Denison helps prepare you for life – starting with understanding your finances here on campus. You’ll find practical information here about how to apply for financial aid, pay your tuition, locate employment on campus, get great lessons in financial literacy and more.
You may be surprised to know that tuition and fees, room and board, account only for about 60 percent of the funds needed to provide a quality Denison education. Thanks to the university’s alumni-supported, well-managed endowment, our students can afford an outstanding education at a price that is actually well below its true costs.
Payments for tuition and fees are due in July (for the fall semester) and December (for the spring semester). Payments may be made here.
The estimated charges for the 2017-18 academic year are $62,770. These charges are itemized below. Please note that Room and Board charges will vary with the type of accommodations chosen:
