How much will it cost?

Make sure you get the whole picture before making your decision. First, complete your FAFSA so you can see what financial aid you are eligible to receive and complete your application. Once you are admitted to Midway University, you can meet with our Financial Aid Office to discuss all the eligible aid (federal, state and institutional) that you have access to and apply for scholarships. This is the only way to figure out the true cost and if you will have any out-of-pocket expenses to cover.

Can I transfer credits from another school if I am accepted into this program?

Midway University accepts transfer credits from regionally accredited institutions that are 100-level or higher with a grade of “C” or better. At the time of admission, our Admissions Counselors will provide an unofficial evaluation of your transfer credit. An official evaluation will be completed by the Registrar’s Office after acceptance.

How do I register for classes or sign up for housing?

Once you have been accepted, the Admissions Office will communicate the Next Steps for you to sign up for an Eagle Prep Registration and explain the Housing Application Process if you plan to live on campus.
