Online, Evenings and Weekends – Classes That Fit Your Busy Schedule
We understand that for most people, taking a class between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. is challenging – especially if you have a full-time job or parenting responsibilities. We’ve designed our course schedule with this in mind. Most of our classes are offered in the evenings, on the weekends or online. In addition, most of our courses include a combination of on-campus meetings with online coursework so our students average about one campus meeting per week per class.

Scholarships and Financial Aid – Funding Your Education
One of the biggest benefits of Marylhurst University is our community of supportive alumni and donors. For more than 123 years, Marylhurst graduates have been making an impact on the northwest community and beyond. They don’t forget their Marylhurst experience and often give back to support the next generation of MU.
These generous donations turn into scholarships for our students. We offer one of the most extensive scholarships for Phi Theta Kappa members (community college honors society) recognizing their academic success. Many of our graduate programs – like the M.B.A. – offer scholarships to help our graduate students fund their education. In addition, we offer a military scholarship for active and veteran military members. Every student who applies to Marylhurst is automatically considered for scholarship opportunities. Learn more about our scholarships.
Financial Aid and Financial Management
Beyond scholarships, our students are encouraged to pursue federal financial aid to help manage the funding of their education. Our Office of Financial Aid is always available to help answer questions, provide guidance and access to resources. Marylhurst also partners with a program called SALT, which offers free financial management resources, like how to manage loan debt or search for additional scholarships.
