Paying for an MU Education

As a public university, we make the commitment to stay affordable. Coming to MU could save a Pennsylvania resident more than $21,000 annually compared to a private institution. Additionally, over 91% of our students receive some sort of financial assistance such as federal or state grants, scholarships, work-study, or loans.  Visit our Grants and Scholarships page for more information. For detailed information regarding tuition and fees visit our Office of Student Accounts web page.

Financial Aid

The Office of Financial Aid offers professional staff to help you and your family find the best way to finance your education. Student financial aid programs are available for our students through various sources but it starts with completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (known as FASFA). Our FASFA deadline is March 15.


We have scholarships ranging from $100 up to full tuition. Our scholarship process is competitive and offers the very best students an opportunity to be honored for their accomplishments. Visit our Grants and Scholarships. All students who are admitted to Millersville are considered for merit-based scholarships.

Other Sources

Other sources of aid come in the form of work study, external scholarships, tuition waivers, federal student loans, and alternative loans. Be sure to do your research and ask questions about these sources and any others you may find.
