  • Welcome to Financial Aid

    The Financial Aid office works with each student to make a Franciscan education an affordable reality. We will assemble the best possible financial aid award so you can come to learn and grow here at Franciscan.

    When comparing the cost of higher education, we want you to look at the net price or out of pocket price not just the cost of tuition. We encourage you to check out our Net Price Calculator, or better yet, apply to Franciscan.
