Tuition & Aid
Investing in Yourself
A college education is a big investment. It’s also one of the best investments you can make. A U.S. Census study shows that lifetime earnings for people who go to college is $450,000 to $1.5 million more than high school graduates.
Dunwoody has a long track record of successful college graduates: 98.7% of our 2016 graduating class found a job in the field that they majored in. Dunwoody also offers lifetime career placement assistance and has bachelor’s completion degree options for our certificate and associate’s degree graduates who want further education.
We also know that your investment in yourself isn’t just financial—it requires a lot of time and hard work. That’s why we start you right away in technical classes that count towards your major; why we have a cohort model so that you’re sure to get the classes you need to progress in your studies; why we help you find internships and part-time work in your field before you graduate; and why we offer academic and personal support if things get off track. We want you to succeed and are committed to working with you all the way to graduation, on to your first job, and throughout your career.

For more detailed info on what your specific costs and financial aid would be, contact the Dunwoody Admissions Team or use our:
The Net Price Calculator is a tool where you can input information about yourself and what you want to study and receive a snapshot of expected costs and financial aid. While the snapshot is valuable, it does not show all forms of aid available to you. A more precise and comprehensive picture will be provided in the financial aid award letter you receive after applying and being accepted to Dunwoody.
Financial Aid & Scholarships
Financial Aid helps bridge the gap between what students and their family can pay and what it costs to attend Dunwoody. Most Dunwoody students receive some form of financial aid, including federal and state grants, federal loans, and work study.
Dunwoody also offers scholarships to admitted students. In fact, we were able provide $1.6 million in scholarships and other institutional aid to students for the 2016-17 academic year. There is no need to apply for most of these scholarships as they are automatically awarded based on a variety of criteria. Faculty and financial aid counselors can also direct you to information additional scholarship opportunities, especially those awarded by industry-related groups who have a long track record of providing additional aid to Dunwoody students.
We do have three scholarship programs that require an additional application:
