A 10% deposit is due upon acceptance. Remaining tuition may be paid in one, three or eight installments. Financial assistance is need-based, and available on a limited basis.

Extended care - Kids Club - is available for preschoolers through eighth graders. Fees are associated with this service.

Financial Aid

Ricks Center for Gifted Children at the University of Denver is committed to offering families an opportunity to apply for financial assistance. All aid is granted on the basis of financial need. Offering financial assistance enables Ricks Center to serve a diverse socio-economic student body and assures that the needs of gifted children are met regardless of financial need.

Admissions decisions are first made without regard to financial status. Requests for aid are considered after an invitation to enroll has been extended. Financial assistance is available in several forms, including reduced tuition and alternative payment schedules designed to distribute tuition installments throughout the year.

Financial Aid applications for returning Ricks families for the 2015-2016 school year are due December 8, 2014. Financial Aid applications for new families for the 2015-2016 school year are due February 12, 2015
