How to Apply


Admissions for all Duke undergraduates is handled by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. The admissions website offers class profile information for the previously admitted group of first-year students, tips on applications, and an engaging description of all that Duke has to offer undergraduates. You can explore all the majors available for Duke undergraduates on the Trinity College of Arts & Sciences degrees and credentials page.

Students who are interested in majoring and/or minoring in the arts are encouraged to submit supplemental artistic materials. This is a way for us to get to know you better. We have compiled some guidance for applicants, based on frequently asked questions.

Financial Aid

At Duke, we are a community of scholars dedicated to the idea that educational opportunities should not be limited by a student’s ability to pay. We practices 'need blind' admissions, and will help all qualified students attend Duke through financial aid packages. Over 50% of the Duke undergraduate student body receiving some form of financial aid. The financial aid process at Duke begins when you file an aid application. Duke reviews each application and determines the amount the student and family is expected to pay. Any remaining costs are covered by financial aid in the form of grants, work study, and limited student loans. For more information, see the Office of Undergraduate Financial Aid website.
