Undergraduate Admissions

Scholarships and Financial Aid

What's the actual cost?

Your bottom line: sticker price minus scholarships and grants, minus loans, minus work-study earnings. That’s a lot of minuses. To help break down your equation, take a look at the handy (and eye-opening) Net Price Calculator.

Our students borrow less

Keep in mind that 95 percent of SPU undergraduates currently receive scholarships and/or need-based financial aid.

And at SPU that aid isn’t just for valedictorians, which means our students borrow less money than the average college student. Most people say that’s a very good thing.

We’ll also show you how to apply for aid — starting with the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form — and find a job or internship in one of the world’s coolest cities.

In the end, don’t let all the money-talk scare you. At SPU, you’ll get to know a full lineup of staff whose purpose and passion are to cheer you on, from your admissions application form to graduation gown.

Questions? SPU’s Student Financial Services team is here to support you. It’s what we do.
