Understanding College Costs

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

When comparing costs, you should remember that 80 percent of Duquesne students receive some form of financial aid and your final costs may be more affordable than you realize.

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

Anyone who has an interest in attending Duquesne should meet with our financial aid office before making a decision.
