Tuition & Fees

There's no question that a college education is a significant investment. However, unlike many other colleges and universities with comparable tuition rates, Manhattan College is consistently ranked as one of the top schools in the nation for offering a high return on investment. The investment you make in your education at Manhattan College will pay you back in the form of higher salaries and greater opportunities over the course of your career.

In addition to the scholarships, need-based grants and loans that are available to you as an undergraduate, we also offer several different ways to pay your tuition, including a 5-month payment plan (per semester) that allows students and families to pay the out-of-pocket cost interest-free. Enrollment in the Fall Monthly Payment Plan will open in July, and subsequent payments will be due August through November. The Spring Monthly Payment Plan will be offered beginning in December with subsequent payments due January through April.

Cost of Attendance

Manhattan College has a full cost of attendance budget that includes tuition, fees, room and board, books, transportation and personal/miscellaneous expenses. You are only billed for tuition and fees, plus room and board if you live on campus, but the other expenses are calculated into the total expense budget for the purpose of establishing need and awarding financial aid.
