A visit to campus before the semester starts is the best way to meet with your advisors, get your questions answered, and explore the campus. Even if you've been to campus previously, a visit before classes begin is the best way to experience life at D'Youville, and when the semester starts, you'll have everything in order, know the best study spots, and already have a favorite place to relax after class.
We are looking forward to you joining our community and taking on new roles as a D'Youville Spartan. To stay on track and make sure your first day at D'Youville goes smoothly, make sure to submit your deposit (above) and then use the checklist below to ensure you've checked off all your tasks and are ready to start the semester.
At D'Youville, we're committed to ensuring our students graduate with a strong financial future. We show that commitment through the high income potential of our graduates and through connecting our students to both D'Youville scholarships and outside scholarships. The first step in the process begins with the FAFSA.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the form that helps determine your eligibility for financial aid. If you're a student, or parent of a student, you can find full details on our FAFSA resources webpage. You'll receive a notification about your financial aid in your MyDYC account. If you have any questions, please reach out to one of our Financial Aid Counselors.
Residents the State of New York are eligible for the Tuition Assistance Program. After filing the FAFSA, a pre-printed TAP application will be generated automatically. Full details are available on the D'Youville Grants page.
Once we receive your financial forms, we'll review your information and explain your financial aid benefits. You'll get a notification in your email and in your MyDYC account. All D'Youville undergraduate students are considered for merit-based scholarships. When you're enrolled at D'Youville, you'll also have access to ScholarshipUniverse, an online tool that automatically matches you to internal, local, and national scholarships throughout your time at the College.
New York State law requires proof of immunization for measles, mumps, rubella and meningitis before registering for classes. To ensure nothing delays your enrollment, you should:
Visit D'Youville's Health Center webpage for assistance, insurance information, and other helpful information.
Regardless if you're a first time freshman, transfer student, or graduate student, we'll need official transcripts for our records. Any institution you've attended, whether it is a high school or a previous college, will be able to submit official transcripts to us. To submit transcripts, you'll contact the transcript issuer and have them sent to our admissions office at:
D'Youville Admissions Office
320 Porter Ave
Buffalo, NY 14201
If you're taking Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) exams, you'll need to have official scores sent to D'Youville. For more information, view our AP/IB policies.
If you're a transfer student who is currently enrolled at another college or university, make sure to send your official college transcript(s) prior to final enrollment at D'Youville. You'll also need to provide proof of high school graduation.
Our Student Success Center is a one-stop office dedicated to ensuring our students are successful at D'Youville. Once they receive your acceptance information, they'll send an invitation to meet with your academic advisor. As part of your Student Success team, your academic advisor will help you select your classes, assist in transferring credits, and map out your future at D'Youville. This typically happens in April or May for the fall semester, and in November for the spring semester.
National statistics show that students who live on campus perform better academically and are more engaged on campus. At D'Youville, we encourage students to live on campus and take advantage of our community and our location in Buffalo's West Side neighborhood.
Studies show that students who live in residence halls acclimate more rapidly to the collegiate environment and are more satisfied with their overall experience. For this reason, we require incoming students in the Physician Assistant and Occupational Therapy programs to on campus for the first two years of study.
To reserve on-campus housing, you need to submit a housing deposit and meet housing requirements. You can submit the non-refundable $100 deposit online, by mail, or in person. The Student Engagement Office will contact you with the housing forms, once your housing deposit has been processed. The housing forms, including the application and roommate questionnaire are also available online, beginning in April.
At D'Youville our orientation events, Spartan Springboard, you'll have the chance to meet fellow students, get answers to your final questions, and learn about the resources here dedicated to helping you succeed. You'll receive an invitation to attend in your email, be sure to reserve your spot early.
