Financial Aid at Donnelly

Cost

Paying for college

Your education is an investment in your future. Although Donnelly has a cost, we are proud to be an high quality, affordable option in the heart of Kansas City. In fact, we were named in the top 100 most affordable private, nonprofit, 4-year colleges and universities in the country according to the U.S. Department of Education.

More than 90% of our students receive financial assistance (grants, loans and/or scholarships), and many have the opportunity to leave Donnelly with little or no student loan debt.

Each student’s situation is different, and you might still be wondering, “How do I pay for college?”  It is vital for you to visit our Financial Aid office in person, and we’ll try to help you find your answer. We will walk you through the process of getting financial aid so you can make your dreams of attending college a reality. Don’t stress; we’re here to help you. You can also use our Net Price Calculator to give you an idea of what the cost of a Donnelly education will be.


Deadlines matter

To get the most financial support, deadlines matter. Apply to Donnelly, complete our scholarships application  and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the priority deadline: April 1. If it's past April 1, please don't hesitate to still apply. Often we have resources available.
