St. Catherine University has set tuition, fee, room, and board rates for the 2020-21 academic year. 
 
Determination of tuition, fee, room, and board rates has been approved by the Board of Trustees. St. Catherine University is committed to providing an excellent education with the personal attention our students have come to expect and value. Being mindful of the economic realities our students and their families experience, we are advancing the minimum increases necessary to provide a high quality St. Catherine education. 
 
Setting the tuition, fee, room and board rates followed a careful review of our resources and expenses in relation to our mission and strategic plan goals to maintain and advance our academic priorities and the student experience while preserving fiscal integrity. The University takes great care to evaluate the most essential issues, including the local and national economy; maintaining and improving facilities; enhancing existing and developing new programs; student financial need and the financial aid budget; attracting and retaining high-quality faculty and staff; and remaining competitive in relevant higher education markets.

For the 2020-21 academic year, the University is pleased to announce we are keeping the standard double room and platinum meal plan rates unchanged from last year. View room and meal plan requirements, policies, and rates. Please contact the Residence Life Office (x6617) for more information on residence halls and details on how to sign up for on-campus housing.

Technology is a key component of the infrastructure necessary to provide the desired curriculum and student experience. The technology fee helps defray some of the annual cost of licensing and maintenance for our core student software and technology services including the network, student enterprise system, course management system, and various other systems.  These systems are designed to improve academic success and student services on campus such as advising, degree audit, and mobile apps for student class information, schedule, and grades. This year, as a result of planned technology improvements, we are increasing the technology fee $100 each term for all students who register for classes.

In the past year we have replaced our wifi network with a new more secure state of the art system, launched a new application for students to find “how to” information and forms to request services, setup a number of student high tech group study and video recording rooms, launched a new services platform we call Student Success at St. Kate’s, and opened our bustling Tech Hub offering loaner equipment and support services to students. During the upcoming two years we plan to:

  • Integrate and enhance our degree planning, course planning, and registration tools to better align our course offerings to the needs and wants of our students;
  • Advance our classroom capabilities through updated technology in the classrooms and improved tools for faculty to help students learn in new and engaging ways;
  • Upgrade our printers to enable access from anywhere with the swipe of a badge;  
  • Launch additional phases of Student Success at St. Kate’s to deliver services with personal attention and increased responsiveness.  This includes making it easier for students to engage with student services such as career development, advising, counseling, and other support services as needed;
  • Further security enhancements to protect and inform students on safe digital practices, and more.

St. Catherine University continues to invest in academic technology resources that provide powerful communication, collaboration, and interactive tools to build digital skills for students to be successful in class and beyond graduation.

Please see above for a complete listing of the 2020-21 tuition and fee rates.
 
OTA Online program tuition rates are effective fall semester. All other rates are effective beginning Summer term May 27, 2020.

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.
