No Morningside experience looks the same, and neither will your financial aid package.

Morningside will work with you to examine your unique financial circumstances and help create an award package designed just for you. We want your college decision to be based on quality and fit before price, which is why our office of financial planning works hard to make Morningside an affordable choice for full-time students through a combination of scholarships, grants, and/or need-based assistance. 

Note: This information is for students beginning attendance at Morningside in the fall of 2024.


Academic awards are available to admitted full-time undergraduate transfer students who have earned at least 27 college credits that have been approved and accepted by Morningside University. GPA is based on a 4.0 scale. 

*Academic awards will be reduced by $2,000 for students who choose to live off campus prior to earning 91 or more credit hours.
