SGU estimates the cost to, excluding airfare, to be about $45,000 a year. This is more than US federal student loan limits, so if you can’t pay in cash, you’ll probably need to find private student loans to make up the difference in tuition and expenses.

Tips for getting student loans

  • It’s a good idea to start shopping for a loan early in the process. 2-3 months before matriculation is not too early.
  • It is possible to qualify for these loans on your own, but more often the successful applicant will come in with a co-signer.
