Your Dream Degree is Possible

At Saint Leo, we’re all about delivering a high-quality liberal arts education at an affordable cost. Our tuition is significantly lower than the average private college tuition and we offer generous financial aid through various scholarships and grants. In fact, 95 percent of our current students receive some form of financial aid (yep, you read that right, 95 percent ).

Our financial aid wizards are waiting to hook you up with scholarships, grants and more. Here’s a breakdown of the three types of aid you could qualify for:

  • Gift Aid — You don’t have to pay it back
  • Loans — Repayment is required, but terms vary by type
  • Work-Study — Work part-time to offset tuition costs

An Affordable Education

College is a huge decision. Costs will come into play no matter which school you choose. Investigating the finer points of fees and financial aid will help you make the smartest investment in your future.


Sticker price is rarely what students actually pay to attend college. A school that seems out of reach could actually turn out to be totally affordable. Don’t let published costs put you off your top picks. Always go through the financial aid process first! That way, you can compare bottom-line, out-of-pocket costs for all the schools you’ve been looking at and make a truly informed decision.

Our Students:
  • 95% receive some form of financial aid.
  • 95% receive gift aid that does not have to be repaid.


Think you can’t afford a private education? Think again. A top-quality private education is possible thanks to Saint Leo’s surprisingly low costs. Compare our tuition rates to other small schools and you’ll see what we mean.

Our Tuition & Fees: 
  • 36% lower than the average U.S. nonprofit four-year college.
  • 27% lower than the average Southern private nonprofit four-year college.

Getting your hands on an amazing financial aid package is as easy as 1-2-3.
