Understanding College Costs

Comparing college costs is a complex process. Your actual cost of education depends on the academic scholarships and financial aid that you qualify for, the program you attend, whether you live on campus, off campus and how far you commute.

In many cases, the net cost of a Duquesne education is similar to state-related institutions in Pennsylvania.

We also provide payment plans to help budget each semester's charges over several months.
