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

3.85 Average Rating
Marist is expensive, especially for me as I went pretty far out of state. However, you get what you pay for; Marist is known for giving its students every resource available. the internship program is especially helpful, you can be sure that they will help you find the perfect internship (as many as you have time for!) , and that they will assist you in getting a job in the field of your interest.

Marist is pricey. But the type of education your receiving is second to none. After one semester, I am confident that Marist will prepare me for the real world. For the money your spending, your getting the best professors, the best resources, having the most fun and meeting friends of a lifetime.
Nicholas from New Haven, CT
Though burdened by the reduction of my financial aid, I do believe that Marist gives a good bang for the buck. As a private school, it is a good 10k less than other private schools, while offering quality education. Adjunct professors are abundant in Marist; if Marist doesn't house a professor good enough to teach they course, they go out to find a professor who is. Internships are required for graduation and the school helps hook students up, which often lead to jobs right out of getting a diploma.
The housing of Marist isn't shabby either, especially as you progress in years. Townhouses with singles are soon to come for upperclassmen, allowing you to choose your own meal plans. Laundry is also free, which is a magical thing.

i was offered a fair amount of financial aid, which definitely encouraged my decision to go here.
Tara from Westbrook, CT
College is what you make of it, and therefore what you make it worth. If you take advantage of everything Marist has to offer, it is certainly worth the cost.
