“Can I afford D&E?”

%

Receive Aid

Most of our students need some financial help… and they get it.

98% of D&E students receive financial aid, and a large portion of those tuition dollars come from our nine robust scholarship programs.

As a Division II school, nearly half our students take advantage of our athletic scholarship. Other programs support international students, creative arts studies, members of the Presbyterian Church (PCUSA), and many more.

Define &

Elevate

When I knew I would be so far away from Texas for college, my Father said I would need a place that felt like family. I found it here at D&E. Welcome to my home!

Hussain

Hamide, Class of 2023, Management & Accounting

Through athletics, you’ll Defend the Hills, working as hard in competition as you do in the classroom, and Encourage teammates and classmates with your strength of character.

Desire &
Engage

The Highlands Scholarship was definitely part of my decision to attend D&E. I was on the borderline of not being able to afford tuition, but Highlands, along with other scholarships, made it affordable for me.

Defend &
Encourage

Not only did the Honors Program help me realize how much I love my choice in vocation, it also allowed me to meet new, amazing people and learn new things.

Mason Fox

And in this arts & culture community, you’ll Design cultural experiences and Enlighten others through creative self-expression.

Design &
Enlighten

I definitely think there are more opportunities for students at a smaller college and you get more one-on-one interaction with professors.

At D&E, you’ll Define yourself and become elevated to leadership.

We’ve been leading the way for over a century.

Both D&E College and the City of Elkins were developed at the turn of the 20th century by two U.S. Senators, Henry Gassaway Davis and his son-in-law, Stephen Benton Elkins. They’re the reason we call ourselves Senators, and why we call this beautiful place home.

Their entrepreneurial spirit set this college town in motion. Today, Elkins is a small but bustling arts community that draws thousands each fall for the annual Mountain State Forest Festival while Davis & Elkins College draws students from all over the world.

Lead the Way, Future Senator
