Welcome to the Office of Financial Aid

A college education is one of the most important investments you will ever make. At the College of Saint Elizabeth, we believe that students should have access to a quality college education.

Access is what our financial aid program is all about, and we are committed to working with students and families to help make a CSE education affordable. The Office of Financial Aid will help you and your family develop a customized financial plan.
 

The Office of Financial Aid adheres to the regulations set forth by the U.S. Department of Education as well as the New Jersey Higher Education Student Assistance Authority regarding the administration of their financial aid programs.

A college education is one of the most important investments you will ever make. Most significantly, the U.S. Census Bureau of Labor and Statistics reports that over the working life of adults, those who have earned a bachelor's degree will earn $2.1 million, as opposed to $1.2 million earned by those with only a high school diploma.

CSE is committed to providing an affordable and enriching experience for students. Through scholarships and grants, the College partners with families in making this important investment in your future:

  • One third of CSE's annual budget is dedicated to student aid programs
  • More than 90% of undergraduate students receive some form of assistance either through CSE institutional scholarships, state and federal funding, or private scholarships.
  • The average incoming full-time undergraduate student receives over $33,000 in Gift Aid.

The Office of Financial Aid will assist you and your family develop a customized financial plan and help assure you receive all the aid for which you qualify.
