Where Phenomenal Happens.

DU has approximately 13,900 total students (5,700 undergraduate and 8,200 graduate students). Nearly 800 international students from over 80 countries call DU home. Total annual cost for undergraduate students is approximately $77,880 including tuition, student fees, living expenses, books and supplies, and health insurance. The university does not offer any need-based aid to international students but is proud to offer generous merit scholarships to students with strong academic profiles, which can cover up to 50% of a student’s cost of attendance. The academic calendar operates on a quarter system, which provides students with a longer winter break and ample time to complete a major and two minors or double major, etc.. 98.7% of classes are taught by faculty members and 94% of classes have fewer than 50 students, with an average class size of 24. Additionally, life on-campus is vibrant since 94% of first year students (48% of all undergraduate students) live on-campus and participate in more than 290 student-run organizations. DU also has 18 Division 1 Sports, and many other club and intramural options. 




Hi! I’m Megan Buckley.

I was born in Toronto, Canada, I spent my childhood in both Santa Fe, New Mexico and Las Vegas, Nevada. I attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas for my undergraduate and graduate degrees. Studying abroad during college inspired me to continue making the world a smaller place by creating relationships that spanned the globe. This motivated me to move to Costa Rica and later Vietnam to teach English. Upon returning to the US, I continued my teaching career as Academic Director of a small language school for 6 years. I was drawn to DU because of the location and its commitment to a high-quality educational experience. I enjoy practicing yoga, modern dance, hiking, and art in all its forms. The advice I would give international students is to ask questions and get involved!
