Admissions & Aid



With more than 90 programs of study, you will have the opportunity to explore your options and find your calling. Our core program provides a foundation for our students' lives and a context for their studies. We approach everything—engineering, nursing, football, choir, EVERYTHING—with the understanding that Christ is Lord over all.


More than 90% of Dordt students live on campus, creating a community experience that sticks with our alumni. We encourage our students to attend on-campus worship and attend a local church. You can get involved on campus through clubs, student activities, and more.


Our students are uniquely equipped to do more as Christians in their fields. Your Dordt education will prepare you to take on the challenges of life with confidence
