Tuition and Financial Aid

Online Program Fees

A college degree is an investment in yourself and your future. At Maryville University, we strive to offer value and give you the best possible return on your investment. It’s why we were named as one of the best values in private college education by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance.

And with our undergraduate program tuition freeze for the 2018-19 academic year, we’re doing our part to bring you a high-quality education at an affordable price.

In addition, we offer a number of financial aid options to help you offset the cost of your college degree. That way, you can start earning your degree with confidence, and you can focus on your educational success — not financial concerns.
