Cost and Financial Aid

Our online programs deliver an exceptional education at a reasonable price. No matter what you study, you can develop your talents in an incredibly rich learning environment that stretches your mind and strengthens your faith.

You’ll also discover just how much you’re capable of accomplishing. Your professors will bring out your best work. Your classmates will offer unique perspectives. And everyone will enrich your understanding of God’s Word and how it applies to your life. The result: You’ll emerge with the biblical wisdom and experience you need to make a significant contribution to your chosen field.

But if you need help paying for your education, you’re not alone. More than 90 percent of our students receive some form of financial aid. As an MU Online student, you may be eligible for federal aid from the US government. Go to to file your FAFSA (Multnomah's school code is 003206). Our Financial Aid Office will contact you about your next steps. You must be accepted to Multnomah University before you can receive any financial aid. 

Contact the Financial Aid Office by calling 503.251.5335 or emailing if you have any questions.

Multnomah University is currently authorized to offer online courses in a majority of states. Check the state authorizations and exemptions page for the latest information. If you live in one of these states and meet the requirements for enrollment at Multnomah University, you will meet the requirements for enrollment in our online programs. More states are added to this list periodically. If you wish to take online classes but do not live in one of these states, contact the Admissions Office to ask if Multnomah is in the process of securing authorization for your state. Note that the regulatory requirements of some states make it fiscally imprudent for MU to obtain authorization.

Any person living outside the U.S. is welcome to apply for admission as a full-time online student.
