Publishing Institute


Financial Aid

Because students in the Denver Publishing Institute program are non-degree seeking, federally-funded financial aid—including loans—is not available. If you need financing for the program, you may consider applying for a private education loan through a bank or credit union.

Not all lenders offer education loans to students in non-degree seeking programs. When shopping for a loan, be sure to ask the lender if their product is available to non-degree seeking students before submitting an application for the loan.

Although the amount you'll be billed for this program is $4,830, you can apply for a private loan for up to $7,162. This number includes the cost of tuition and fees, as well as indirect costs that are not charged by DU. Any amount you borrow above $4,830 will be sent directly to you in the form of a refund for you to use as you wish. Additional information about what cost of attendance means is on the financial aid website.
