Affording Midway University

The true costs of your education can sometimes be difficult to determine. That is why Midway University's Admissions and Financial Aid staff work hard to assist our students with their financial aid planning, processing of federal, state aid, grants, loans, and scholarships.

When comparing schools and costs, students should schedule a time to speak with a Financial Aid counselor to best understand their true costs. The published tuition rates are only there as a starting point and students need to understand what aid they qualify for and what will truly be their out-of-pocket costs versus the published rates.

Each year, 99% of our traditional undergraduate students receive some type of aid to assist with their college expenses. Financial aid options vary by student type and many other factors so our advice is start with completing the FAFSA and then schedule a time to speak with one of our Financial Aid Counselors.

Total Cost of Attendance

The Budgets listed below known as your Cost of Attendance (COA) is the estimated total amount it will cost a student to go to college each year. The COA is a college's total estimated expenses for one year including direct charges such as tuition and fees, housing and food, and indirect charges such as books, supplies, transportation, loan fees, and miscellaneous expenses. A school's cost of attendance is used to determine each student's eligibility for financial aid, such as grants and loans. Very few students pay the full cost of attendance because most receive some type of financial aid. These do not reflect actual billed costs.
