Wondering when you'll receive your 2015-2016 award letter?

We began sending award letters in mid-March to all new students who submitted a financial aid application. To receive an award letter, you must be admitted to the University of Denver and have completed all outstanding financial aid requirements, which you can verify on the Student tab of PioneerWeb. Beginning the week of April 27th, all financial aid award letters will be sent via email to new students—no packets will be mailed.

We will begin sending 2015-16 award letters to continuing students in mid-to-late May.
