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

4.14 Average Rating
It's expensive. NO kidding. Do your best in high school so that UD will offer you as much financial aid as they see fit. Apply for private scholarships as well. Expect to take out at least one student loan...this school is worth the expense, so there's no harm in applying to see where you stand.
Amanda from Clint, TX
UD is very expensive compared to public schools, but compared to other Catholic schools, its tuition is normal. Most students do receive a large amount of financial aid, and there are many merit-based scholarships for students who are willing to work hard. National Merit Finalists receive full tuition! Work study is also readily available for low income students.

The education and the atmosphere is definitely worth the money. UD is not very well funded, however, and all of the departments recently received budget cuts. There isn't a lot of money to go around for clubs and student government, but it is enough to keep the students happy. The cafeteria is not worth cost, but the comaraderie with other students is nice. The dorms are not as nice as they could be, and sometimes things take a little while to get fixed, but overall they are still pleasant places to be.

I think UD is worth the money, but if you would have to take so many loans that you're paying them off well into your 40's, it may be wiser to attend a different school.

Extremely pricey but UD gives out good scholarships and it's an investment towards your future. Make sure to keep up that GPA.
Kim from Arlington, TX
Most colleges are very expensive and UD is no exception, but like several other reviewers said: do really well in high school so you will qualify for scholarships. After talking to many people, a lot of us are here on generous scholarships. The quality education you receive here is worth the cost though. It is very rare to find a school that across the board uses original texts for the classes. You don't learn history from a text book, you read John Adams, Herodotus etc. I would recommend UD to anybody who wants to really learn.
Kathleen from Sykesville, MD
This was by far the cheapest Catholic university out of all the ones I applied to. The financial aid was very generous and definitely much more than what I was offered at similar, or even worse, Catholic and/or private institutions.
MC from NY
It's ridiculously expensive but so, so worth it. Be prepared to sign up for a lot of scholarships and financial aid, though.
Jamie from Haltom City, TX
With a private institution will always come a more expensive price tag, that almost goes without saying. At the University of Dallas, I find it has been worth the extra effort that's gone forth to fund my education. We receive such a multi-faceted education here with our Core Curriculum, and really benefit from the small class sizes and the excellent, well-versed faculty that the university has on tenure.
Christine from Spicewood, TX
I wouldn't trade my experience at UD over the past three years for the world. The cost is higher than I'd like personally, but I don't even consider it when I think about the value of my experience and education here
Brendan from San Juan Capistrano, CA
It is a private university, so there's no surprise this type of education is going to cost a little more. But with the financial assistance you get, and the vast array of scholarships available it is very affordable. Plus there's always scholarship opportunities all over campus.
