At Marquette, we understand that a college education is a significant financial investment for our students and that many families make sacrifices to send their sons and daughters here. We also know that a Marquette education is special. Here, in the Catholic, Jesuit tradition, students are challenged to push boundaries, to lead and to serve, to sharpen their skills and open their hearts. When our graduates leave this campus, they are ready to go out into the world and “Be the Difference.”
Continuing to offer the competitive and transformative education that families have come to expect from Marquette sometimes requires increased resources. Marquette undergraduate parents will soon be receiving a letter from President Michael R. Lovell, Acting Provost Kimo Ah Yun and Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Joel Pogodzinski sharing that the Board of Trustees has approved 2019–20 academic year tuition at $43,350, from $41,290 in 2018–19. Rates for summer school and part-time students are not increasing for 2019–20.
The Board also approved the following graduate and professional program tuition schedules for 2019–20:
- A per-credit increase of $40 in the Graduate School and Graduate School of Management
- A per-credit increase of $30 for graduate students in the College of Education
- An annual tuition increase of $1,560 for students in the School of Dentistry
- An annual tuition increase of $1,380 for full-time students at Marquette University Law School
There is no increase in the student activity fee ($30 per semester), rec and wellness fee ($50 per semester) or UPASS fee ($50 per semester). The Student Health Service Fee was increased $3 per semester ($163 per semester).
Making higher education accessible to families from all backgrounds is part of the very foundation of Marquette. Building on this longstanding tradition, Marquette will continue to dedicate significant resources to scholarship and financial aid for our students and their families. Families that currently receive federal financial aid should complete their FAFSA by Jan. 15, 2019.
