We empower your achievement

We are committed to access for students regardless or who they are or where they come from. At DePauw you will be part of a tradition that dates to 1837 when our original charter called for the community to maintain the school “for the benefit of the youth of every class of citizens, and of every denomination, who shall be freely admitted to equal advantages and privileges of education.”

As your partner throughout the financial aid process, we are here to assist you in making this exceptional form of education possible. Through their generous gifts, our alumni and donor are also your partner. At DePauw, we believe in commitment. The Gold Commitment sets the bar high.

Our Commitment to your success is serious. Let's work together to make DePauw possible.
