Financial Aid

Kent Denver provides more than $4.7 million every year to students and their families.

Kent Denver financial aid awards provide tuition support and may also cover all aspects of student life, from books and computer fees to bus service, class trips and many other incidental expenses.

These grants are not loans—they never have to be repaid.

Award amounts are based on your current financial situation and can change as your needs change. 

Kent Denver has provided more than $50 million to students in need since 2000.

Learn More about Our Financial Aid Program

 

Applying for tuition assistance does not affect admission decisions. In fact, all admission decisions are made on a need-blind basis. Once accepted, a student’s financial need is determined using FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment Management Company guidelines and Kent Denver’s own policies. Please refer to the Resources and Financial Aid Fast Facts below to learn more.

Currently, 24%—or nearly one in four—of our students receives financial assistance. Financial aid awards are granted on the basis of need; there are no academic or athletic scholarships.
