Saint Leo University
Founded in 1889, Saint Leo University is a top rated, private university located in Tampa Bay, Florida. We offer our students an ideal college experience—from our leading-edge academics with over 50 programs to our commitment to the Benedictine core values. We’re all about relationships—relationships that help you grow as a person while preparing you for success in a high-demand career. As a Saint Leo University student, you join a growing network of alumni who are making a difference for their family, community, and country. Less than an hour from the vibrancy of downtown Tampa, our peaceful campus is surrounded by rolling green hills, dazzling orange groves, and clear-water lakes. As the safest campus in Florida, we pride ourselves on providing students with the peace of mind to focus on their academic experience.
Saint Leo University has 2,200 undergraduate students on our University Campus, with a student to faculty ratio of 14:1. Students receive personal attention in their small classes, and can even work on research projects with their professors. There are over 60 clubs and organizations, as well as NCAA Division II Athletics.
Saint Leo offers academic merit scholarships for undergraduate students, to help make a private U.S. education affordable and accessible to students from across the globe. Undergraduate scholarships range up to $17,500 USD per year and are awarded at the time of admission.
International presence on Saint Leo’s campus has more than doubled over the past 10 years. Saint Leo is home to more than 550 international students from around the world—that’s one in four students on campus! The Center for Global Engagement is grounded in providing academic excellence, cultural awareness, and a worldwide lens to students, serving as one of the most diverse campus communities at a private university in the United States.
Saint Leo University emphasizes a holistic review of students’ credentials for admission and we believe that factors other than standardized test scores can be predictors of a student’s potential to succeed in college. Saint Leo University has developed a test-optional policy that does not require undergraduate applicants to submit SAT or ACT scores as part of the admissions process, and graduate students are not required to submit the GRE or GMAT.
