Financial Aid

The Financial Aid Office is your partner. We provide access to a DePauw education by proactively serving and educating families of varied economic backgrounds.

Financial aid is administered with a commitment towards equity, consistency and transparency. It's important to note that the direct cost may not be the true cost to your family. We offer merit scholarships for academic achievement, accomplished leadership and involvement.  We also offer financial aid based on need.  Paying for college is a partnership between students, their families and the University. We carefully look at each student's unique financial circumstances and offer each student the best package we possibly can.
