Cost of AttendanceCost of Attendance

The cost of attending Marywood University includes both direct costs and indirect costs. Direct costs are those that you will be billed for like tuition, fees, room and board.  Indirect costs such as rent for an off-campus apartment, books, or transportation to campus are all associated with going to college but will never appear on your bill from the University Cashier’s Office.  Our indirect costs used in cost of attendance are based on the typical expenses of a Marywood University student. Your indirect costs may vary from these averages.

Unusual expenses

If you have unusual expenses such as childcare for your dependent children or unreimbursed expenses related to a disability, you should complete a Budget Appeal Form and attach documentation of those expenses.  The form and documentation should be submitted to the Financial Aid Office.  We may be able to provide additional financial assistance to help with those costs that are required for you to attend school.  Generally, only loan funding will be available to cover this cost.

Buying a computer

Marywood University does not require students to purchase computers, but you may wish to purchase one for your academic work.  If you have applied for financial aid and want to buy a computer, the Financial Aid Office can include that cost when considering you for financial aid.  You should complete a Budget Appeal Form and attach documentation of the purchase price.  The form and documentation should be submitted to the Financial Aid Office.    Generally, only loan funding will be available to cover this cost.

Health Insurance

All full-time undergraduate and graduate students are required to have health insurance.  Students that need to purchase the University-endorsed insurance may have those costs added to their cost of attendance if the fee appears on their bill from the Cashier’s Office.   Generally, only loan funding will be available to cover this cost.
