The University of Dayton is one of the most affordable private, Catholic schools in the country, and among comparable universities, it is an excellent value. Our graduates possess the independence, skills, knowledge and values preparing them for success in the ever-changing world. A University of Dayton education is a lifetime investment, appreciating over time.

With our innovative and transparent tuition plan you get something very different from what you're likely to see from other schools: full disclosure in our costs and the comfort that your scholarships and grants will grow each year as tuition increases. In addition, you won't find any additional fees or surcharges when you receive your bill, so there will never be any surprises.

The University invests $120 million in our students each year through generous financial aid awards, and more than 90 percent of our students receive financial assistance including nonrepayable grants, scholarships, educational loans and part-time work study. We also offer a variety of alternative loans and payment plans to cover any balances remaining after deducting financial aid awards. Incoming, first-year students will automatically be considered for a merit scholarship as part of the application review process.

The scholarship figures on this page are for students entering in fall 2016. These scholarship ranges are to be used for informational purposes only and are based upon actual awards that accepted students received last year. Final scholarship awards will be based on the applicant's academic record, as well as the quality and strength of the applicant pool.
