The Value of a Christ-Centered Education
It takes time to study and put in the hours needed to produce positive results. It takes involvement from friends, mentors, and family members to stretch and grow students. And it takes resources to ensure you have the ability to begin and complete a program.
Let us show you how your educational investment will pay off, both for your career and your calling.
How to Apply
It is a simple 2-step process to apply for aid:
- All students requesting a review for and awarding of any federal (and some state) aid will complete the Free Application of Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
- Complete the DBU Supplemental Application for Financial Aid.
For step-by-step instructions on completing the FAFSA, view this short video.

DBU offers a variety of scholarship options to students. Explore the opportunities and programs provided for you as you pursue your degree.
Loans, while not the first aid options of choice for most, can be a viable investment in your higher education.
Grants are gifted funds awarded to students who do not need to be paid back. This type of aid is sometimes, but not always, awarded to students based on their demonstrated financial need.
Become a Student Worker
DBU participates in the Federal and State College Work-Study programs. These programs are designed to provide part-time employment for students with financial need who wish to help pay a part of their educational expenses by working on campus or community service.
