Family First Tuition Model
The Family First tuition model is designed to help families budget for their children's education. The model enhances our families' Notre Dame experience through its predictability and simplicity. The model locks the tuition rate for the incoming Freshman Class over the period of 4 years so that families do not incur any additional tuition costs and can budget accordingly.
The tuition rate for the Class of 2025 is $16,750.00 and is locked into place for all four years. Over the long-term, our Class of 2025 families can expect to save close to $4,000.
