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.
