Your gifts help bridge the need gap for future business leaders.

For the last four years, higher education has faced enormous challenges. Although parents and prospective students still value the college experience, many wonder whether they are financially able to take on the debt loads often associated with an undergraduate degree.

“Right now, we’re meeting 87 percent of our students’ demonstrated need,” explained Tom Willoughby, vice-chancellor for enrollment. “The most competitive schools can meet 100 percent of their students’ demonstrated need because of the endowments they have. The ASCEND campaign will help us close that gap.”

  • 70 percent of DU’s revenue comes from student tuition.
  • 2012–2013 undergraduate tuition: $38,232 per year.
  • 2012–2013 graduate tuition: $1,062 per credit hour.
