MY DOG ATE MY DEBT!

YOUR D'YOUVILLE STUDENT DEBT, PAID IN FULL BY DYU.

Becoming a Saint means you’re a part of a community that always gives back. Now it’s time for D’Youville to give back to you.

We’re proud to introduce our first-of-its-kind lottery system that gives undergraduates of D’Youville University the opportunity to begin their careers with a fresh start—and without D’Youville loan debt. Each semester one graduate from our associate and bachelor programs will have their D’Youville student debt paid in full.

The My Dog Ate My Debt program will first be implemented in D’Youville’s upcoming Winter Commencement Ceremony in 2022, with summer 2022 graduates and current students eligible for entry, and will continue to run at each commencement for years beyond.
