We are a top-tier national Catholic university.

In 2018, 100% of UD students who applied to dental school were admitted, and more than 70% were admitted to medical school.

As an undergrad, you can work alongside faculty on research projects—and maybe get your own work published.

97% of Education and Health Sciences students are employed, volunteering, or in graduate school within six months of graduation.

With more than 8,000 full-time undergraduates, a 15:1 student-faculty ratio, and an average class size of 26, we are constantly interacting with and inspired by one another.

We don’t just travel—we make a difference. Through Global Brigades, the world’s largest student-led global health and sustainable development organization, you can serve communities in need.

When’s the game? Our Division I athletics offer thrills for athletes and spectators alike.

Our Marianist Catholic tradition embraces community, and approximately 85% of students live on campus. It’s one of the reasons our students are among the happiest in the nation.

Transparent Affordability: Our Four-Year Tuition Plan

At UD, you’ll know the cost of a four-year education up front. UD grants and scholarships increase each year to offset any tuition increases, so your net tuition stays the same all four years. 

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

70% of students nationally have reported skipping buying books because of costs. At UD, if you visit campus and file the FAFSA, you can receive a textbook scholarship worth up to $4,000 over four years.

Because of our transparent tuition plan, graduates leave UD with an average student loan debt that’s below the national average for private four-year universities.
