Villanova University is dedicated to providing students and parents with financial aid, including grants, scholarships, loans and student employment, as well as payment options to assist in meeting educational expenses.
You may be surprised by how favorably Villanova University compares to "lower-cost" schools! The actual out-of-pocket cost to attend Villanova is often the same as that of less-costly institutions, because grants, loans, and other forms of aid can fill the financial gap between the total cost of attendance and what your family can afford.
