The challenge today is finding a quality education that's affordable.

At the University of Mary, we've rolled up our sleeves to make it possible to afford a quality private education. In fact, the University of Mary is as affordable as UND and NDSU.

According to the U.S. Department of Education's College Scorecard, when scholarships and other aid are factored in our students graduate with LESS DEBT than at either UND or NDSU.
