Saint Anselm College

The cost of a postsecondary education can vary greatly depending on the college or university one chooses to attend. To help you find the school that best matches your financial goals, we have compiled numerous facts about the pricing, enrollment and admission trends at more than 7,000 colleges and universities across the country.

In this section, you will find information about the various expenses associated with enrolling at your school of interest. Tuition, generally the largest of fees, is broken down by in-state and out-of-state fields. Because students who attend schools outside of their state may find themselves paying thousands more in tuition alone, it’s important to take one’s location into consideration before selecting a school.

As college prices tend to fluctuate from year to year, we have also provided information about tuition trends. While rising prices are an unfortunate norm, greatly varying tuition rates should raise a red flag. Many students need additional time to complete their degrees, so the possibility of higher pricing should be taken into account before committing to a school.

But one may not want to use tuition alone to calculate their cost of attendance. Doing so too often leads to projections that largely differ—for better or for worse—from initial expectations. To avoid unnecessary surprises, we offer information about the estimated cost of books, supplies, room and board and additional expenses. Knowing what to expect will simplify the financial planning process and will allow students to prepare a realistic annual budget.

You can use the following prices to estimate the annual cost of attendance and to familiarize yourself with the financial aid opportunities available to students who attend this school.

Saint Anselm College is a Catholic liberal arts college in the Benedictine tradition. The College offers students access to an educational process which encourages them to lead lives that are both creative and generous. Saint Anselm challenges its students to engage in the fullest experience of a liberal arts education, to free themselves from the strictures of ignorance, illiteracy and indecision, and to dedicate themselves to an active and enthusiastic pursuit of truth. It is through an appreciation of the several kinds of truth -- scientific, technical, poetic, philosophical, and theological -- that students learn to challenge both personal and social problems. Saint Anselm seeks to admit students who are capable of benefiting from the liberal arts education it offers. The College stands open to receive students of every race, national origin, and creed. Indeed, the College seeks to enroll a student body which reflects a variety of racial and cultural backgrounds. As a Catholic, Benedictine institution, Saint Anselm observes and promotes Christian and Catholic standards of value and conduct. The College accepts and retains students on the condition that they respect and observe those standards.
