and Quality Meet

Values that Run Deep

At St. John’s University, we want our students to graduate with more than just a degree. We want to create successful and compassionate leaders who strive to make a positive change in the world. Our diverse and global student body fosters an environment of acceptance and cultural curiosity that cannot be matched elsewhere.

Financing Education

A college education is a major life investment. And like all investments, it takes careful planning and preparation. Our Office of Student Financial Services is here to help guide you and your child through the financial aid process, including applying for aid, seeking scholarships, securing federal loans, and much more.

Campus Life

Metropolitan - Suburban

As a Catholic university in the Vincentian tradition, St. John’s offers a friendly, supportive, and vibrant campus environment. And, because St. John’s is home to 17 Division 1 BIG EAST athletic programs, more than 150 student organizations, and multiple service opportunities, your child will find a place to belong and keep active.

Safety at St. John’s

St. John’s is committed to creating a safe and secure environment for all students on campus. Our Department of Public Safety, which is comprised largely of former law enforcement officers, is active and available on campus 24/7.
