Three Family Examples 

Income is only one factor we consider when determining financial aid. We also review household size, number of family members in college, assets, and special circumstances. These three examples show students who enrolled at Notre Dame in the fall of 2022 who paid much less than the published price of tuition and fees because of need-based scholarships and grants.
