Admission & Aid

DePauw offers you a transformative education that ignites your curiosity and allows you to explore, knowing that no matter what path you choose, you’ll be successful.

  • We're committed to your success.

    Our Gold Commitment guarantees it.

  • We have your back from Day 1.

    A faculty adviser, a student mentor and a recent, successful graduate form a circle of support and will connect with you even before classes start. They’ll help you navigate the many pathways you can explore, or to develop your own.

  • Small classes taught by accomplished scholars.

    But we offer so much more: State-of-the-art facilities. Research opportunities few undergraduate institutions can match. So many study abroad opportunities we’re in the top 7 of all universities in the nation. Provocative lectures from some of the world’s most renowned leaders. Inspiring exhibitions by international artists.

  • Well-centered.

    Our eight centers provide beyond-the-classroom opportunities to apply what you learn. Any student in any major can start with our centers to dive deep into something that fascinates you, pursuing something that complements your major or something completely different. Either way, our “well-centered” students pursue interests that serve them well in in their careers and their life.

  • An investment in your success.

    Our alumni provide a passionate, hands-on investment in your success, regardless of your passion, in ways no other college or university offers. In the words of one current students, “These (alumni) set you up for life.”
