Seeking insatiable minds and bold hearts. 

Liberal arts means you'll get a little bit of everything. And we don't mean "jack of all trades, master of none." You'll still specialize in a field — but you can also take classes across different schools, in case you're the sort of person who is drawn to both political science and English. And, you will absolutely walk away as a more well-rounded thinker, ready to tackle complicated problems.

So before you make a decision based on cost, we hope you'll check out the academic scholarships we offer new freshmen — up to $88,000 over four years. We'll automatically consider you for them when you apply to St. Edward's. No additional application required.

The mission of St. Edward’s University inspires us to confront the critical issues of society and to seek justice and peace. Educating students to be engaged and thoughtful citizens remains paramount to this mission. The Admission Office would like to reassure any students who have applied or been admitted that their participation in peaceful demonstrations, including resulting disciplinary action from their school, will not negatively impact their application or enrollment status at St. Edward’s.
