Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
The tuition has increased but it is totally worth it. They have a great staff and awesome activities for student life body.
Nataly from Frisco, TX
Expensive for me, but I know that I serve a God that controls finances.
David from Center, TX
Yes, it is amazing education, but (speaking as a student who has to pay out of my own pocket) it is incredibly difficult to pay sometimes.
Bethany from Plano, TX
honestly, it's expensive. that's the biggest (and really only) complaint i hear over and over. however, it's workable. i'm paying for my education entirely on my own. i've recieved a lot of financial aid, but also have a job on campus that is really helping me get through all my payments. i really think dbu is worth it. and you are called by god to be here, he will prepare a way! his will, his bill.
Reagan from Garland, TX
DBU is expensive and my scholarships don't cover it all. my parents pay the rest but I just keep filling out more sholarships. If God really wants me at dbu He will provide. He's provided this last year and I have faith that He will these coming years.

Expensive, but totally worth it and DBU offers many scholarship opportunities!
CHRISTINA from Austin, TX
DBU is extremely expensive, but honestly, every single penny is worth it. The people who are here are the most selfless and sweet people you will ever meet.
Kailey from Dallas, TX
It is expensive, being a private school, but I know that the education I will receive will pay great dividends in the end.
Hannah from Glen Rose, TX
Being a private school, DBU can be a little expensive. Otherwise, I wouldn't be applying for this scholarship! But they are more than willing to help people be able to afford to go there. Almost everyone that I've talked to has the Christian Leadership Scholarship that they offer that pays for up to 40% of school fees. And as far as private christian schools, DBU is one of the cheapest in the country.
Holly from San Antonio, TX
Though Dallas Baptist University is a bit on the expensive side, there are ways to pay for it. DBU is more than generous in its scholarship awards. Make sure to apply for your Christian Leadership Scholarship.
