Types of Aid

Financial aid options at Messiah University

We are committed to making Messiah accessible and affordable for all students and their families.

We do that through a variety of financial aid opportunities—including merit-based aid (like scholarships), need-based aid (like grants, loans and student employment) and tuition discounts. One hundred percent of first-year students at Messiah receive aid (the average financial aid package for first-year students is $26,241 [not including PLUS or other alternative loans]), demonstrating our commitment to helping families identify and obtain financial aid resources and opportunities that make a nationally ranked Christian education attainable.

Messiah University has a partnership with RaiseMe. Click here to learn more about how you can earn micro-scholarships.
