We know the pandemic and other national events continue to have an impact on our St. Catherine community. The economic and financial challenges faced by many of our students and families remain foremost in our minds. Thank you for continuing to invest in your future by choosing St. Kate’s.

To aid in your planning, we are sharing the University’s tuition, fee, room, and board rates for the 2021-2022 academic year. The University has determined the tuition and fee rates necessary to meet our budget and operating needs for the fiscal year and advanced the minimum increases required to continue delivery of excellent education and services for our students. We encourage students to apply for financial aid by completing the FAFSA and submitting required materials as early as possible to ensure full consideration for financial aid. For more information or if your financial circumstances have changed, visit Financial Aid or email

Tuition, fee, room, and board rates can be found on the Student Accounts webpage along with other student finance information and a Tuition Frequently Asked Questions. OTA Online program tuition rates are effective fall semester; all other rates are effective beginning with the summer term on June 1, 2021. 

Following a multi-year review of tuition structures and adoption of the Academic Master Plan, the tuition structure for the College for Women is transitioning from a per-credit to a banded model for newly admitted students. With banded tuition, students will pay one rate for a set range of credits per term. Beginning Fall 2021, new first-year and new transfer students admitted to the College for Women who enroll full-time (12-18 credit hours) will be billed for fall and spring semester under the banded tuition structure. Returning College for Women students will continue under their existing per-credit tuition structure, as will College for Adult and Graduate College students. More information is available in our Banded Tuition Frequently Asked Questions

Technology and student activity fees remain unchanged for 2021-22. The Nursing Clinical and Assessment Fee has been replaced by the Nursing Program Fee, which will be charged each semester following admission to the Nursing major to more evenly distribute fees across the program of study and help provide predictable expenses for College for Women and College for Adult students.

For students living on campus, the standard double room rate will be $2,850 per semester, and the Platinum meal plan will be $1,950 per semester. Residence Life has the full listing of room and meal plan requirements, policies, and rates. Please contact the Residence Life at for more information on residence halls and details on how to sign up for on-campus housing.

Payments and KatePay

Student Accounts distributes all statements electronically using KatePay. Students access KatePay by going to the Student page and clicking on the KatePay link listed under Student Self Service. Parents and other third parties may log into KatePay to view statements and make payments if they have been set up as authorized users by the student. KatePay is the easiest way to make payments to your student account, but you can also pay in person or by mail, and only using a check, money order or cashier’s check. Credit card payments cannot be made in person, over the phone or via mail or email. This is a security measure that ensures confidentiality of your payment information. If your tuition and fees are billed to an outside agency, we have a third-party billing option.
