Take Advantage of Every Financial Resource
There are many ways to make your University of Mary education affordable. Our financial aid staff will work closely with you to ensure you take advantage of all available resources to make your Mary degree a reality.
Here’s your important first step:
- Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid ( FAFSA) anytime after October 1, but the sooner you complete the application, the more aid you could be eligible to receive.

Then, explore the scholarships, loans, grants, employment and work-study programs that will make your Mary education an investment for life.
Here are the five types of financial aid available to Mary students:
- Scholarships. Scholarships are awarded for academic merit and other considerations. Scholarships reduce the amount of tuition you will owe and don’t have to be repaid.
