At Millikin, 100% of our first-year students receive a Merit Scholarship and in addition, 98% receive some form of financial aid. Our average financial aid package is worth over $19,000, and unlike loans, scholarship and grants don’t need to be paid back!
Need-based aid is awarded based on results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is the only financial aid application required by Millikin (Millikin’s school code is 001724).

All students who submit an application and are admitted to Millikin will receive a Merit Scholarship to assist in the cost of tuition. More info on available scholarships and grants can be found on the Scholarships & Grants page.
