Tuition & Fees

We can help make a DWU education possible for you.

No doubt about it: college is expensive. Fortunately, we can help. Many merit, talent and athletic scholarships are available, and numerous loan and grant programs can also help. DWU’s experienced team is dedicated to making the financial aid process work for each student.

"When I transferred to DWU from a state school, I found that my out-of-pocket costs were about the same, even though I expected DWU to cost a lot more. Wesleyan offers a lot of scholarships, making my actual cost very manageable.  All of my credits were accepted by DWU, so I didn’t lose anything when I transferred.  Plus, I feel like I’m getting a higher quality education at DWU.”

On average, Wesleyan students receive $15,415 in financial aid (that amount includes scholarships and grants, but not loans).  ALL students receive some form of financial aid.

Rewarding your strengths

Students who apply and are accepted for admission will be considered for academic scholarships based on their high school GPA and standardized testing scores (ACT/ SAT). Most scholarships are renewable for four years. Visit with an admissions counselor for more details.

Our annual scholarship events take place in February for current high school seniors.

Our Methodist heritage is important to us. The university offers eligible students scholarship awards based on their membership and involvement in their United Methodist Church.
