Financial Aid

You can do this.

It’s the biggest argument against going to college: “It’s just so expensive!”

But small liberal arts schools are often able to offer the most generous financial aid—in our case, the average financial aid package awarded to each student is $22,000.

And currently, 99% of our students are receiving financial aid.

Because the bottom line is that we want you to find success at DWU—and it’s our mission to do everything we can to make that happen.

So explore our scholarships, student loans, federal aid programs and work-study programs, and if you have any questions (no matter how small!), please contact us or call the DWU Financial Aid Office at (605) 995-2656.
