Tuition, Reimbursement & Financial Aid

Tuition – There are no additional fees beyond tuition and books.

Adult Accelerated Courses for the 2016–17 academic year are $450 per credit hour.

Courses for the 2017–18 academic year are $456 per credit hour.

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.

Financial Aid – Financial Aid counseling is available for all students.

  • Mount Mercy University's federal school code is 001880. 
  • A new FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) must be completed each academic year at www.fafsa.ed.gov.
  • For financial aid purposes, the academic year starts in the fall semester (usually late August) and ends in the summer semester (usually early August).
    For example, students who wish to apply for aid for Summer 2016 must complete a 2015-2016 FAFSA, then a 2016-2017 FAFSA for Fall 2016 and Spring 2017.

For Student Financial Aid Assistance
