Costs & Financial Aid

You can save a ton of money by coming to Delta.

It costs less than half what you’d pay at a public university ($117 per contact hour), but you get the same quality education. Plus, Delta students were awarded $34 million in financial aid last year and  $600,000 in Delta scholarships. That’s a lot of money available to students.
