About the Annual Student Fee

For the 2019-20 academic year, St. Louis College of Pharmacy implemented a “one fee” approach to annual student fees wherein a single student fee is assessed to cover costs in a range of areas not covered under tuition, room and board charges.

These areas include, but are not limited to, orientation and graduation; student activities and cultural enrichment; and laboratory expenses.

The Annual Student Fee does not include additional expenses that vary based on options chosen by the student (i.e., housing, parking, etc.).
