An Education with Value(s)
We believe that the value of a Notre Dame education far exceeds its price tag. It's more than just giving quality instruction - it's giving students the conviction and open mind to put their knowledge into action effectively. With the help of one of the widest and most influential alumni networks in the world, 98% of graduates are traditionally placed in careers, graduate schools, or service opportunities within six months of graduation. Studies conducted by the University show the average 2017 Notre Dame graduate’s salary was $63,000 six months after graduation.
A Notre Dame education is about much more than our graduates' earning potential. In addition to financial benefits, our students are shaped in profound ways as they learn from scholars of the first rank, participate in research opportunities, study abroad, and are exposed to a myriad of experiences that help them become educated, ethical leaders prepared to face the future.
Beyond the innovative teaching and learning that takes place in our classrooms, laboratories, and studios, our students benefit immeasurably from interactions with peers from across the country and around the world – in residence halls, on quads and in the libraries, and in the greater South Bend community. At Notre Dame, we believe real value is four years of education that last a lifetime.
"When you come to Notre Dame, you know, it’s a lifetime commitment; you’re always part of the Notre Dame family." - Joe Boyle '16
