Costs and Financial Aid

At Manchester University, we do everything possible to make sure a quality education is accessible, and we’re known for it. That’s why we’ve been ranked a “Best Value” school in the Midwest by U.S.News & World Report for years. We pride ourselves on being a place of affordable excellence and we back that up with great scholarship packages and a focus on outcomes.

Your investment in Manchester is a wise investment. We guarantee it.

College is one of the most important investments you’ll ever make, and at Manchester we invest in you and back it up with our Triple Guarantee.

Triple Guarantee

Guarantee #1
Financial aid for full-time students.

Orange Bar
100% of our students receive financial aid. We don’t accept everyone, and those we do accept have done enough to earn financial aid.

Green Bar
We give generously.
The average size of our financial aid package is about $23,000 per student. Most of that is gift aid that doesn't have to
be paid back.

Yellow Bar
The average Manchester student graduates with $29,958 of debt. Since college graduates earn an average of $1.4 million more over their lifetimes, it’s a small investment.

Graduation within four years for all full-time students

Blue Bar

Guarantee #3

97.1% of 2014 graduates were employed or enrolled in graduate school within six months of graduation from Manchester. That percentage is pretty typical for us over the
past decade!
