Financing Your Education
Villanova’s tuition rates and fees in graduate arts and sciences are affordable and competitively priced. Teachers and educators are eligible for reduced tuition rates in most programs. Villanova also offers two forms of competitive, merit-based fellowships for full-time students: tuition scholarships and graduate assistantships, which provide a stipend as well as tuition.
Assistance with applications for student loans and a convenient payment plan are also available. We invite you to watch this video on financial assistance for graduate students. Additional information may be found in the guide issued by Villanova’s Office of Financial Assistance, “Understanding Financial Aid: Graduate Students,” available here.
