Small class sizes mean hands-on training and individualized attention. All this with an affordable, public school price that's among the best values in the region.

Cost and Aid

Funding your next adventure

Transferring to DSU is a smart choice with benefits that last a lifetime. We offer a private-school education at a public-school price. Plus, we’re committed making it affordable for every Trojan.

If you need help paying for your academic journey, you’re in good company. 74% of our students receive some kind of financial aid. And in the 2017-2018 school year, we awarded an average of $10,913 per student.

In addition to federal aid, you may also qualify for athletic, merit-based, or other scholarships.
