Nearly all of our students receive scholarships and grants that defray the cost of tuition. The tuition rates listed below are offset by scholarships, grants, student loans, or external aid.
We award $6.66 million in institutional scholarship and grant support to 99% of our students, and our students receive approximately $1.5 million in external support to offset the cost of their tuition and expenses.
Our Office of Financial Aid is available for one-on-one counseling to help you understand all the options available for funding your education. Contact us at (919) 660-3441 or firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment.

Refunds of tuition and fees are governed by the following policy:
- In the event of death, a full tuition and fees refund will be granted.
- In all other cases of withdrawal from school, tuition will be refunded according to the following schedule:
Withdrawal before the opening of classes—a full refund; withdrawal during the first or second week—80 percent; withdrawal during the third through fifth week—60 percent; withdrawal during the sixth week—20 percent; withdrawal after the sixth week—no refund. No refund will be granted for reduction in course load after the drop-add period.
Tuition or other charges paid from grants or loans will be restored to those funds on the same pro rata basis and will be refunded to the student or carried forward.
These regulations apply to all Divinity School students—degree candidates, special students, and auditors.
Federal regulations that went into effect July 1, 2011, require that Duke Divinity School’s Office of Financial Aid establish and implement a policy to measure whether students applying for and/or receiving financial aid are making satisfactory academic progress (SAP) towards a degree.
