Tuition & Costs

Tuition and Fees

You may be surprised to know that tuition and fees, housing and meals, 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.

The charges for the 2022-23 academic year are $74,400. These charges are itemized below. Please note that Housing and Meal charges will vary with the type of accommodations chosen:
