Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.94 Average Rating
DePauw is an expensive school but the financial aid is wonderful and when you realize the education you are getting, you realize you are getting what you paid for. DePauw's motto is Uncommon Success and that is exactly what you get. The name goes before you in the world.
Kandyce from Indianapolis, IN
DePauw is not the most affordable school for everyone. However, what the money goes to is so beneficial and inevitably comes back to the student in some way, shape, or form. They really try to work with students individually to make it financially more affordable. They have so many opportunities for scholarship, including for winter term trips. No matter how much you pay to go here you receive a top notch education from an increasingly popular liberal arts university that would look good on any job application. On top of it all there are changes coming to the campus in the next few years that are only going to make the expense more worth it.
Erin from Greenwood, IN
DePauw's tuition is as high as any other small private university, but it does have a large endowment, and the majority of students are supported by some kind of financial aid, whether it be merit or need based.
Kari from Willow Springs, IL
It's a small community, so you make a ton of friends for life, and the professors that you have have the chance to get to know you personally.
David from Brooklyn, NY
I wouldn't rather be at any other college. Great professor, campus, and community.
FRANK from Evansville, IN
The education, food, dorming, experiences and opportunities are worth it. I have met people in high places in media companies and other fields who may have not even studied their career field in college. That just shows you that a DePauw education is diverse and applicable. Many of our graduates have high level job entry or excel in their field rather quickly.
Felicia from Brooklyn, NY
The college gives away free things throughout the year which is nice, and the money is definitely worth it for the education, nice campus, and future endeavors provided.
Kaitlyn from New Palestine, IN
Amazing school!
