Academic Scholarship Requirements
The information below is intended as a guide to provide students with an idea as to what merit scholarship first-time, full-time freshman applicants may be eligible upon admission to St. John’s University for the Fall 2021 entry term. While evaluating each student's academic record, St. John's will award the highest scholarship available from the charts below based on EITHER the cumulative high school GPA, OR standardized test score (whichever is more advantageous to the student). Students choosing to apply via St. John's test optional admissions policy will have their high school GPA utilized to determine their merit scholarship level.
For example, a student with a 90 cumulative high school average and a composite SAT score of 1100 will fall in the $19,000 to $21,000 range on the Queens campus and the $10,000 to $11,000 range on the Staten Island campus in merit based on their GPA. A student with an 85 GPA and 1300 composite SAT will fall in the $23,000 to $25,000 range on the Queens campus and the $12,000 to $13,000 range on the Staten Island campus based on their SAT score. Students who apply test optional will be evaluated based on their GPA.
Based on your background and financial situation, additional grants and scholarships, as well as need-based aid, may be available to you in addition to the merit scholarships.
