If your child goes to college, he or she will earn an average of $20,000 more per year than kids who don't.

It isn't just about the money, but it's often true that money stands in between a good student and a great education.

Not anymore.

If your child is a U.S. citizen, has a 3.0 GPA or higher, and meets our financial need requirements, he or she could get free tuition at the College of St. Scholastica.

CSSyes means a private, Catholic, four-year, nationally ranked, liberal-arts education.
For free.

As a 103-year-old educational institution in Duluth, MN, The College of St. Scholastica is ranked as one of the top in the nation by US News & World Report.

Our classes are small; the majority of our faculty have the highest degrees in their field; and because there are just 13 students to every professor, your son or daughter is guaranteed the personal attention of their instructors.

This means they'll solve problems creatively, think critically and learn continuously. And that means they'll go farther and earn more than you ever thought possible.

Apply for CSSyes now and help your child earn the education they deserve.
