Saint Peter's University

The special character of Saint Peters University is defined by its Jesuit Catholic heritage, size, diversity, location, student life, and affordability. One of 28 U.S. Jesuit institutions and the only Jesuit university in NJ, Saint Peters is committed to academic excellence and to developing graduates to learn, to lead and to serve society. With a ratio of one faculty to thirteen students, the university is ideally sized with a total enrollment of approximately 3,400 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students. Half of the freshman class resides on campus. Our remarkably diverse students originate from around U.S. and more than 60 countries. While providing personal attention, Saint Peters is large enough to offer 50+ majors, an Honors Program, internships, service learning, study abroad, a Washington semester, the Guarini Institute for Government Leadership, and five year bachelor/masters degree programs. The Jersey City campus is on 25 acres in the heart of the second largest city in New Jersey, and just 12 minutes by train from the cultural and financial resources of New York City. Campus life is enhanced by 70 plus student-run organizations and 19 NCAA Division I teams. Committed to affordability, Saint Peters offers tuition valued as one of the most cost-efficient and comparable to the cost of attending a public university; 98% of students receive financial aid and the average award is over $23,000/year. Scholarship for some students may be valued up to $100,000 for four years. Recently Saint Peter's was recognized as 5th in the Nation for Colleges that Add Value and 8th in the Nation for helping students increase their economic upward mobility.
