We understand that cost is an important consideration for most families when choosing a college. The financial aid process may feel daunting to you; however, our office is here to help. We encourage all students who feel they need assistance to apply.

Your need is determined by comparing the total anticipated costs of a Saint Anselm education in a given year with the financial contribution that Saint Anselm expects from you and your family. Financial aid (scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study) is offered to help fund your education.

We have provided the Saint Anselm Net Price Calculator to estimate your out-of-pocket expenses to attend the college. The calculated price will be based on 2019-2020 Cost of Attendance, the information you provide on your family's financial resources (student and parent income and assets) as well as your self-reported academic background.

We believe that financing a student’s education is a family responsibility, to the extent that the family is able to help. Unless you qualify as an independent student by federal standards, or you have highly unusual circumstances, you must file with your parents. You should talk to a member of the financial aid staff if you believe you have circumstances that warrant special consideration.
