How much does MVNU cost?

"I had already picked a public university, but then I changed my mind. My dad had heard that MVNU was more affordable, and we only had one month to get everything together. This was all God's doing — between financial aid and scholarships, I paid significantly less at MVNU than what I was going to pay at the public university."- Marissa L. Kalina, '19

How we make it affordable

To answer that, let’s first discuss STICKER PRICE vs. ACTUAL COST

Sticker Price

*Includes Tuition, Room & Board, and $250 Student Fee


These are gifts from individuals, institutions, companies, and communities. You don’t ever have to pay back a scholarship award. Remember: Endowed scholarships from MVNU require a new application every year.


These are financial awards from the federal and state governments. These are awarded to students automatically and based on the info from the FAFSA (get that done ASAP). You also don’t pay back a grant. 


These are the ones that you borrow and then pay back. Generally, the payment isn’t due until you graduate or you’re enrolled at MVNU for less than half-time hours. Make sure you apply early because this process takes time.

Actual Price

The amount of aid will vary depending on your specific financial and family situation. 

The average aid package for an MVNU student was $26,215 for the 2022-2023 school year. 

Once you apply for admission + financial aid, we’ll be able to calculate your actual cost.
