Saint Gregory’s University is a private, coeducational, Catholic liberal arts university located in Shawnee, Oklahoma with a branch campus in Tulsa. It was founded in 1875 by Benedictine monks, Fr. Isidore Robot, O.S.B. and Bro. Dominic Lambert, O.S.B. as the Sacred Heart Mission which later became an abbey in 1876. In 1877, with the permission of the Vatican and later from the State of Oklahoma, Sacred Heart College was founded. Unfortunately, a fire in 1901 completely destroyed both the school and the monastery. In 1910, the monks accepted the invitation of the town of Shawnee and began constructing the Catholic University of Oklahoma and St. Gregory’s Abbey. The school opened in 1915 and changed its name to St. Gregory’s College in 1922. In 1997, the college became a Bachelor’s degree-granting university.

Today, there are 697 students enrolled at the university pursuing either an Associate of Arts, a Bachelor of Arts, or a Bachelor of Science degree in any one of five basic programs that include business, humanities, natural science, social science or theology. With a student to faculty ratio of 9 to 1, students are assured of a focused, one-on-one interaction with their mentors.

Estimated cost of attendance of fulltime students attending Saint Gregory’s University for academic year 2009-2010 is US$22,698 for those living on campus and US$16,294 for those living off campus. For on-campus resident students, the cost of attendance is broken down into tuition and fees and room and board. To make sure students are able to pay for their cost of attendance, the university is extending financial aid in the form of loans, grants, scholarships and work-study arrangements.
