Merrimack’s beautiful suburban campus is just minutes from Boston and Cambridge—economic and cultural hubs that are home to some of the nation’s most dynamic financial, technology, health care, and biotechnology companies. Not only do some of the country’s most prestigious employers call these cities home, they’re also destinations that offer unlimited culture, entertainment, and activities.

average cost to attend Merrimack is the same as or less than many public and private universities. Bottom line? We’re committed to making a Merrimack education affordable for every deserving student. To that end, last year many of our graduate students received merit scholarships or reduced tuition through fellowships and assistantships.

The real payoff? Ten years after graduation, our alumni’s salaries are 67% higher than the national average*—making a Merrimack education an investment that pays dividends for many years to come. n
