Tuition and aid for undergraduate students

Tuition and aid

How much does it cost to attend Messiah College?...less than you may think!

Tuition at any college is not what it may seem at first glance. That’s the sticker price—and it can be a bit jarring! But as you look deeper into the cost of a college education, you’ll soon discover that the actual price equals the “sticker price” MINUS a package of financial aid—consisting of loans, grants, scholarships and work programs—that the College’s financial aid office will put together for you, making a college education much more affordable than you originally may have thought it would be.
