Mside U and Storm Lake

We are proud to be one of your hometown universities. Morningside University offers Siouxland students like you a personalized small, private university experience on a safe, comfortable campus that is close to home. Morningside is a place where you can thrive and quickly become part of our close-knit campus community.

Additionally, Morningside University is a great value. Though we are a private university, Morningside offers scholarships and grants that allow us to be as affordable or more affordable than state colleges and universities.

To ensure that Morningside can be a top choice for Storm Lake students like you, we are rolling out a new program. The Storm Lake to Mside U Scholars program provides you with an award that is comparable to the financial awards typically available to Pell-eligible Iowa residents who are considering a public in-state college or university.
