Financial aid can be used to assist you with education expenses beyond tuition and fees. All schools are required to use a "standard" budget of estimated expenses when determining federal financial aid eligibility. The Office of Financial Aid reviews these estimated expenses annually. Expenses listed below are for the 2015-16 academic year:
Books = $55 per credit
*Room and board = $3,500 per term (for students not living with parents)
Personal expenses = $650 per term
Transportation = $500 per term
On a case-by-case basis we can add documented day care/child care expenses to a student's budget.
* Estimated area housing costs. Marylhurst is a commuter university; student housing is not available on campus.
