Tuition & Financial Aid
Dominican is one of the most affordable universities on both the U.S. News & World Report top-tier and Colleges of Distinction lists. As a result, our students typically have 18 percent less in federal student loans than the national average and rank among the best in low total indebtedness.
Dominican's tuition is at or below the national average for four-year private colleges and universities, and more than 90 percent of our incoming students receive some form of financial aid.

Net Price Calculator
We back up our commitment to personal financial responsibility with our Net Price Calculator, which lets you estimate what you will pay in full-time tuition after factoring in projected financial aid (entering freshmen only).
To begin the financial aid process, complete the 2013-2014 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and list Dominican University (code 001750) as the institution to receive the information.
Once you have completed the FAFSA, we will consider you automatically for all the aid programs for which you qualify. We encourage you to file your FAFSA as soon as possible after January 1. If you are an Illinois resident, you must file your FAFSA by March 1. In some cases, you may be required to submit additional information to Dominican's financial aid office.
College Scorecards in the U.S. Department of Education’s College Affordability and Transparency Center make it easier for you to search for a college that is a good fit for you. You can use the College Scorecard to find out more about a college’s affordability and value so you can make more informed decisions about which college to attend.
