Denver College of Nursing is approved by the Federal Department of Education to participate in Title IV funding programs.  For those who qualify, we offer our students several options to cover the cost of their education.  We highly encourage students and their families to explore all of their options and not to rely solely on financial aid to fund their education.  

  • Denver College of Nursing offers payment plans with no interest while attending school
  • Eligibility for Federal Financial Aid programs is determined by information submitted in the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)
  • We are approved to train Veterans
  • We offer credit-based alternative funding for those who qualify

Our individualized attention to each student’s needs makes applying for financial aid a simple and personalized process for Denver College of Nursing students.

Title IV Federal Financial Aid programs

Students attending the Denver College of Nursing may be eligible to receive loans or grants through one or more financial aid programs.

  • Federal Subsidized Stafford Student Loan
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant
  • Federal Work Study Program
  • Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Student Loan
  • Federal PLUS Loan
  • Federal Pell Grant

Note: All students regardless of how much Federal Financial Aid they may qualify for will have to pay a portion of their tuition out of pocket using either in house financing or credit based alternate loan options.
