Transfer Student Financial Aid

As you make your transition to the University of Dayton, one of the first things you should know is that we are considered one of the most affordable options among comparable universities and colleges. 

As a Catholic, Marianist University, our mission to be transparent means we want to position you for success. Our graduates leave with average student loan debt below the national average, more than 97 percent of our undergraduate students receive some form of financial aid, and 97 percent of the class of 2021 was employed, in graduate school or in a full-time volunteer program within six months of graduation.

Our innovative tuition plan provides a transparent view of your yearly costs up front, and there are no hidden fees. That means there are no surprises, so you can be confident in our costs and plan for success.
