Tuition and Financial Aid

The Dougherty Family College is designed to provide a high quality, personalized and affordable education. With generous support from donors and potential access to financial aid, the Dougherty Family College aspires to help students earn an Associate of Arts degree while incurring minimal debt.

The estimated tuition and fees for 2017-2018 are $15,000. To meet those costs, each student will be considered for scholarships and grants from the university and its generous donors and corporate sponsors.

Additionally, students will be required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), using the school code 002345. For those unable to complete the FAFSA, they will be required to complete the Minnesota Dream Act Application. Please note: the university has not yet secured authorization to award federal/state financial aid to Dougherty Family College students. Until the necessary authorization is secured, we cannot provide estimates of individual student financial aid eligibility.

It is our goal to make the DFC affordable; as low as $1,000 per year for some of our neediest applicants.
