Types of Expenses
The Cost of Attendance for each program serves as a guideline for how much a student should budget to attend Dominican. There are two components to these budgets:
- Direct expenses (such as tuition, fees, and, if living on-campus, room & board) that are assessed by, and paid directly to the University.
- Indirect expenses (such as books & supplies, transportation, personal expenses, and, if living off-campus, room & board) that are paid to entities outside of the University.
These expenses added together determines the maximum amount of aid a student is able to receive from all sources in an academic year. The costs of tuition, fees, and on-campus room and board are established by the University’s Board of Trustees annually and are subject to change.
