Financial Aid for Unique Circumstances

We are aware that our students can face difficult financial and life changes while at the University of Dayton. In order to help support our students through these challenges, we have additional resources they can utilize to continue to be successful while at UD.


If your family has experienced any of these circumstances, you may qualify for additional financial aid. 

  • Loss or reduction of working income
  • Loss of benefits such as child support, unemployment, alimony, social security/disability or worker’s compensation
  • One time lump sum income or pension/401K withdrawal
  • Unreimbursed family medical/dental expenses or funeral expenses
  • Extraordinary care expenses, such as elder care and adult children, not already included in the number in the household
  • Divorce of parent or independent student
  • Death of parent or independent student’s spouse

Food4Flyers Food Pantry

In an effort to reduce food insecurity among students in the UD Community, The Brook Center and The Dean of Students office has collaborated on the creation of the Food4Flyers Food Pantry.


SNAP Benefits

SNAP provides nutrition benefits to supplement the food budget so families with financial needs can purchase healthy food. Nearly 1.5 million Ohioans use SNAP to help them buy enough healthy foods to meet their needs.

For assistance with computers, books, or lab materials, complete the Student Assistance Request Form.

The fund helps any currently enrolled student who has an unanticipated emergency, such as a death in the family, a severe injury, a diagnosis of a serious illness, an unforeseen financial difficulty, or a loss outside the student’s college experience that requires immediate financial assistance. That outreach, fueled by the spirit of the University's Marianist charism, can take many forms - a plane ticket, a week's supply of groceries, a rental car, or a pair of crutches to mention a few.
