Health, Safety, Tuition and Fees

In preparation for our community’s return to campus this fall, Villanova has established health and safety requirements consistent with prevailing CDC and other guidance to minimize the spread of COVID-19 on campus. These campus-wide measures will include temperature checks, social distancing, wearing masks or other facial coverings, using PPE, not reporting to work or class if symptomatic, getting tested, and quarantining or isolating as necessary. 


Following these protocols will help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 at Villanova, but we want you to understand that Villanova cannot guarantee a environment free of COVID-19, and coming onto campus may involve some risk of contracting COVID-19. Accordingly, we suggest that students who do not feel comfortable or safe returning to campus this fall consider an online learning platform, deferring on-campus attendance, or contacting the University to discuss possible accommodations.


For the Fall 2020 semester, Villanova plans to use a hybrid format of in-person and online courses, but this could change due to the coronavirus pandemic. If the University needs to move to a fully online format for all or part of the semester, the set tuition and fees will remain the same. These are provided in exchange for accredited educational instruction, academic credit and certain non-academic services that Villanova will continue to deliver whether in person, remotely, or in a hybrid format.


The tuition and fees charged help fund ongoing University operations, including the delivery of instruction and the cost of services for Villanova students such as financial aid, registration, and remote academic advising and support. Even as campus operations have been adjusted in response to COVID-19, many of the costs covered by Villanova’s fees will continue.


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 2021-2022 can check the status of their admissions application, financial aid applications, and requirements through their Applicant Status Page
