The tuition freeze applies to all undergraduate and most graduate programs
To create greater access to higher education and extend significant cost savings to students and their families, Maryville University has announced a tuition freeze for all undergraduate and most graduate programs for the 2018-2019 academic year.
While many universities locally and across the country have announced tuition increases ranging from 3 to 10 percent, Maryville’s unprecedented enrollment growth and financial vitality allow the University to fully operate—and continue to innovate—at current tuition levels.
“By every measure, earning a degree is the single best investment individuals can make in their future success,” said President Mark Lombardi, PhD. “Maryville has announced a tuition freeze for the 2018-2019 academic year in direct response to the rising cost of higher education. We want to ensure deserving students have the opportunity to achieve their academic and career goals.”
Full-time, undergraduate tuition at Maryville is currently $26,070. As part of the University’s One Fee program, students pay a single annual fee of $2,400. The OneFee program includes all course materials, books and technology a student may access. Graduate and online student fees, which vary by program and platform, will also remain at current rates.
“Maryville has developed a revolutionary new vision for higher education, one that empowers students to pursue an individualized path to learning and success,” Lombardi said. “Students embrace this revolution because it is a much greater reflection of who they are and their reality. It’s one of the reasons our enrollment sets new records every year and why our retention rate is so high.”
Maryville has been recognized as one of the top three fastest-growing private universities in the nation by the Chronicle of Higher Education. Over the past decade, Maryville’s enrollment has doubled, five academic programs have been nationally ranked, and 97 percent of graduates have a job or are enrolled in advanced education programs within six months of graduation. In addition, the University continues to develop key partnerships with strategic corporate entities such as Apple, Salesforce and Pearson to strengthen curriculum and enhance learning experiences.
Along with the tuition freeze, strategic fiscal management has allowed Maryville to invest in a wide range of valuable academic resources and initiatives:
- The Cyber Fusion Center, a state-of-the-art space where students work with more than 150 non-profit client organizations nationally to help ensure data protection;
- The second phase of Saints Hall—Maryville’s newest residence hall—which is set to open in Fall 2018;
- New technology-rich learning spaces across campus that emphasize Maryville’s focus on personalized and collaborative learning;
- Continued investment in faculty hiring and ongoing, paid professional development for faculty; and
- The hiring of additional life coaches to ensure a holistic approach to helping students achieve personal, academic and career success.
