Earn a Degree Online and Receive a Tuition Discount

Marian University’s MPath online programs were created for adult learners who want a personalized, flexible education based on the core values the Midwest has come to expect from Marian University. Students engage in either a traditional 15-week semester, 7-week accelerated timeline or a 4-week flexible program schedule, and progress through their chosen program utilizing a student-centered approach that supports and recognizes where you come from and what you need to move forward.

Tuition Discount for You and Your Dependents

The partnership between Marian University and SSM Health isn’t just about helping you – it’s about helping your loved ones, too. That’s why spouses and dependent children of full-time SSM Health employees can receive a 50% tuition discount annually when enrolling in one of Marian University’s 45+ on-campus undergraduate programs. This is separate from the 30% off tuition for all SSM Health employees.

If students are eligible for more than one discount, the discount of greatest applicable value will be applied to their account. Student who enroll as part of the partnership are responsible for monitoring their billing statements. If the account does not accurately reflect the discount mentioned, the student should contact the Office of Business and Finance at 920-923-8551.
