Financial Aid

The primary purpose of financial aid is to provide assistance to students who otherwise would be unable to pursue their education. The basic premise of financial aid programs is that the primary responsibility for meeting college costs lies with the student and parents. When the family is unable to meet the cost of attendance, the Office of Financial Aid will do its best to provide the necessary aid. The Office of Financial Aid at Seton Hall University is dedicated to assisting students and their families with any issues that may arise as they work through the financial aid process.


All students must apply yearly for financial aid. To be considered for the full range of financial aid available, students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is available October 1 each year. The processed results of the FAFSA must be received by SHU on or before January 15 to meet our priority date. Our school code is 002632.


Furthermore, merit scholarships are awarded upon admission. The application deadline for most special scholarships is January 15th. Please find our list of special scholarships here:

Academics & Athletics

The oldest and largest academic unit at Seton Hall University, the College of Arts and Sciences provides a learning, teaching and research environment that informs and promotes the University’s Catholic mission. Based on a liberal arts course of study that is grounded in the Catholic intellectual tradition, the College fosters a value-centered, technologically enhanced education that enables the personal and professional development of its students.


Established in 1950, the Stillman School of Business at Seton Hall University maintains professional accreditation from The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business — AACSB International. The School is also among the select group that has achieved both business and accounting accreditation, a distinction earned by less than one percent of the world’s business schools. The School integrates technology and core business skills into challenging undergraduate, graduate and unique dual-degree programs, and is committed to enriching each student’s life through an ethics-centered education focusing on transforming concepts into business practice. Known for academic excellence, the Stillman School has received national recognition from Bloomberg Businessweek, US News & World Report and The Princeton Review.


Just minutes from Manhattan, the College of Communication and The Arts is a top choice for those seeking a high quality, interdisciplinary education rooted in the liberal arts that embraces today’s digital culture and is guided by our Catholic mission.


The School of Diplomacy and International Relations prepares students from around the world to become leaders in a global society. Its innovative graduate and undergraduate programs provide students with the critical skills and knowledge needed for international careers in public service, business, law and the nonprofit sector. Through a unique alliance with the United Nations Association of the United States of America and the United Nations Foundation, students are exposed to today’s leaders and policymakers while experiencing diplomacy at work.


For those interested in furthering their education or professional psychology careers, the College of Education and Human Services provides a unique, socially-conscious setting and nationally recognized, accredited campus-based, off-site, and online programs, taught by skilled practitioners, that enable students to succeed as teachers, administrators and psychology professionals.


For current and prospective nurses, the College of Nursing provides a wide variety of undergraduate and nationally ranked graduate programs that have prepared students for leadership in the nursing industry since 1937. Unlike its competitors, the College of Nursing is a pioneer in evidence-based practice, servant leadership and cutting-edge technology, and encourages its students to integrate their values into their daily nursing practice.


Immaculate Conception Seminary is a House of Formation for the Roman Catholic priesthood and the School of Theology of Seton Hall University. As a School of Theology, the Seminary provides: a theological and philosophical foundation for men and women pursuing undergraduate and graduate studies; a theological foundation and a pastoral and spiritual formation for men and women preparing for ministries among the people of God; a theological foundation for men and women desiring to pursue doctoral studies; and varied opportunities for continuing theological education.

Student Life

While Seton Hall enjoys a big reputation, our campus community is also close-knit and inclusive. Students, faculty and staff come from around the world, bringing with them a kaleidoscope of experiences and perspectives, creating a diverse yet unified campus environment. As a student, you’re always learning – whether you’re joining a Greek organization, spinning discs at our award-winning radio station, WSOU, writing for the student newspaper, The Setonian, or serving as a member of our Student Government Association. From student media to sports to professional societies to religious organizations, our 100-plus clubs and organizations run the gamut.

Campus Housing

Students who wish to live in university sponsored housing must complete a housing application and pay a housing deposit. Housing is not guaranteed; however, the Housing and Residence Life Department reserves 1,150 beds each fall semester for new (incoming and transfer) students and 1,150 beds for returning students.
