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 net 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 options

We offer affordable study abroad options and scholarships to help you expand your perspective and stand out in the global marketplace.

5. Four-year outlook

Most universities focus on your first-year financial aid offer and don't tell you how costs will change over time. At UD, we provide a transparent, four-year overview of costs.

Just by applying to UD, you can find out what scholarships you're eligible for, and admitted students receive a complete, personalized overview of their costs and scholarships all four years. This means you'll know exactly what your net tuition cost will be, and you can have peace of mind in knowing that it will never increase. 

By filing the FAFSA, you could also be eligible for additional financial aid, like grants, which do not have to be repaid.
