There's Real Value in Being a Flyer.

The University of Dayton is a top-tier Catholic research university - and more affordable than you think.

We want you to have a successful college experience and peace of mind about the cost of your degree. That’s why we have a four-year approach to tuition with total transparency, so you’ll never have to worry about surprises. And 94 percent of our first-year students received financial aid last year, significantly lowering their net tuition cost.

Filing the FAFSA

To be considered for need-based financial aid (including grants and loans), you should file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available October 1 each year.

File the 2018-19 FAFSA if you would like to be considered for aid for any of all of the fall 2018, spring 2019 or summer 2019 terms.

The state of Ohio uses the FAFSA to determine state aid eligibility. As a result, it is important to file your FAFSA by February 1 each year. If you are not from Ohio, please check with your state's agency for higher education to see if an additional application is needed to be considered for state aid. 


Study abroad scholarship available to all students.


Book scholarship we'll give you (over four years) if you visit campus and file the FAFSA.
