Tuition and Fees - New Saint Andrews College

Our Tuition Is Among The Lowest In North America

 

New Saint Andrews is one of the least expensive private colleges in the country. The College’s tuition is less than half of the average private college tuition and it allows freshmen to lock in future tuition payments at their first-year rate. To preserve its religious freedom New Saint Andrews does not participate in the Federal Student Aid program, but the College does offer a variety of scholarships and grants.

Tuition Lock/Refunds

Undergraduate Tuition Lock

$840

At a minimum, Tuition Lock Program participants are assured of tuition savings at least equal to the amount of the Lock Fee over four years, with potential savings of up to three times the Lock Fee.

Eligibility

Only freshman in their entering year are eligible. To lock in a fixed rate, students pay a non-refundable fee in full with their first tuition payment at the beginning of the academic year (fall) or by the College’s first billing in January. The amount of the fee is based on 80% of the projected tuition savings for the sophomore (2nd year) and junior (3rd year) years as determined by the College according to its revenue projection plan. If the student waits to lock until the January deadline, a “late lock” charge of an extra 10% will be added to the published Lock Fee.

Tuition Savings

At a minimum, Tuition Lock Program participants are assured of tuition savings at least equal to the amount of the lock fee by the end of their senior year (4th year). Likewise, a cap is placed on the amount of tuition savings that can be realized through the program. If the cumulative tuition savings in the participant’s 2nd, 3rd, and 4th years more than triples the amount of the student’s paid lock fee, a Tuition Adjustment Fee may be applied for the tuition savings amount that exceeds the cap in the fourth and fifth years.

Tuition Lock Fee is not refundable

The Tuition Lock Fee is non-refundable. Students who leave the College leave the Tuition Lock Program. If they re-enroll at a later date, they will be responsible for paying the full published tuition rate current at the time of their (re-) enrollment.

Allowance for Retaining Lock During an Extended Absence

The Tuition Lock Program gives students five years to complete their degree. In extending the program one year beyond the typical four-year degree program, the College assumes five continuous years of enrollment. However, circumstances occasionally prevent a student from finishing a degree without interruption. If a student desires to take a one-year absence from classes with the intention of returning, they may do so within the five –year period of the Lock Program. To exercise this allowance, they must:

  • Notify the Bursar in writing of his or her intention by the end of the current school year.
  • Sign a new tuition agreement indicating a payment plan for the sabbatical year (75% of the current year tuition) approved by the Bursar.
  • Pay the remaining balance must be paid in full by July 1st prior to the start of the upcoming school year.

These payments are non-refundable and will apply directly to the tuition for the year following the sabbatical year. This allowance can only be applied to one year of absence for each student.

Undergraduate Refund Policies

The College provides a tuition payment agreement to each student prior to the beginning of the school year so that both the College and its students can plan their budgets accordingly. Tuition agreements distributed by the business office each spring must be returned by the posted deadline, accompanied by a $200 non-refundable deposit. Because the College limits enrollment, students who fail to submit their tuition agreements and deposits by the posted deadline will lose the privilege of enrolment for the following year, and the College may give their place in the student body to another eligible applicant. The following Refund Policies apply to undergraduates and courses offered Jerusalem, Nicea, Chalcedon, and Westminster terms.

Payment in Advance

All students who pay full- or part-time tuition for the year in advance are subject to the following refund rates and schedules, if they withdraw in accordance with the College’s rules governing withdrawals.

  • Those students who pay full- or part-time tuition for the year in advance and officially withdraw before the last day of the Jerusalem Term in October may receive a 60 percent refund.
  • Those who pay full- or part-time tuition for the year in advance and officially withdraw before the last day of the Nicea Term in December may receive a 40 percent tuition refund.
  • Those who withdraw after the last day of the Nicea Term are ineligible for a tuition refund.
  • All registration deposits, including the fixed tuition rate deposit, and all non-tuition fees are non-refundable.
  • All refunds to full-time students are calculated from the total tuition paid to date, less a $50 administrative charge for mid-year or mid-term withdrawals.

 

Payment Per Course

All auditors and students who pay tuition or fees based on our per course rates are subject to the following refund rates and schedules, if they drop or withdraw in accordance with the College’s rules governing drops and withdrawals.

  • Students who officially drop a course on or before Friday of week one in any given term may receive a 75 percent refund for that course, less the regular $5 drop fee.
  • Students who officially drop a course after week one, but before Friday of week two in any given term may receive a 50 percent refund for that course, less the regular $5 drop fee.
  • Students who officially withdraw after week two, but before Friday of week five in any given term may receive a 25 percent tuition refund for that course, less the regular $5 drop fee.
  • Students who withdraw after Friday of week five in any given term are ineligible for tuition refunds.
  • Part-time students who pay their tuition in advance are subject to the same refund policy as full-time students as explained above.
  • Auditors who officially drop a course within the first three days of the term may receive an 80 percent refund for that course, less the regular $5 drop fee.
  • Auditors who officially drop a course after the first three days of the term are ineligible for a refund.
  • All registration deposits, including the Tuition Lock and all non-tuition feeds are non-refundable.

 

Payment Plan

If at any time a student finds it necessary to nullify or modify their tuition agreement made with the college, New Saint Andrews will retroactively (from the beginning of the current academic year) recalculate the total tuition owed based on our per class rates. This allows us to maintain the integrity of our rates to full-time students. This recalculation may result in additional fees payable to the College.
