Apply for Financial Aid
Affording college is sometimes the first consideration for a family, and sometimes it’s the last, but it’s an important part of the college decision regardless. It is good to be informed of Denison’s financial aid philosophy, policies, and deadlines. Be in touch; we’re here to help anytime!
Denison is committed to making its exceptional education affordable for all admitted students. It is one of very few colleges nationwide that is both need-blind for admission (meaning the admission committee does not consider finances when reviewing an admission application) and that meets 100% of the demonstrated financial need of its students. Each year, thanks to loyal and generous alumni donations, Denison awards millions of dollars in need-based financial aid and merit-based scholarships to its students.
All students who submit admission applications are considered for merit-based scholarships, which range from $5,000 to full tuition per year. Feel free to view our comprehensive list of merit scholarships.
Financial Aid (need-based)
Being considered for need-based financial aid is as simple as completing the required forms by the deadlines listed below (all of which correspond with the admission deadlines). Financial aid packages are awarded at the time of admission.
