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

This school is worth evert cent, there is alot to do in the area, its not in the middle of nowhere so youll love it GUARENTEED!
Chelsea from Germantown, MD
compared to other colleges and universities, morgan's tuition, room and board, and other fees are much cheaper. the saying, you get what you buy, does not apply to morgan state at all. although the fees are cheaper than a lot of other universities, you are definitely not getting a cheaper education.
Fern from Silver Spring, MD
Out of state tuition can definitely be a pain, but with scholarships I am able to go to school here for next to nothing. The Honors Department is willing to work with you to ensure that your college experience is not filled with financial worries.
Briana from Clarksville, TN
In state tuition is not too expensive but of course it would be better if it was free :)
Maya from Windsor Mill, MD
from the dorms to the classrooms you really get a good bang for your buck. while getting a great education you in end up enjoying everything around you. Morgan State is definitely a school that you want to have on your list with such great programs like in engineering and business, as well as the many extracurricular activities the campus provide for everyone to enjoy.
Ashlee from Annapolis, MD
Definitely worth it for in-state students, not so sure about out-of-state students. If you have a good enough GPA, try getting into the Honors Program. Their standards are high, but the full scholarship is definitely worth the work.
Amanda from Dundalk, MD
I live in Baltimore City, therefore I know a little more about the university and it's surroundings. I always liked Morgan because it is convenience in location and the tuition is reasonable. My mother also graduation in 2000 with a Master Degree in Engineering.
Live in the Academic Moment

A college education is a classic process-versus-product paradigm. Plenty of students complain about their work or obsess about their G.P.A., but that is just wasted energy and time. Ã?Â?Ã?Â?

Get caught up in any academic ennui. Instead, focus on your assignments, papers and projects for their intrinsic learning value; the grades will come naturally.

Don't Study in Your Room
Unless you have a spartan single and concentration powers of steel, your room is the worst place to study because of the comfort and the distractions.

Given the realities of dorm life, it's far too easy to wander across the hall and talk to your neighbor, or to have Facebook on while you glance back and forth from your book to the screen.
Get Connected to Campus Life

Academic clubs, social organizations and professional associations take on a larger, more applied and energetic meaning in college. You should jump in with both feet, even if it means getting outside your comfort zone a little bit.
Erica from Baltimore, MD
Coming into college is going to be the biggest change of your life. You will meet hundreds of people and you will have plenty of obstacles as well. Maintaining order and knowing who you are is most important. Do not change for anyone and know the reasons why you are in college. Morgan has a enormous amount of extraccurricular activites to get involved in. That's exactly what you want to do, get involved!
Alias from Baltimore, MD
yes indeed,you get worth your money at morgan ,theres a saying life is what you make it this goes for college. once you have propositioned in your mind that you will make the best of the college experience then it will be great.
Michelle from Baltimore, MD
For the amount you pay to go to Morgan some things are pricey, but the University is working on that situation to make the university more affordable to the students. So its a working progress.
