We recognize the tremendous investment families make in providing a Marquette education for their children — and the sacrifices this investment requires. To that end, the university makes every effort to contain costs, identify efficiencies and invest wisely. We have significantly increased the amount of financial aid available to students and will increase those funds again this year, and current-use and endowed scholarships remain our top fundraising priority. Additional sources of student financial assistance include grants, student employment and loans. The Office of Student Financial Aid is available to help students access the resources they may need to help close the gap between their personal contribution and the actual cost. The university’s strong credit rating, adequate cash reserves and growing endowment, combined with our conservative fiscal management and the generosity of our benefactors, enable us to continue fulfilling our commitment to provide a quality education to our students, grounded on the principles of academic excellence, faith, leadership and service to others. This rate card includes details of 2014–15 tuition, room and board, and fee charges for Marquette students.
Marquette University payment policy The staff in Marquette Central is dedicated to providing service to our students and families in a professional and friendly manner while following the policies and procedures set forth by the university. The office provides accurate and timely information about each student’s bursar account while encouraging our students to be active participants in managing their account. The final step to complete a student’s registration is payment in full of all fees for the term. Marquette sends a monthly electronic billing statement to each student while the student has an account balance. A student may view his/her e-bill via CheckMarq. Payment due dates are available at marquette.edu/ mucentral. It is the student’s responsibility to pay tuition, fees and housing by the published due date whether he/she receives a bill or not. Students who do not plan to attend the university are responsible for dropping classes through CheckMarq and notifying their respective college office. Students who do not pay in full by the due date, enroll in the Marquette Monthly Payment plan or submit a billing authorization from an approved sponsor will have a registration block, transcript block and diploma block placed on their accounts. There will be a $100 fee for the removal of the block. Failure to pay any balance when due may result in the cancelation of a student’s registration for the current academic term, referral of the account to a collection agency, legal action to collect any balance due or any combination thereof. If the university must take legal action to collect any unpaid balance, the student will be responsible for all fees and costs incurred by the university to collect the unpaid balance.

McCormick also features CommUNITY, a cross-cultural residential learning environment, and Straz Tower houses the Dorothy Day Social Justice Living Learning Community.

At the destination dining locations, students can swipe their meal card once during each meal period: breakfast (7:15 a.m. – 11 a.m.), lunch (11 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.) or dinner (4:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.). McCormick’s dining hall remains open for late-night eating until midnight. The Anytime Meal Plan also includes 15 guest passes and $50 for use in on-campus dining locations.
