Financial Aid

We know that funding your college education can be challenging, and at Messenger College we are committed to maintaining an affordable tuition rate, that makes achieving your degree realistic, without the need to incur unnecessary amounts of student debt. 

Financial Facts

Many of MC's students receive scholarships or grants.

MC's tuition is one of the most affordable private higher educations in the DFW area. 

The average student at MC can expect to have 75-80% of their total school bill covered by financial aid (loans, scholarships, and grants). 

Our staff is available to assist you every step of the way 

Financing your education is a substantial commitment. We realize this investment will be one with eternal returns. It is our value at Messenger College to maintain program tuition and fees at an affordable and competitive rate.


We were named as one of the most affordable Christian Bachelor's degree programs by Christian Ministry EDU in 2022.

Cost of Attendance
Net Price Calculator

The financial aid office uses an estimate of direct and indirect costs to determine how much financial aid a student may be eligible for. Direct costs include tuition, fees, some books and supplies, and institutional housing. Indirect costs include estimates of other living expenses, transportation, and personal expenses. Examples of an estimated cost of attendance for you can be found by using the net price calculator.
