Costs & Financial Aid

College is an investment in the rest of your life. At Drake, we not only provide the exceptional learning and rich experiences that will maximize the value of that investment—we also work hard to make a Drake education affordable for your family.

The cost of a Drake education is more accessible than you might think, especially considering that a majority of Drake students—98 percent—receive scholarships and financial aid. A total of more than $59 million a year is awarded in scholarships, grants, and work-study programs. This level of aid, combined with the value of a Drake education, makes us one of the best buys in college education according to Barron's 300, Peterson's Guide to Competitive Colleges, and Kiplinger.

Drake's Office of Student Financial Planning will work with you to look at financial aid options. We are committed to assisting you and your family as you explore the many opportunities available to meet the costs of a Drake education.
