Dayton Costs


The estimated cost items are divided between billable and non-billable. The billable costs are those items that will be billed directly to the student and show up on their student account. Billable items will be posted to your student’s account shortly after the course registration period ends. Non-billable items are additional costs that applicable to the program that are not billed by UD, such as airfare, passport, visa costs and sometimes room and board overseas. These are only estimates and are provided to help the student plan, financially. 

Financial Aid

Students are strongly encouraged to talk with a financial aid advisor when considering an education abroad program. The financial aid office is able to provide more specific information regarding the type of aid a student might apply towards their designated program. Typically, UD aid will only apply to UD programs. Federal or private aid may apply to any program, if planned appropriately.
