Types of Financial Aid

Scholarships (merit-based)

All students who submit an application for admission are considered for merit-based scholarships, which range from $5,000 per year to full tuition. Review our comprehensive list of merit scholarships »

Financial Aid (need-based)

You’ve read it on this page 3 times already, but Denison meets 100% of demonstrated financial need! We are committed to making Denison affordable for ALL of our admitted students. Denison will determine your financial need from both the FAFSA and CSS Profile information. At Denison, need-based aid is offered through a variety of grants and loans. Learn more about types of need-based aid »

Financial aid packages are awarded at the time of admission.

Please keep in mind that applicants who do not apply for need-based financial aid during the admission process will not be able to apply for need-based financial aid later.

For international students, the financial aid process is a little different. Learn More »


Financial Aid Deadlines

Prospective Students

The deadlines for financial aid are the same as admission application deadlines. Students applying for financial aid must complete their FAFSA and CSS Profiles by the following dates:

- Early Decision I: November 15
- Early Decision II: January 15
- Regular Decision: January 15

Returning Students

Returning student financial aid packages are automatically reviewed and completed. Nothing is required of the student. Returning students can expect their merit scholarship to remain unchanged. If there are changes to a student’s aid package, those changes will be communicated via email.

Award Letters

An award letter, containing information about scholarships, grants, and working on campus, will be made available in the student’s applicant portal upon admission.

Returning students are notified via email that their award details for the next academic year are available in their MyFinancialAid portals through MyDenison. These notifications start in March.

Still have questions?

Does Denison provide fee waivers for the CSS Profile?

Denison does not require, or accept, the CSS Profile. Denison requires the Denison International Student Certification of Finances from all applicants which is free to submit.

How do I submit the Denison International Student Certification of Finances?

Once you submit your application to Denison, we will send you a confirmation email that includes log-in information for your student portal. Here, you’ll be able to upload your completed Certification of Finances.

Is Denison need-aware for international students?

Denison is need-aware in the application process as this allows us to meet 100% of demonstrated need for all admitted students.
