MAKING DUKE A REALITY
We know that guiding students through the college selection process while also catering to individual academic interests can be a juggling act. We are always willing to assist high school counselors with the college admissions process and encourage you to take advantage of the information provided below.
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
Every year, thousands of the world’s best students apply to Duke. They represent a wide spectrum of diversity and experiences, but they are united by their interest in Duke’s academic rigor, stimulating campus environment, and reputation for achievement. Most admitted students have demonstrated impact, intellect, imagination, and interest in the classroom, in the community, or on the athletic field. It could be doing one thing brilliantly, or several things exceedingly well.
HOW TO APPLY
The outstanding students who apply for admission to Duke each year continually astound us. We are always excited to welcome a new class into our collaborative community of intellectual explorers.
MAKING DUKE POSSIBLE
At Duke, we do more than offer financial aid. We offer support. Our goal is to ensure that students have the resources to attend and thrive—from application to graduation and all the experiences in between. Applying for financial aid can be daunting—that’s why we’re here to break things down, help you get started, and make Duke a reality.
