Marymount Value

Investing in a college education is one of the most important decisions a person can make, and it’s absolutely crucial that your investment be a smart one. Marymount’s steady commitment to making high-quality instruction affordable for students and their families makes this University an exceptional educational value.

A Modest Investment…

Students and their families often experience “sticker shock” when they look at tuition rates for private colleges and universities. Many people are unaware that attending a private college often costs as much or less than attending a comparable public institution. This is because private institutions like Marymount award substantial grant and scholarship money that simply isn’t available at their state-supported counterparts.


On average, a private college gives institutional scholarships and grants to twice as many students as a comparable public institution.

Marymount University is no exception. Last year, MU undergraduates received nearly $16 million in free aid for tuition, room and board, and other expenses. Combine Marymount’s generous aid with an annual cost of attendance that is $5,400 below the national average for private universities, and it’s easy to see why so many students choose Marymount for its affordability.


71% of Marymount undergraduates received institutional grants or scholarships last year.

With Extraordinary Returns
Marymount University prides itself on its small class sizes and dedicated teaching faculty, which are harder to come by at large public institutions. This personalized academic experience enables 90% of our students to secure a professional position within 6 months of graduation, with more than half accepting job offers before they graduate.


More than 4 out of 5 Marymount alumni work in professions that are related to their undergraduate major.

Marymount graduates are also well positioned to pursue further education. Marymount students have gone on to earn graduate and professional degrees from Harvard University, the University of Notre Dame, Johns Hopkins University, and the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, among others. And with $4,500 less debt than the average private college graduate, Marymount alumni have the advantage of being financially ready to pursue graduate study.


More than half of all Marymount alumni pursue further education within 5 years of graduation.
