    Unfortunately, like any private school, Duquesne is pretty pricey. Fortunately, they do give out pretty good scholarships ranging from $6,500 to $15,000 in just academics alone. If you are a music student, you can expect the same amount for a music scholarship as well. I think that their overall effort to help you afford the university is a great asset, and the school itself is a beautiful campus.

    I think for as expensive as Duquesne is, tuition is definitely worth it. The teachers really care about their students, the advisers are magnificent, and the students are really accepting.
