Aid for Off-Campus Study
Life-changing off-campus study program
With the start of the 2022-23 academic year all Denison University students who study abroad are charged Denison University tuition fees; this is a home fee structure. Denison University established a home fee structure for study abroad, allowing all eligible students to study abroad using the same terms as on-campus study. As a result, all students will be charged Denison University tuition and other costs such as a multiple occupancy room and the standard meal plan of The Hill.
The cost structure reflects the University’s belief that all Denison students should have the opportunity to study abroad. Student can apply the entirety of their financial aid awards, including merit scholarships toward the cost of a study abroad program if all financial aid requirements are met.
Yes. Denison merit awards, need-based institutional grants and federal aid is available for off-campus study for U.S. citizens, resident aliens and international students who qualify.

- Federal Work-Study
Students receiving tuition remission from non-GLCA schools should check with appropriate officials at the college providing the tuition benefit to determine which fees and the off-campus program may be covered by tuition remission.
Denison University tuition remission does not pay fees for abroad/off-campus programs with the exception of the Denison-sponsored Oak Ridge program and the Giessen Exchange Program.
The Office of Financial Aid must receive your FAFSA data by April 1.
No, we do not offer financial aid for summer programs.
Steps for receiving aid for an off-campus study program:
- Apply for the program with the Off-Campus Study Office by the stated deadline, generally before Thanksgiving Break.
- The Off-Campus Study Office will notify the Office of Financial Aid of your approval.
- If you have never filed for financial aid, you can file the FAFSA to see if you qualify for federal financial aid that can be used for off-campus study.
- If the financial aid award includes a Federal Direct Loan or a Denison Scholar Loan these award types must be in an accepted status and all loan requirements complete, such as the promissory note.
An Administration Off-Campus Fee is billed by Denison. If you decided to go off campus for a full year, the fee is charged again, it is billed per semester.
