Cost of Attendance

The estimated annual cost of attendance at Dillard University for the 2023-2024 and the 2022-2023 school years are listed below. These costs are based on full-time enrollment for the entire Fall & Spring semesters.

 

The Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships utilizes these budgets to determine how much financial aid will be offered. Total financial aid offered from all sources, including private sources, cannot exceed the total cost of attendance. Students who have unusual circumstances are encouraged to contact the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships.  A Financial Aid Counselor can evaluate your situation and with appropriate documentation can possibly make an adjustment to your Cost of Attendance (Budget) to allow for the personal circumstances (i.e., the purchase of a computer).

Billable Costs:

Billable costs are charges that must be paid directly to the University. Students are responsible for billable costs upon registration. Payment plans are available. Contact the Office of Business and Finance for more information regarding payment arrangements.

 

*First time students incur an additional one-time fee of $470 for Student Orientation and Assessment fees.

 

**On-campus rooms and rates will vary based on the housing arrangements. The above rate is valid for Camphor Hall, Williams Hall, Straight Hall and Hartzell Hall based on double occupancy. Room and board costs for students residing in other on-campus housing facilities will be adjusted based on actual living arrangements. Housing includes an additional fee of $326 per academic year, which is reflected in the charts above.

 

Note:  If adjustment(s) are made to the student's charges on student account (tuition, housing, meals/meal plan, etc.), the student's budget/cost of attendance (COA) will also be adjusted (up or down based on the adjustment made by Business and Finance). The adjustment may negatively impact the student's financial aid eligibility (i.e. decrease financial aid award).  

 

Non-Billable Costs:

Non-billable costs are estimated expenses that may be incurred by the student. These expenses are not paid to the University. Indirect costs will vary based on several factors, such as individual spending habits and personal preferences.
