    It's definitely an expensive school, but if you were a good student in high school, they are really liberal with financial aid. I personally got a really helpful scholarship and grant from the university itself. Plus, they lock you in for tuition all four years, which means that even if the university raises tuition costs for the incoming class, your tuition price will not change all four years. This is really nice because you can figure out exactly what you'll be paying all four years. If you go on an official visit on campus, they also give you a $500 book scholarship per semester just like that which is so helpful. The quality of your degree and education is top notch, and they do a lot in the career center to encourage you to prepare for life past college even starting your freshman year.

    It's definitely pricey, however they give out a lot of scholarship money and it is definitely worth it for the community and the education.

    The tuition is kind of scary but it seems like the school is worth it! Plus they have tons of financial aid options.

    Although Dayton is costly, I would not trade this experience for anything else. Dayton has become my home and I now have a second family there.
