Your Pathway to Success

The UD Sinclair Academy offers an affordable way to earn a four-year degree. The Academy offers 70+ pathway majors, generous financial benefits, welcoming communities on two campuses and more.

About the Academy

Through the UD Sinclair Academy, you'll begin your studies at Sinclair College and graduate with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Dayton, a top-tier Catholic research university. This affordable option gives you access to all the benefits of UD – from advising and campus facilities to student life and athletics – even while taking classes at Sinclair.

Financial Benefits

As a member of the Academy, you’ll benefit from affordable Sinclair tuition — among the lowest in the state — while enrolled at Sinclair College. You'll also be automatically considered for a UD merit scholarship, worth up to $25,000 each year at UD. And at UD, there will be no tuition increases, no fees, and no hidden costs or additional expenses.

"When I began my college search, I was looking for an affordable price and good community. Through the UD Sinclair Academy, I found both. I never thought I'd be able to attend a highly rated college like UD, but once I talked to the right people, the registration and financial aid process at UD was smooth sailing."
