Undergraduate Financial Aid

Undergraduates are eligible for both merit and need-based aid delivered through the University of Denver’s Office of Financial Aid. We automatically consider all incoming undergraduate students for our departmental merit and need-based scholarships, if applicants complete DU’s Office of Financial Aid application and their FAFSA and CSS profile.

    Professional Master’s Degree Programs

    Our professional programs in cybersecurity, systems engineering, and data science offer reduced tuition on a per-credit-hour basis for all admitted students. Therefore, we do not provide additional departmental scholarships, graduate teaching, or graduate research assistantships in these programs.

    Our traditional programs in engineering and computer science offer graduate teaching and graduate research assistantships. Although our assistantships are competitive, you are encouraged to apply before our priority admission deadline.
