Financial Aid

The financial aid application is reviewed separately from your admissions materials, and will not impact your admissions decision. Minerva University follows a need-blind admissions policy, ensuring that every candidate is evaluated without regard for their ability to pay. Moreover, eligibility for financial aid is not limited to residents of the U.S., as applicants from all countries can apply for and receive financial aid.
