Types of Aid


You might be surprised to learn that Denison’s financial aid packages are more generous than what many public universities can offer. Each year, we make a private four-year college education affordable for hundreds of students and their families. Through a combination of institutional grant aid funded by Denison, federal and state grant aid, work study, and manageable loans, we commit to providing financial aid packages that meet 100% of demonstrated financial need for all U.S. citizens and permanent residents. Separately, merit-based scholarships are available to reward excellence and help make a Denison education affordable.
