Saint Joseph University (PA): Early Action deadline is November 15th

As you seek to refer your students to best fit colleges and universities you probably ask yourself ‘what makes this school different from the rest?’ At Saint Joseph’s, we’ll tell you: ‘It’s the magis.’ Magis is a Jesuit ideal and Latin word that roughly translates to “more” or “greater” – as in doing more, giving more and becoming more of what you are meant to be. It’s a culture that’s ingrained in our community. You might say it’s in our DNA.

If you have students who are interested in realizing their potential and using their talents for the benefit of others, we would love to hear from them. Our early action decision application deadline is November 15. Details about the admissions process can be found by visiting

This past year we received 8,300 applications and enrolled 1350 students for the Class of 2018. Below you will find the academic profile for this most recent group of admitted students. We hope you will use this information to refer qualified students for the Class of 2019:

Middle 50% GPA = 3.20 – 3.90/4.0
Middle 50% SAT = 1100 – 1280/1600
Middle 50% ACT= 23 – 28 (composite)

Saint Joseph’s offers competitive academic and merit scholarships. Students are automatically considered for these during the admission process. In addition to these awards there are a number of unique academic scholarships for which students may apply. These include, but are not limited to, our full-tuition Dean’s Scholarship and the John P. McNulty Scholars Program for women who declare a major and plan to pursue careers in the fields of natural science, mathematics or computer science. For more information about scholarships, go to

We also invite you to take a minute to learn more about our ASPIRE program and SCHOLARS Apprentice program through the Kinney Center for Autism Education and Support, which would be ideal for any students interested in education. These are all held on campus at The Kinney Center for Autism Education and Support.

If you have any questions regarding the application and scholarship process, please contact the admissions counselor for your region. A list of our counseling staff can be found by clicking here.

Thank you for all you do for your students and Saint Joseph’s University.
