University of Notre Dame

Undergraduate tuition and fees at the University of Notre Dame will increase 3.7 percent for the 2017-18 academic year to $51,505. Average room and board rates of $14,890 will bring total student charges to $66,395.

The percentage increase matches that of last year and is the lowest at Notre Dame in more than a half century.

In a letter to parents and guardians of students returning for the next academic year, the University’s president, Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., expressed his gratitude to them for making a Notre Dame education possible, adding:

“We know well that paying for college involves significant sacrifices for families. We also know that there is no better preparation for life than a superb education, one that seeks to cultivate the mind as well as the heart. We strive always to be worthy of the trust you have placed in us, and to provide your student with the best possible educational experience.”

Student charges were set by the Board of Trustees at its Feb. 3 meeting.
