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 and Fall 2021 transfers: Find out more information on how to apply for federal and institutional financial assistance.

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