Undergraduate Tuition & Costs

A Catholic, Private School Education at an Affordable Rate

Tuition at the University of Mary is just over half the average cost of private colleges across the country. When you factor in that 99% of undergraduates on the Mary campus receive some form of financial aid, you’ll understand why Mary is one of the smartest investments you can make in yourself — for life.

We estimate that – for the 2021-2022 academic year – our first-year students will pay $8,216 on average for one full year of tuition and fees.

Options and Opportunities to Make Informed Decisions

Our students have a wide range of options in areas such as Residence Halls and Meal Plans, so the actual cost of attendance will vary depending on your choices. 

Also, we hope you’ll join us at one of our upcoming Visit Days, which includes a financial aid and costs orientation. We guide prospective students and their families, step-by-step, through the financial aid process and answer any questions related to tuition and cost.
