Millersville OOS Merit Aid

carynicaryni 2 replies3 threads New Member
Does anyone know when Millersville will be notifying prospective students what their Merit Aid will be? I know they offer a 6K Reduction in OOS tuition but looking to see if anyone has been awarded additional Merit Aid. S stats: 1390 SAT, 4.3 GPA

    can you call the school and ask?

    many here don’t know anything about Millersville or have even heard of it.

    how much merit do you need? there are other schools that would give more merit than that for those stats.

    what do you want the net costs to be?

    When my son applied in 2017 it was only the $6k, then a little later he got notified of a credit towards housing the first 2 years - maybe $2500? He didn't get anything above that, but his stats weren't as good as yours. I'd call the school and ask. Good Luck!

    This is true and it's such a little gem with WONDERFUL Faculty and Staff. But you're right... a lot of people HAVEN'T heard of it. I had never heard of it myself before attending a college fair for musicians and my son got introduced to his dream instructor. So we went to visit and met some faculty and staff in their School of Music and Millersville has catapulted to the top of his list.

    @caryni , we're going down there today and I have a meeting with Financial Aid, so will let you know. I DO know that in addition to the OOS 6K reduction and the housing discount, they DO offer departmental merit aid which my kid will qualify for if he nails his audition today. His grades are not good enough for academic merit so counting on the talent award. We shall see.

    @BenniesMom1 just keep in mind that for a music major there can be additional costs.

    Private lesson fees (at my son's school it is $100/credit and he has to take 18 credits of private voice/piano).

    Accompanist fee is another $100 or so per semester.
