Thank you for considering Santa Clara University.
We recognize that students and their families are challenged by tight economic conditions and strive to achieve the highest-quality education possible at a price they can afford. Santa Clara University undergraduate students received an estimated $76 million in grant aid from various sources, reflecting our ongoing commitment to making a Santa Clara education accessible to deserving students.
Our financial aid packages can decrease cost substantially – with 83 percent of our students receiving some form of aid from scholarships, grants, loans and campus employment. When compared to some public universities having an average time to graduation of 5+ years, Santa Clara may actually be a more cost effective education.

The intrinsic value of a Santa Clara education goes beyond the initial investment of tuition and related costs. Santa Clara graduates make immediate, measurable contributions as they enter or advance in their professions, and are sought by business, industry, nonprofits and government.

Notable Santa Clara alumni can be found at the highest levels of government, as CEOs of Fortune 500s, among the top innovative minds in technology, and as leaders in the fields of public service, the arts, education and research.
