Making College Affordable
Our Office of Student Financial Services is an invaluable resource for students and their families here at St. John’s. We understand how tricky it can be to navigate through the financial aid process, and we will work with you every step of the way to ensure your student receives the best financial aid award package available.
Our best advice is for you to become as familiar as you can as soon as you can with terms such as Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), financial planning session, deposit deadlines, and financial aid package. You will be faced with all of these from January through May of your child’s senior year, regardless of where they choose to attend college.
Why Visiting is So Important
When last year’s St. John’s freshmen were asked how big of a factor the campus visit was in their decision regarding where to attend college, nearly all respondents answered with, “Very.” The only way to truly get a feel for life on a campus is to physically go and exist on the campus for an information session and campus tour.
