Financial Overview

St. Matthew’s University offers a tuition that compares very favorably with other veterinary schools (see table below) while also maintaining the rigorous standards that have made it a top choice among international D.V.M. programs.

The average per-year tuition and fees at veterinary schools in the U.S. now exceeds $45,000 for nonresidents. The cost has risen so high that most students must seek additional financing beyond what they can obtain through federal loan programs.

At SMU, the average per-year tuition is more than $10,000 less than the average for nonresidents at U.S. schools. This enables students to complete their education with far less indebtedness. Also, SMU offers the most affordable tuition and fees of any Caribbean D.V.M. program.
