Adult Education Cost & Affordability


Invest in yourself.

We know that the cost of your education is just one of the concerns you have as an adult student. Our financial assistance staff will help you navigate how to pay for college – finding ways to make an investment in yourself affordable.

Adult students pursuing their first baccalaureate degree are eligible for financial assistance, need-based grants, outside scholarships, and private loans. And once you're enrolled, you'll have the opportunity to receive adult student-specific scholarships.

To begin the process, you'll need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the Office of Financial Assistance to determine your financial need. In 2013-14, Meredith coordinated nearly $44 million in financial assistance for 95% of students.

By earning your degree, you'll increase your earning power. And like the majority of our graduates – 94% of whom are employed or attending graduate school within a few short months of graduation – you'll see the return on your investment.
