Four-Year Tuition Plan

TUITION
At most universities, tuition increases each year. At UD, your grants and scholarships increase each year too. The result? The net tuition you pay stays the same all four years.

TEXTBOOKS
Nationally, 70% of students reported skipping buying books because of costs. If you visit campus and file the FAFSA, you can receive a textbook scholarship worth up to $4,000 (over four years).

FOUR-YEAR success
Because of our four-year tuition plan, UD students have reduced borrowing by more than 22%, and our four-year graduation rate increased eight percentage points in just one year.

FEES
Most universities charge fees for labs, courses, orientation, etc. At UD, there are no surcharges, fees, or hidden expenses. There are no surprises here.
