Only submit a tuition credit application if your 4-year-old has been accepted to a Denver Preschool Program (DPP) participating preschool program outside of Denver Public Schools (DPS). Denver families who enroll their 4-year-old in a DPS preschool program must sign up for DPP tuition support through the SchoolChoice Application. Undecided? Find a preschool
We know the cost of a high-quality preschool can be a challenge for families of all income levels. That is why we provide monthly tuition credits to parents/guardians of 4-year-olds. Download a DPP Tuition Credit Application in English or Spanish.

See the application for a complete list of acceptable documents. Full online applications are unavailable at this time.
Families who choose not to provide income information can still receive tuition support, but at a reduced rate.
3. Mail, fax or email your completed application and any supporting documents to:

4. Receive an acceptance letter. Approximately eight (8) business days after you submit a complete application, we will send you and your chosen preschool an acceptance letter with the amount of tuition support your family will receive. Tuition credits are paid directly to the preschool, which will deduct it from your monthly bill.
