More Affordable Than You May Think

At a time when higher education costs are skyrocketing, MNE has made a deliberate decision to try to keep our costs low and predictable. Recently, we transitioned to a flat billing system which results in one cost for full-time students enrolled in 12 to 18 credits in a semester, so there’s no need to worry about how much an extra class may cost. Upon completion of the FAFSA form , we advise our students of the available federal, state and institutional financial aid resources that help many of them achieve little to no out-of-pocket costs for the year. Learn more about our costs and available aid , and discover why we’re one of the most affordable schools around!
