Tuition & Fees

We can help make a DWU education possible for you

No doubt about it: college is expensive. Fortunately, we can help.  

EVERY student receives some form of financial aid. On average, Wesleyan students receive $24,000 in financial aid. That amount includes scholarships, grants and loans.

"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."

Rewarding Your Strengths. 

Students who apply and are accepted for admission will be automatically considered for academic scholarships based on their high school GPA. Transfer students are awarded an academic scholarship based on their college GPA. Visit with an admissions counselor for more details. 

High school seniors have an opportunity to compete for DWU’s top scholarships at our competitive scholarship days. We offer two scholarship days one in the fall and one in the spring.

Many scholarships are available, and numerous loan and grant programs can also supplement the cost. DWU’s experienced team is dedicated to making the financial aid process work for each student.
