Finanicial Aid Scenarios

Financing your education is one of the most significant investments that you and your family will ever make. It is also the most important.

Most families want to invest as little as possible, and get the greatest return. Methodist University students get all of the benefits of a private college education – small classes, individual attention, challenging academics and supportive faculty, to name a few – while reaping the benefits of generous financial aid, which makes Methodist University a great value.

The following financial aid scenarios reflect actual financial aid packages offered to incoming Methodist University students and are intended to give you an idea of the variety and depth of financial aid offerings at MU. Identifying characteristics such as name, hometown and extracurricular activities have been altered to ensure the privacy of our students.
