Villanova is committed to making our high-quality education affordable for students.

Villanova University is dedicated to providing students with financial assistance, which may include a combination of grants, scholarships, loans and student employment that will closely meet their family's need 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.

Prospective students entering 2020-2021 and Fall 2019 transfers: Find out more information on how to apply for federal and institutional financial assistance.

Prospective students entering 2019-2020 can check the status of their admissions application, financial aid applications, and requirements through their Applicant Status Page

The Congressional Research Service (CRS) has launched an online version of the Constitution Annotated.  Created by attorneys at the American Law Division of the CRS, the original version of the Constitution Annotated is a 3,000-page hardbound volume entitled “Constitution of the United States of America: Analysis and Interpretation.”  It is furnished to members of Congress to provide an explanation of the Constitution’s origins and how every provision has been interpreted.  The new online version makes this material accessible to all Americans in a format that is easy to browse and search and includes links to full text case law and other annotations.  The Constitution Annotated conforms to CRS standards governing objective, authoritative, and nonpartisan analysis.
