Tuition and Financial Aid

Sattler College offers a program of financial aid to students who qualify. Financial aid may be offered in the form of scholarships, grants, loans, or work-study employment. We do not participate in government-funded aid programs but offer institutional grants and a loan program to assist our students. Awards are based on academic performance, demonstrated need, and the availability of funds. Due to generous donations to the college, 100% of our students receive some form of financial aid. The Office of Financial Aid is ready to discuss how a student’s particular needs can be met.

Our students receive, on average more than $30,000 in financial aid and/or scholarship. This includes automatic discounts of $27,000 for tuition and $6,270 for room and board due to the generosity of Sattler donors. Additional aid will be awarded on an individual basis through the financial aid application process.

To be eligible, a student must:

  1. Be accepted and enrolled in a degree program. Apply Today!
  2. Complete our Net Price Calculator and copy your shareable link on the results page.

Several of our students have approached private schools and businesses to create a mutually beneficial arrangement. This often means receiving tuition or room & board support and in return committing to work or teach after graduation for a number of years.

Summer Employment

By carefully planning ahead our students can find summer employment to help offset the cost of attending Sattler. Our student services department is available to discuss life planning to help you optimize your ability to make Sattler affordable.

Work Study

The Sattler College Work-Study Program provides jobs for undergraduate students with or without financial need. The program encourages work related to your course of study. To be eligible, a student must apply for work-study. The eligibility guidelines include a complete application and a maintained 3.0 grade point average. Work-Study jobs are not guaranteed.

Private Scholarships

Students should attempt to locate scholarships for which they are eligible. Sources of information are high school guidance offices, charitable organizations, service organizations, employee credit unions, and libraries. Students who receive private scholarships are required to notify the Office of Financial Aid. Private scholarships are used to cover any unmet need and then to reduce loans.
