    There is no getting around it-MVNu is not cheap by any means. The 2018-2019 total direct cost is $29,244. However, I don't think a single student pays the full listed price. Financial aid is a must and they are fairly generous with what they give out. This includes merit-based scholarships based on high school GPA and ACT/SAT scores. Most, if not all, students receive several thousand dollars in this type of aid. If you're looking for strong academic programs, and a faith-centered community MVNU may be well worth it. Leave no stone unturned when seeking out aid - including athletics, honors, and endowed scholarships.

    This depends on how much you are getting in scholarship money. If you don't feel strongly about going to a Christian college and you have to pay out of pocket, there are probably better private schools. However, if you plan on applying for financial aid, they tend to be pretty generous.

    Most everyone qualifies for some sort of merit/financial aid. I have discovered that this school teaches more than preparing for a life work; it is making it purposeful through service. More than anything, the close and loving community and personal growth I have experienced makes this school worth it.

    The school's motto is Life Changing, and one's experience on campus will definitely be worth the money. (Maybe or maybe not if you are paying the sticker price, but I don't know of anyone who is doing that.) As a freshman, I already feel the difference this school has made in my life, and I can't wait to see how it will continue to shape me in the upcoming years.
