Financial Aid

The Financial Aid Office is your partner. The Financial Aid staff will be available to visitors Monday - Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. All visitors must check in at the front desk located on the first floor.

Financial aid is administered with a commitment towards equity, consistency and transparency. Remember, the direct cost may not be the true cost to your family. We proactively serve and educate families on all of their available options to make sure DePauw University's transformative educational experience is affordable and accessible. We're committed to your success in and out of the classroom. 

We offer you merit scholarships to celebrate your academic achievement, accomplished leadership and involvement, as well as financial aid based on need. We carefully look at each student's unique financial circumstances so we can offer you the best package possible. 

Our Financial Aid Office provides information and assistance to students all year.

  • We are open from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday. 
  • Give us a call or email if you have questions, or set up an appointment with our helpful staff, call (765) 658-4030 or email us at financialaid@depauw.edu

Net Price Calculator

The Net Price Calculator is a tool that provides a preliminary estimate of federal, state and institutional aid eligibility. It helps new first-year undergraduate students and their families gauge what aid they can expect to be awarded and determine the cost that remains after aid.
