    Although UD may seem a bit expensive, I think it's worth it. They usually can find you scholarships! Plus most of the facilities are new, so there is a lot of new equipment. It's a small campus so it doesn't take very long to get to class; great for winter!

    It gives out quite a bit of aide. Most students aren't paying much. However if you're not poor you don't get very many scholarship opportunities.

    Since the school is a private school, it's a little pricey. Still apply for financial aid, the school is private, it has more money to give.

    I think it would be nice if the tuition and books were a little more affordable. I would like to see Dubuque move to a book rental options as now many other colleges are offering this would be one way they could help keep the student cost down. My overall experience with Dubuque has been good and I do love the smaller campus and class feel. I would recommend this school to my family and friends
