Cost and Value

At Duke, we understand that the cost of college can be a significant concern for you and your family. That's why Duke is strongly committed to its financial aid program and the principle that a student's financial resources should not be a barrier to enrollment. By meeting 100% of the calculated need of our students through grants, work study, and limited student loans, our goal is to allow every admitted student to choose us.
