Mount Mercy endeavors to keep the cost of our graduate programs competitive. In fact, tuition costs for Mount Mercy’s graduate programs are among the lowest in the region. A great degree at a reasonable cost — that's a good investment.
Graduate students may be eligible for various loan programs, including the Federal Direct loan and the Federal Perkins loan. The first step in applying for financial aid is to complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Don’t forget to ask your employer about tuition reimbursement. For more information about available loan programs or FAFSA, please contact the Student Financial Services Center by email or at 319-368-6467.

Tuition Reimbursement Benefit – Mount Mercy University accepts tuition reimbursement from employers who offer that benefit. We allow students that receive tuition reimbursement up to 45 days after the completion of the course to pay the course tuition.
All students, except those on employer reimbursement, are required to have their entire account paid in full by the first day of class. Any balance remaining after this date will be considered delinquent.
Students who are reimbursed by their employers are required to have their entire account paid in full within 45 days of receiving their grade report for each class or their account will be considered delinquent. It is the student’s responsibility to notify the Student Financial Services Office that s/he is eligible for employer reimbursement as well as notify them of any changes in reimbursement status.
Students with delinquent accounts may be subject to the following actions until the balance is paid in full:
|Student Cost (All fees are non-refundable)||Amount|

|Audit fee for a course||$500|
