St. Ed's is located on South Congress Avenue, which is lined with some of Austin's most iconic restaurants, shops and businesses, and is only a few miles from the heart of downtown.

Deciphering the real cost of college can be complicated, but it doesn't have to be. It starts by understanding what you'll pay after you're awarded scholarships and grants. At St. Edward's, the average tuition paid by first-year students is less than half the sticker price.
