Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
Don't let the tuition fool you. Over 95% of the students here get some kind of aid from the college. And its worth it anyway, the people are great, the professors are ridiculously intelligent, and not to be cliche, but the city of Marietta is quite charming, as is the campus itself.
Thomas from Falls Church, VA
It's a little expensive but you get a lot here. Like free laundry! All events are free to students too. They offer students a lot. All campus is wi-fi.
Brooke
Although expensive, Almost everyone I know is receiving financial aid. Despite the cost, you really do get what you pay for in this world. College is really less about being in the classroom as it is about the experience. Never again will you be young and able to get this kind of experience. This is worth all the money in the world to me.
Happy Current Student
Marietta College, being a private school, is expensive. The college relies heavily on donations from alumni and other philanthropists. There are many scholarships and grants that are given to students who are enrolled in the college. I must say that even though this college is expensive, I cannot complain about the friends that I have made and the professors that I have worked with.
Ryan from Milford, OH
In my own experience, I have had three internships as a petroleum engineer in three years. I have seen the dividends pay out and because we are such a small college, alumni ties are strong and usually pay off in the way of internships and connections.
Matthew from Dublin, OH
My education here at Marietta has been worth every bit I've paid for it. I receive a great deal of financial aid, as do the majority of my friends. The staff in the financial aid department are very helpful. There are plenty of scholarships and grants available. The education here and experience outside the class room has been truly beneficial.
Laura from Junction City, OH
Marietta is a great college and worth the money it takes to come here.
Megan from Westland, MI
Marietta College is a bit expensive, but I have complete faith that it is a great investment for me. The food service is a bit ridiculous. Other than that, I am pleased with what I am paying for.
