An Outstanding Education is Within Reach

As a Catholic, Marianist institution, we're committed to making a UD education affordable and accessible to all students.

That's why our innovative and transparent tuition plan is different from what you're likely to find at other schools. While many other schools focus on first-year costs, at UD, we provide a personalized four-year offer up front, so you know details of your full education investment. That means there are no surprises - and no hidden fees - so you can be confident in our costs and your plan for success.

To help you cover your costs, a variety of scholarships, grants, loans and part-time work study are available. The University also accepts transfer credits and credit by exam, which help reduce the number of credit hours you need to take to graduate.

Tuition is set based on educational content, independent of the method of delivery.
