Early decision applications are “binding”, which means applicants commit to attend Sattler if accepted. This choice demonstrates a commitment to the mission of the College and increases the likelihood of being admitted. Choosing to apply early decreases the waiting time to hear back about a decision, takes away the need to apply to colleges that are not an applicant’s first choice, gives more time to plan for the move, and provides applicants more flexibility to consider other colleges if they are not accepted. We encourage prospective students who align with Sattler’s purpose and are zealous to attend to submit an early application. Click here to see the early decision deadline for this application season.

College tuition costs approximately $9,000 per year. While the calculated value of this tuition is far greater, generous donors have subsidized a large part of its cost.

No, the tuition cost is the same regardless of where you are from.
Currently, the College is not certified as a Title IV institution recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. As a result, Sattler is ineligible to accept federal financial aid in Title IV programs which includes Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Federal Subsidized and Unsubsidized Direct Loans etc.
The cost of living will vary per student depending on factors such as room and board decisions, health insurance, food, books, transportation, personal expenses etc. The cost of room and board makes up the majority of cost of living and the College is actively exploring options to drive this as low as possible.
Yes! We offer merit-based and need-based monetary awards that can range from paying for a portion of tuition to fully funding the costs associated with a college education.
