If you plan on coming to Dillard University, be sure to have all of your financial issues resolved, because waiting in line to speak to your financial advisor can be tedious. Also, as at any institution, it is best to become familiar with the most recent student course catalog so that picking classes for next semester will be a breeze.

If you are in need of a place of growth. This is the place for you. Although the school's main focus is on nursing , biology, mass communications, and criminal justice there is still a great variety of majors which includes all STEM Majors.
