The Bursar's Office would like to highlight a few key policies, procedures and options for you related to your tuition bill. First of all, what is the Bursar's Office? We are the office responsible for generating bills related to student tuition and fee charges as well as financial aid credits. Tuition and fee charges can include tuition, student activity fees, technology fees, room and board fees, on campus parking permit fees, special class assessments, etc. Student fees do not include books, off campus room and board charges, etc.
Tuition and fees are charged each term in which a student registers, and are based on the number of hours in which a student registers. Traditional Undergraduate students registering for classes within their program are billed tuition and technical fees at a flat rate of 12 hours when registering for 12 to 18 credit hours within a term. Students registering for more than 18 hous will be billed for each additional hour taken.
The Bursar's Office will send email notification when electronic bills (ecoBill) are ready for viewing to the student's DU email address approximately four weeks before the beginning of the term. Authorized Users will also be notified. Students may set up Authorized Users in DUPay. For more information visit our website, Make a Payment.
Bills are due 10 days prior to the first day of classes. Because first time students do not register for their fall 2016 quarter courses until the week before classes start, they will be billed on September 9, 2016. The due date for this term is September 23, 2016. The chart below gives initial bill dates and due dates for each term, including summer.

FERPA (Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974) RELEASE
A FERPA release must be completed giving consent to the University to release all or part of the student's records to third parties, such as parents or employers. This consent is needed for all requested information written or verbal. The FERPA release is located online at PioneerWeb, Student Tab, Records / Requests, Release of Student Records
Estimated Budget Letters
To help families budget for tuition and fee charges, estimated budget letters are mailed to new undergraduate students in August. This letter provides estimated tuition, fees, housing and meal expenses (based on full time registration), and financial aid awarded as of the date of the letter. This letter can be used to plan expenses for your first year at DU.
Financial Aid Refunds
All financial aid is disbursed to your tuition account. If the total financial aid proceeds are greater that the total account due, the Bursar's Office will issue a refund of the excess amount to the student. Refunds can be transmitted directly to the bank account established by the student by setting up a direct deposit transaction. Refunds not set up for direct deposit will be mailed to the Mailing address established by the student. For dates of Financial Aid refund availability refer to our website.
DU Tuition Payment Plans
The University of Denver does offer Tuition Payment Plans to help spread out the cost of attendance. Yearly plans and one term plans are available for students. The application fee is $20 per payment plan. For additional information visit our website.
Health Insurance Waiver
The Student Health Insurance Premium is assessed to students registered in six of more credit hours each fall and spring terms. Students may waive participation in the program and the insurance premium provided they are covered under another adequate health insurance policy. For more information about the student health program, visit the Health and Counseling website, or contact them at (303)871-2205. Waivers must be processed by the waiver deadline or else the student will be liable for the associated charge. The 2016 - 2017 academic year waiver deadlines for undergraduate students are September 30, 2016 for the fall quarter and April 14, 2016 for the spring quarter. Visit Bursar's Office website for more information on Health Insurance waivers.
