Financial Aid


A Maryville University education is an excellent value. With our emphasis on liberal arts study and professional preparation, we offer small classes, excellent academic programs, outstanding faculty, and close proximity to internship and employment opportunities in St. Louis.

There are many financial aid opportunities to help offset the cost of a private university education. Our goal is to enable any eligible student to attend Maryville. At Maryville University, financial aid is available in the form of grants, loans, scholarships and work-study programs. Both merit-based and need-based assistance is available.
