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

3.58 Average Rating
I love Dominican (I will be an incoming sophomore), and I find that with the combination of merit-based scholarships Dominican offers, private scholarships, and let's not forget...loans, Dominican is doable. The social life is there, but more importantly the small classes, knowledgeable counselors, and helpful career counseling department are all reasons to give Dominican a try.
Amber from El Sobrante, CA
The school is rather pricey however every penny is worth it. Dominican promises graduation in 4 years and any longer that it takes they will pay the remainder of the tuition. I think that's a great deal.
Nina from Richmond, CA
This university is quite expensive but it is very likely that you will receive some sort of financial aid.
Angelina from American Canyon, CA
Dominican is Pricey but you get a GREAT education for your money the experience is worth it.
Tamara from Palmdale, CA
The school is great academically and all, but I'm not sure exactly where all of my money is going. Maybe they are spending too much on something that's not necessary...?
Carrie from Sonoma, CA
Dominican University is worth every penny. The experience of campus is very pleasant.
Jessica from Fairfield, CA
