Tuition & Fees

A college education is one of the most important investments you and your family will make. At Menlo College, we are committed to making that investment affordable. We make financial aid available to help you pay for college, including merit-based scholarships, low-interest loans, government grants and on-campus work. Most students use a combination of these to cover their costs.

Academic Scholarships

We believe in rewarding students whose high school grades reflect hard work and commitment to your future success.  Your eligibility for a Menlo Academic Scholarship is determined during the admission process.  The following are just three of the scholarships we make available to entering students.  Other sources of support are also available.  Over 90% of Menlo students have some sort of aid to offset tuition.

President’s Scholarship$17,000
Dean’s Scholarship$15,000
Leadership Scholarship$13,000

Understanding College Costs

We are committed to providing all Menlo College students with foundational knowledge of the financial responsibility of a four-year college education.  The importance we place on understanding the costs of a college education is seen with the inclusion of a course entitled “Personal Finance for College” as a requirement for all entering students at Menlo.

Personal Finance for College prepares students entering a four-year college program for the financial decisions they are making as they become independent college students.  The course also provides students with basic money management skills that they will use throughout their lives.  The ability to use knowledge and skills to manage financial resources effectively are critical for navigating a four-year college experience; the benefits, though, extend to financial security throughout the lives of  Menlo College alumni.  We are there for our students.

Have questions? Feel free to contact the Office of Financial Aid between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday.
