a current student here
As a private institution, you can expect to pay more. I believe our current tuition and room/board add up to about $40,000 a year once you are hit with fees for things like dining halls and science labs. Most students that I know have about $15,000 in scholarship provided by the university. Merit Scholarships are based on ACT/SAT scores, which the university allows your to super score (take the best score from each section and combine it no matter how many times you have taken each test). Bluntly, if you do not get scholarship money from Dayton your test scores are probably too low for you to succeed academically here and another university would probably be a better choice. The high cost of attendance does pay off, however. Our freshman dorms were significantly nicer than those of my friends that went to other universities in Ohio and the campus looks beautiful with brick walkways, coordinating buildings, open green space, and a fountain engraved with the University of Dayton insignia.
