Financial Aid Calculator for High School Seniors

Making College Affordable
Do you know a high school senior who is considering St. Edward’s University in their college search, but they think that a college education at our top-ranking, liberal arts university might be financially out of reach? Tell them about the university’s new financial aid calculator. It’s simple to use. Answer five questions and receive an online financial aid estimate.

If you’re a high school senior, you’ll only need to answer a few simple questions to get an online financial aid estimate.

  • What is your high school rank?
  • What is your combined SAT critical reading and math score? and/or What is your ACT composite score?
  • What is your family’s size?
  • How many of your family members will attend college in Fall 2008?
  • What is your parents’ annual income?


The estimate helps students who may have a greater need for financial aid see how affordable St. Edward’s can be. This is especially important to St. Edward’s as part of the university’s commitment to maintaining a diverse student population from all economic backgrounds.

The calculator is designed to estimate the amount of merit-based and need-based financial aid for students planning to enroll in Fall 2008. Many students and their families may be pleasantly surprised to find they can keep St. Edward’s on their “short list.”

In 2007, St. Edward’s awarded more than $23 million in scholarship and grant assistance (money that does not have to be paid back). It’s just one of the ways that we make getting a St. Edward’s University education affordable.
