A Top-Tier Catholic University

Afford. Ability.

A top-tier Catholic research university, the University of Dayton graduates innovators and scholars — servant leaders who use their knowledge and skills to positively impact the world. And our commitment to affordability helps ensure their success.

Our innovative tuition plan offers transparent pricing, fixed net-price tuition, no fees, money for textbooks and a study abroad scholarship. Does it make a difference? Absolutely. 

The Class of 2017 — the first to enroll under the plan — had higher retention and graduation rates, and lower student loan debt.  

At the University of Dayton, you’ll also find: 
  • 95% student success rate (employment, grad school or full-time volunteer program within six months of graduation).
  • An alumni mentoring program starting from day one.
  • Real-world learning opportunities. (We’re No. 16 in the nation for internship programs and in the top 50 nationally for “Colleges That Create Futures.”)
  • $162 million awarded in University scholarships and grants this year.
  • $6 million reduction in cumulative student loan debt (average of $5,000 less, per person).
  • Textbook scholarship, worth up to $4,000 (over four years).
  • A $3,000 study abroad scholarship and the opportunity to study abroad in China, Ireland or Spain at no additional cost.
