Undergraduate Tuition Costs: 2017-18

Choosing a college that provides the greatest value is an important task. We encourage you to inquire about the true cost of each school you are considering — not just in terms of your first year but for all four years of your college experience. 

While these are the official costs at the University of Dayton, most students pay much less. Approximately 94 percent of first-year students receive financial aid, and merit scholarships worth up to $88,000 (over four years are available). Last year, we awarded a record $162 million in financial aid; view the breakdown on College Navigator.

Tuition: $41,750
Residence halls: $7,900
Meal plans: $5,280

Residential students are required to live on campus and have a meal plan for the first two years. The amounts shown are for the standard options. If you elect to make changes to your assigned housing or meal plan, these costs will change.
