Admissions / Financial Assistance

Affordable Tuition
The Meredith MBA program offers an exceptional academic experience at an affordable cost. Many companies encourage employees to seek advanced degrees, and often pay part or all of their tuition expenses. However, additional assistance is available if needed.

Graduate students seeking to receive loan funding must begin the application process by filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). All students who complete the FAFSA and are fully admitted into a Meredith graduate program are automatically qualified to receive up to $20,500 per year in federal Stafford loans.

All federal Stafford loans have a fixed interest rate of 6.8%, and no payments are due until six months after graduation as long as a student remains enrolled at least half time. If a student wishes to borrow more than $20,500 per year, a student may apply for a Graduate PLUS loan through the Department of Education. More information about federal Stafford loans and Graduate PLUS loans can be found on our student loans page. If you have any questions, please contact the Financial Assistance Office at (919) 760-8565 or email at

The following merit scholarships provide financial assistance to enrolled, degree-seeking students in the Master of Business Administration program. Scholarship applications can be mailed to interested students. Please contact an MBA recruiter for more information.

  • The Shearon Harris Scholarship Fund was established in memory of Shearon Harris, a Meredith trustee, chairman of the Board of Associates and an exemplary community leader. His family established the fund to express a commitment to church-related higher education to perpetuate his interest in Meredith College students.

  • The Wyford Scholarships are made possible by a bequest from Louise Ledford Wyatt, a Meredith graduate of the class of 1930. The Wyford Scholarship Fund was established by her husband, Guy E. Wyatt; her mother, Bess J. Hord; and her father, John Ferris Ledford.

  • Payment Plan
    Pay your tuition bills in monthly installments, interest-free, with the Tuition Management Systems Payment Plan. Other than a minimal annual enrollment fee, no other charges are incurred when you select the monthly automatic bank draft option. Learn more about the Payment Plan.
