Information on Costs & Fees

Franciscan University works with each student individually to make a Franciscan education an affordable reality. When comparing the cost of higher education, we want you to look at the net price or out of pocket price, not just the cost of tuition. We encourage you to check out our Net Price Calculator, take a look at our Financial Aid options, or  apply to Franciscan and speak with our Admissions Counselors about Financial Aid.
