Innovative Tuition Plan for Undergraduates

At the University of Dayton, we want you to have a successful college experience and peace of mind regarding the cost of your degree. That's why we created a four-year approach to tuition with complete transparency.

Here are five ways the University of Dayton is making a difference when it comes to cost.

1. No tuition increases

At most universities, tuition increases each year. That means what you pay as a senior could be substantially higher than what you pay your first year. But at the University of Dayton, your scholarships and grants increase each year to offset any tuition increases. The result? The tuition you pay each year stays the same.

2. No fees

Most universities charge additional fees for labs, courses, orientation, etc. But the University of Dayton is different. We don't have fees or surcharges, so you won't be surprised when you get your bill.

3. Textbook scholarship

Textbooks can be an unexpected expense. But University of Dayton students don't have to worry. If you attend an official campus visit and file the FAFSAyou can receive up to $4,000 for your textbooks (over four years).

4. Study abroad scholarship

A $3,000 study abroad scholarship, available to all students, will help you expand your perspective and stand out in the global marketplace. Through select study abroad programs in Ireland and Spain, you can take advantage of our unique opportunity to learn overseas for an entire semester at no additional cost. Or you can use the scholarship for a UD summer study abroad experience when you enroll in nine or more credit hours.

5. Four-year outlook

Most universities focus on your first-year financial aid award and don't tell you how costs will change over time. At UD, we provide a four-year overview of costs. You'll also have peace of mind in knowing your net tuition cost stays the same all four years.

When you apply for admission and file the FAFSA, we'll send you a complete overview of your four-year investment at UD, so there are no surprises. 


Partnership Programs

Through our partnerships with Sinclair Community College, like the UD Sinclair Academy and Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, you can earn a UD degree while taking advantage of some elements of our transparent tuition plan as well as Sinclair's affordable tuition.
