Deadline Extended

Recently, additional federal delays were announced related to the new FAFSA. After assessing how these delays will impact the University’s financial aid process — and the time your family will have to evaluate your student's financial aid offer — UD has extended the May 1 deadline to confirm enrollment to May 15. Additionally, for Bachelor of Science in Nursing students, the March 1 deadline has also been extended to May 15. In addition, UD’s priority FAFSA submission deadline has been extended to Feb. 15

Next Steps for Financial Aid

UD recognizes that having a complete and transparent financial aid offer is critical for students to understand their full college investment. Here is our updated financial aid timeline based on the ongoing federal delays related to the FAFSA.

  • Available now: File the FAFSA, if you haven’t already, for full consideration of all financial aid your student may be eligible for. We highly encourage your student to file — even if you think they won’t qualify for federal aid — because many University-funded grants and awards require a FAFSA for eligibility.
  • Available now: Use our Net Price Calculator to estimate the first-year cost of your student's education while factoring in potential federal aid, grants and more.
  • March: Based on the recent federal announcement, UD should begin receiving FAFSA data by March 15. If your student has filed the FAFSA, they can watch for an email beginning in late March confirming that we’ve processed their FAFSA information.
  • April: UD plans to begin sending personalized financial aid offers to admitted students, prioritizing those who met our Feb. 15 FAFSA deadline. Students will receive an email when their financial aid offer is available in their Admission Account, and the printed offer packet will soon follow in the mail. 
  • May: Confirm enrollment by May 15.

Living in Community

At UD, we help first-year students create a community of peers who will support them throughout their college journeys. Our vision for residential learning goes beyond housing, as we create an integrated learning and living experience across four years. In the Catholic and Marianist tradition, we provide services, programs and facilities that foster leadership, community, civility and faith.

UD guarantees on-campus housing for students who confirm enrollment by May 15. No additional housing deposit is required. After students confirm enrollment, they’ll complete a housing and meal plan contract where they confirm their preferences and can take advantage of our highly successful roommate match program that pairs students based on compatibility, not random assignment.

Porches is Open

Students who have confirmed their enrollment can now activate their University of Dayton Porches account, their digital home for next steps and opportunities. On Porches, confirmed students have a personalized To-do List where they will complete tasks like:

  • Completing the housing and meal plan contract.
  • Registering for orientation.
  • Submitting the health requirements form.
  • Sharing course preferences.
  • And more!
