Tuition Assistance


We believe Jesuit education should be available to talented students from all financial backgrounds. At SLUH, we admit students based on their ability to succeed, rather than their families' economic circumstances.

For questions, contact Craig Hannick, Director of Financial Aid at (314) 269-2098 or 


The knowledge and experiences gained over four years at SLUH, as well as the relationships developed, set the foundation for a bright future. A SLUH education is an investment in your future.

2022-23 Annual Tuition: $19,750 (Payment plans are available)

The actual cost to educate each SLUH student is $23,097; however, generous alumni and benefactors help bridge the gap and ensure a SLUH education is accessible to as many young men as possible. Learn more.


SLUH makes every effort to assist families who demonstrate financial eligibility, the calculated measure of a family’s need for financial assistance. Besides income (taxable and non-taxable), we take into account assets, expenses, liabilities, and the number of children attending Catholic schools (K-12). Furthermore, we encourage families to bring any special circumstances to our attention.

Financial aid applicants are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Each student award decision is unique. Families are required to create a FACTS application in order to receive their award.
