At Marquette, we understand that a college education is a significant investment for our students and their families, requiring sacrifices amid a time of economic uncertainty.

Yes, it's worth it.

But you should also know that approximately 99 percent of our undergraduates receive financial aid in the form of scholarships, grants, loans or student employment.

As you journey through your four years with us and beyond, know that we recognize the tremendous responsibility we have to help shape and transform the lives of our students at this great Catholic and Jesuit institution. We are committed to providing them all with a transformational education rooted in excellence.

Value and values

Marquette is one of only 50 universities recognized in the "Best Value Schools" category by U.S. News & World Report, and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance listed the university among its "Best Values in Private Colleges for 2014." But a Marquette education is more than just a great value. It's about values, too. In fact, the university was the 10th higher education institution bestowed the Changemaker Campus title by the Ashoka Institute, a leader in social entrepreneurship.
