Tuition and Fees

When choosing a college, it makes sense to look at costs, but that is only one factor to consider as you plan for your future.  Quality of education, your abilities and interests, and the college's programs, location and alumni success should all play a role in your decision. The DePauw Financial Aid Office will work with you to find the best combination of options for funding your education.
