How Much Does it Cost to Attend College Seminary?

The average cost of a college seminarian’s education is approximately $40,000 per year. That includes tuition, room and board, health insurance, and books. At St. Joseph College Seminary, the Diocese pays the room and board costs, one-third of their college tuition, and a modest allowance for books. The seminarian and his family are required to fund the rest of his college expenses through scholarships, financial aid, and student loans.
