Tuition and Financial Aid

A degree from a private university like Dominican University of California is more accessible than you might think. We’re here to help you and your family discover the possibilities.

We know affordability is one of the most important concerns when it comes to choosing the perfect school. When comparing pricing, it’s important to look beyond the listed tuition. 

Your total cost of attendance includes tuition, room and board, and other fees; however, your actual out-of-pocket expenses are often much lower than this figure. Most of our students defray their cost through a combination of scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study. 

In fact, 99% of our first-year undergraduate students in 2021 received scholarships and grants which are financial aid awards that do not need to be repaid.

Net Price Calculator

The Net Price Calculator is designed to provide your financial aid eligibility based on an estimate of your expected costs. This estimate will demonstrate how you and your family can use financial aid to help bridge the gap between the total costs and your ability to pay.

Making an Informed Decision

Remember: Before making a decision, apply for financial aid; it’s free, and we can help you navigate the process and explain the options presented in your award letter. 

We’re available for online counseling. Visit our appointment calendar to find a time that works for you.
