An Investment in the Future
When your family chooses to send a student to Millikin University, you will not simply be paying for a four-year private education; instead, you will be making a valuable investment that will affect the rest of his or her life.
We at Millikin are committed to working with families to find ways in which to manage the cost of this valuable education, with student financial aid packages that include academic scholarships, loans, government assistance, and student employment.
And you won't be alone in seeking financial aid. The majority of Millikin students—98% of them—receive over $50 million in student financial aid each year from a variety of sources. Student financial aid at Millikin is awarded on the bases of academic merit, talent, and financial need.
We hope the information you find here will provide you with the knowledge and tools needed to research, plan, and prepare the way to see your student's education at Millikin become a reality. We welcome you to contact the Student Service Center with questions or comments.
