Financial Aid and Tuition

A college degree is an investment in yourself — one that can lead to new opportunities for personal and professional growth. But we understand you might be anxious about how to pay for school. That’s why we offer a number of financial aid options to help offset the cost of your education.

As an online student, you can receive assistance in the form of:

  • Federal grants
  • Stafford loans
  • PLUS loans
  • Scholarship programs
  • Private sources
  • Student employment opportunities
  • Employer assistance programs

We encourage you to familiarize yourself with and research all of your available options. And please reach out to us with any questions and concerns. We’re here to help.

Enroll at Maryville, and you’ll receive all the resources and support you need to make an informed decision about financial aid. Here are some helpful links to get you started:

Transfer Student Admissions

We welcome transfer students to all of our online programs — and we’ve streamlined the admission process to keep things simple. If you know what program you’d like to study, we’ll check to see if there are any special requirements for admission. We’ve also created a transfer guide to help answer questions you may have along the way.

You’re considered a transfer student if:

  • You have taken college courses from a regionally accredited college or university since graduating from high school or receiving a GED certificate.
  • You have earned an associate degree from an accredited two-year or junior college and are interested in completing your baccalaureate degree.
  • You have a college degree and are pursuing a second undergraduate degree.

Military Student Admissions

Personalized support is at the heart of everything we do at Maryville — especially when it comes to assisting active-duty military personnel, military spouses and dependents, and veterans.

We recognize the sacrifices you’ve made in service to our country, and it’s our aim to serve you throughout your educational journey. We’re here to answer your questions, offer support, and help you navigate the benefits provided under the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Educational Assistance Programs.

Get credit for courses completed in the military.

It’s important that you receive credit for all the work you completed while serving our country. That’s why Maryville partners with the American Council on Education (ACE). Through this relationship, we can evaluate your military courses — and transfer them for college credits.

Maryville’s military students have your back.

When you enroll as a military student at Maryville, you can expect to receive support from our Veterans Student Organization (VSO). This committed group of individuals — which is composed of and operated by veteran students — provides feedback to program instructors and makes recommendations to enhance the curricula and training for veteran professionals.
