Welcome to Financial Aid 101!

University of Denver Financial Aid

Dear {first_name},

Here in Financial Aid, we know that financing your student's education can be intimidating and confusing. That's why we've developed "Financial Aid 101"—an email series designed to help you fully understand the financial aid process at DU.

Every Sunday morning, we'll deliver information and tips about a different topic to your inbox. Throughout the series, you'll learn about many aspects of financial aid, such as:

  • The types of aid available
  • Finding additional scholarships
  • When to expect an award letter
  • How eligibility is determined
  • Managing unmet costs

This Sunday, we'll kick off our series with an "Overview of the Process," which will give you a general outline of how it all works and resources to help you along the way.

We hope you'll find all the answers you need with this email series. But if you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to contact our office. We look forward to working with you!
