Education That Makes a Difference
For more than 150 years, Niagara University has been educating students in the Catholic and Vincentian tradition. This tradition emphasizes ethics, lifelong learning and service to others, and prepares our graduates for lives and careers that are both successful and fulfilling. Within these pages, you will learn how the university is making a difference in the lives of our students - and how those students, in turn, are using the knowledge gained here to make a difference on campus, in the surrounding community, and throughout the world.
Mind, Body, Heart, and Soul
A Niagara education is designed to nurture all areas of a student's growth, resulting in graduates who are primed for leadership roles in their careers and within their communities. Our curriculum and approach to teaching offer students many opportunities for applying knowledge to solve real world challenges.
With more than 80 majors, seven preprofessional options, and several five-year combined master's programs, you can design a course of study that meets your career goals. Whatever you choose, you can't go wrong: All four of the university's academic colleges have received the highest rankings from the top accreditation boards in their fields.

An Affordable, Private Education
Because private college tuitions can be costlier than those at public institutions, many students think they won't be able to afford this kind of exceptional experience. Fortunately, that's not the case. What many may not know is that private colleges like Niagara can offer students a wider range of grants, scholarships, and loans. In fact, Niagara University offers great merit scholarships for freshmen and transfers, and a unique level tuition plan to help families and students afford and manage a Niagara education.
