What will it cost to attend Marquette?

Financial planning for college begins with an estimate of what the total cost will be for one academic year. Tuition, food and campus housing are direct costs, but indirect costs such as books, personal expenses and travel must also be considered.

The Office of Student Financial Aid establishes standard expenses that represent typical costs for students during the academic year. These costs are based on full-time enrollment and variables such as dependency status and living arrangements (whether on or off campus or with parents).

Although it is impossible to estimate your unique expenses, these budgets approximate the average direct and indirect costs for the majority of students.

Use the cost estimates listed below, including figures from the travel chart where applicable, to approximate your total cost of attendance at Marquette.
