Financial Aid & Scholarships

We know a college education is a significant investment in your future, and we're ready to help you and your family manage it in the most responsible, affordable way possible.

We’re steadfast in our commitment to financial aid—and you.

We believe that to attract the best and brightest to St. Lawrence, it’s essential that we offer resources to help students from all economic backgrounds realize their academic and career potential. 

Merit scholarships and need-based aid can reduce your out-of-pocket tuition expenses. Once each individual award is determined, students and their families are responsible for the remaining portion. 

To assist with this, we offer interest-free payment plans. Federal and private student loans may also help cover the difference between your family’s resources and your cost of attendance. 

Building a Plan Just For You

Our knowledgeable financial aid counselors will discuss options available to you based on your family’s situation and help you determine the best and most responsible way to afford a St. Lawrence education.

Helping You Stay On Track 

We’re also here to help you thrive AFTER college. Developing financial literacy is an important part of being a college student and becoming a young professional. St. Lawrence University offers budgeting and personal finance workshops and resources.
