Financial Aid & Scholarship
Federal, state, institutional, and private fund(s) are used to assist eligible students in funding their education. Financial aid can be a combination of scholarships, grants, loans, waivers, and student employment. Scholarships and grants are considered “free money” that the student is not required to repay; however, loans and student employment are considered self-help aid. Most loans require repayment when a student becomes enrolled less than half time or graduates. Student employment includes both work-study positions and part-time employment positions, either on- or off-campus.

2011-2013, Master of Business Administration - MBA
It was a long pending dream to join MBA program, but due to factors like cost, institution brand and time were not in perfectly aligned to join any university. Finally my search came to an end after finding University of Dallas and it was a good bet for my MBA program. To gold plate the MBA program, industry experienced professors teach the subjects. Finally the touch down was priceless with great knowledge and experience.
2002-2004, B. A.
I grew up in Seattle, Washington and I have never regretted traveling to Texas to attend the University of Dallas. In my opinion, it is the best school in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, the best Catholic school in the South, the strongest Rome Program of any American university, and it provides its students with an education that rivals any in the country. My studies at UD trained me well for my career as an attorney. And its graduate school entrance rates demonstrate that the University of Dallas prepares its students extremely well for most post-graduate programs. Attending this little gem in the heart of Texas was one of the best decisions of my life.
