  • The undergraduate education provided by Saint Francis University is funded primarily from tuition. Annual tuition amounts are approved by the Board of Trustees. The tuition rate for the 2017-18 academic year is $33,856 for a full-time, traditional undergraduate student. 

    In addition, there are fees for expenses associated with lodging, food, insurance, facilities, technology, orientation, and travel. For assistance in funding, we also offer a wide-array of financial aid resources to help you achieve your higher-education goals.

    The actual totals for each student are dependent on room and board preferences, credits of courses or labs with special fees, waiver of student health insurance and vehicle on campus, etc.
