Campus (Spring) The University of Dallas recently received another high mark of distinction from Money Magazine, recognizing the university for its significant merit-based scholarships awarded to students.

“The University of Dallas has long been recognized for offering a thorough education in the classics of Western civilization,” said Executive Vice President for Enrollment and Student Services John Plotts. “It’s an honor to be identified as one of the country’s premier institutions. This ranking acknowledges the university’s continued efforts to provide a quality private education that is both accessible and affordable.”

This year’s ranking includes both private and public schools from across the country, whereas last year, Money declared the university No. 1 in “America’s Best Private Colleges for Merit Aid.” In July, Money also named UD one of the “Best Colleges for Your Money,” as well as one of the “Best Colleges in the South.”
