  • Enter the school name where you plan to take or have taken a course.
  • Enter the department name of the course and select the course you have taken or plan to take. The course(s) you select will appear on the right side of your screen.
  • After you have entered all your courses, click on the green “Search for Matches” button.

Costs

Tuition and Fees

Marquette is ranked 49th in Best Value Schools by U.S. News & World Report. Marquette Online offers the same programs as those taught in-person.

$750 per credit hour

Students are responsible for all fees associated with a course, and which are separate from tuition.

For information on payment options or to obtain copies of payments, please contact Marquette Central at (414) 288-4000.

Financial Aid

Students are highly encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine eligibility for aid from the federal government. Once you have applied for aid at Marquette University all financial aid correspondence will be sent to your eMarq email address.

Students in online programs will not be eligible for any institutional financial aid from Marquette (e.g. Père Marquette Award, Deans’ Scholarships, etc.).

Students must have a high school transcript on file with Marquette to receive federal financial aid.

For further information, including on how to apply for and understand your financial aid award, please visit:

Note: Students who do not meet all requirements may be admitted on a provisional basis. In this case, students are designated as non-degree status for a period and are therefore ineligible to receive aid at the federal level until specific requirements have been met.
