Cost of Attendance Calculators and Estimators for Marylhurst

With the recent decision to close Marylhurst University by the end of 2018, the information on our Tuition and Aid pages may not be current. We are reviewing and making updates as needed. If you have a question about the accuracy of information contained here, please contact our Office of Financial Aid.

We know that deciding to attend college is one of the most important investment decisions you will ever make. We also know that finding a way to pay for college can be a challenge, so we are committed to working with you to help make your education affordable.

Estimated Education Expenses

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.

Item Estimated Expense
Books $55 per course credit
Room & Board * $4,400 per term
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.

Cost of Attendance Calculator (for Admitted Students)

If you have received an official award letter from the Marylhurst Office of Financial Aid, you can use the Cost-of-Attendance calculator to determine whether your financial aid will cover your full cost of attending the university. Please use the information included in your award letter to calculate your total cost of attendance.
