How our approach works
At the University of Dayton, we want you to have a successful college experience and peace of mind regarding the cost of your degree. That's why we created a four-year approach to tuition with complete transparency.
Here are four ways the University of Dayton is making a difference when it comes to cost.
No tuition increases
At most universities, tuition increases each year. That means what you pay as a senior could be substantially higher than what you pay your first year. But at the University of Dayton, your scholarships and grants increase each year to offset any tuition increases. The result? The tuition you pay each year stays the same.
Most universities charge additional fees for labs, courses, orientation, etc. But the University of Dayton is different. We don't have fees or surcharges, so you won't be surprised when you get your bill.
Money for Textbooks
Textbooks can be an unexpected expense. But University of Dayton students don't have to worry. If you attend an official campus visit and file the FAFSA by April 1, you can receive up to $4,000 for your textbooks (over four years).
Most universities focus on your first-year financial aid award and don't tell you how costs will change over time. At UD, we provide a four-year overview of costs. You'll also have peace of mind in knowing your net tuition cost stays the same all four years.
