The Master’s University strives to offer students a Christ-centered education within the financial reach of all. We endeavor to keep costs as low as possible; consequently, our tuition is among the most economical for a private university. When calculating university costs, be sure to consider the total cost. Consider items like books and supplies, transportation, and personal spending money. While these amounts vary with each student, it can raise the total cost of education above the published tuition and room and board amounts. Fortunately, we consider all these costs when computing a student’s financial need.
