How Aid Works

At the University of Notre Dame, we believe real value is a four year education that lasts a lifetime.

Our students learn from professors who are experts in their fields, engage in research and creative projects, experience a global education, and become ethical leaders prepared for careers that make a difference.

Because we believe in the value of a Notre Dame education, we are one of less than 60 schools in the United States that commits to meeting the full demonstrated financial need of our undergraduate students for all four years.  In essence, we invest in you.  Meeting each student’s full demonstrated need allows us to be more sensitive to a family’s individual situation and assist talented students from a wide range of backgrounds.

The Office of Financial Aid thoroughly reviews each student’s application on an individual basis. In addition, our admissions process is need-blind, which means a student’s financial situation is not considered in the evaluation of their application for admission.
