Four-Year Approach to Tuition

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


We've partnered with RaiseMe to encourage students to start building skills for college success beginning in the 9th grade. By recording their achievements, students can also begin earning our merit scholarships, which they can track on their RaiseMe profile. 

And as a counselor, you can create an educator account to help introduce your students to RaiseMe and see their activity.

On-Campus Visits and Events

We believe the best way to determine if the University of Dayton is the right fit for your students is to have them visit.  A variety of campus visit options are offered to meet student schedules, and registering through our online calendar makes it easy. 

Off-Campus and virtual Events

Your students are invited to experience UD during our off-campus and virtual admission events. A variety of opportunities are offered throughout the year to help your students learn more about the Flyer community.


Counselor Events

Guiding students makes your time extremely valuable. We will reach out when there are opportunities to engage with representatives from the University of Dayton in your local area as well as virtually.
