Duke has extended its Early Decision deadline to November 16 in recognition of the impact of COVID-19 and various natural disasters.

Making Duke Possible

At Duke, we do more than offer financial aid. We offer support. Our goal is to ensure that students have the resources to attend and thrive—from application to graduation and all the experiences in between.

decision and my parents are

01 - Submit CSS Profile

Submit the CSS Profile online by the November 15 priority deadline to receive your aid estimate with your Admissions letter and information packet. Completed applications received after November 15 but before November 30 may receive an estimate in January.

02 - Submit FAFSA

Submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online by November 15. Please use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to import your information into the FAFSA.

Note: Undocumented students should skip this step.

03 - Submit Additional Forms (if Requested)

Submit any additional forms if requested.

Some applicants may be required to submit taxes and/or additional documentation to the College Board. If this is the case, you will receive email communication from the College Board providing you with instructions on how to submit any additional requirements through their online IDOC service.

If you do not receive a request to submit additional information, the Karsh Office of Undergraduate Financial Support has enough information to provide an estimated financial aid award at the time of admission.

04 - Review Your Estimate

Review your aid estimate. Your aid letter will include your official family contribution for 2020–21. We will update your aid in the spring once the official 2020–21 cost of attendance is announced.
