Scholars, athletes, teachers, coaches, entrepreneurs, doctors, lawyers, politicians, scientists, activists—all can be champions, and at Denison, they are.

For use if your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) was selected for review in a process called verification.

As an intellectual community, Denison’s vitality lies in inquiry and exploration—in consistently seeking out new understandings and points of view. Therefore, we see not just the value but the necessity of fostering a community of diverse individuals: students, faculty and staff of varying backgrounds, religions, ethnicities, abilities and worldviews who all recognize the importance of sharing their unique insights and ideas. Every voice speaks to a new perspective, so every voice matters.

Students who are currently enrolled and are completing the FAFSA will be asked: “Have you been convicted for the possession or sale of illegal drugs for an offense that occurred while you were receiving federal student aid?” Students who answer “Yes” will be asked an additional series of questions to determine if the conviction affects their eligibility for federal student aid.

Early Decision is the application process in which students make a commitment to a first-choice institution, where, if admitted, they definitely will enroll.

Denison University employees and spouses/same-sex domestic partners, who are non-degree seeking students (not admitted through Admission) are eligible to participate in this program and take course work for credit or audit. For further detail on staff educational benefits and eligibility please refer to the Benefits section in the Staff Handbook

For use if your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) was selected for review in a process called verification. The law says that before awarding Federal Student Aid, we may ask you to confirm the information you reported on your FAFSA. If there are differences, your FAFSA information may need to be corrected. You and your spouse, if married, must complete and sign this worksheet, and submit the form and other required documents to the Office of Financial Aid. If you have questions about verification, contact the Office of Financial Aid as soon as possible so that your financial aid will not be delayed.

The purpose of the Certification of Finances is to help colleges and universities obtain complete and accurate information about the funds available to international applicants who want to study in the United States. Strict government regulations, rising education costs and economic conditions have made verifying the financial resources of international applicants essential. Institutions do not have the option of deciding whether to verify the financial resources of their international applicants; financial verification must be made prior to institutional issuance of a Certificate of Eligibility (Form I-20 or DS-2019).

At Denison University we respect your privacy. Any information you provide to us will be used solely for admission purposes. Denison University will strive to protect your privacy. If you are concerned about privacy and confidentiality, you may call Mollie Rodenbeck in the Office of Admission at 740-587-6276.

To be eligible to receive federal, state and institutional financial aid and to continue to receive that aid a student must maintain satisfactory academic progress toward the completion of his/her degree by maintaining a cumulative 2.0 GPA in addition to earning the required number of hours after each semester of attendance.

The quality of your academic performance, the rigor of courses selected and your grade-point average are the most important factors considered by the Admission Committee. Submission of the results of the SAT I or the ACT is optional. Students who elect not to submit either an ACT or SAT are strongly encouraged to interview either on campus or with an area alumni representative. SAT II Subject Tests are also not required although you may provide these scores as additional information in support of your application for admission. International applicants must submit the results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the results of the SAT I. Your application essay, as well as written statements from your college advisor and an academic teacher, give us a greater understanding of your personal character and motivation. Important also is the quality, rather than the quantity, of your extracurricular accomplishments, whether school, community, job-related or life experience.

Independent of the admission process and solely for the purpose of the College's research, students who have taken the standardized tests must submit the official results of these tests upon matriculation.

Choosing a college or university is different from other decisions you will make. The school you choose will leave its mark on you, telling people something about you before you are even introduced. Your college or university will admit you to a particular company of alumni, present you with a particular range of options and opportunities, and open a particular set of doors for your future.

The personal statement is the opportunity to differentiate yourself from others and to sell yourself to the school, institution or particular program with whom you are applying.
