Welcome to the University of Denver!
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 email an electronic bill (ecoBill) to the student's preferred email address approximately four weeks before the beginning of the term. Bills are due 10 days prior to the first day of classes. Because first time students do not register for their fall 2012 quarter courses until the week before classes start, they will be billed on September 7, 2012. The due date for this term is September 21, 2012. The chart below gives initial bill dates and due dates for each term, including summer.

- Initial Bills - 9/7/2012
- Due Date – 9/21/2012

Students may elect to have a duplicate bill emailed to a second email address of their choosing. Students can sign up for this option by selecting the ecoBill option on the Student tab in webCentral. Additional information regarding bills is located on www.du.edu/bursar/understanding.html
Estimated Budget Letters
To help families budget for tuition and fee charges, estimated budget letters are mailed to new undergraduate students in July. 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 www.du.edu/bursar/refund.html
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 enrollment fee is $50 per payment plan. For additional information and to sign up visit www.du.edu/bursar/payplans.html
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 at http://www.du.edu/duhealth/, or contact them at (303)871-4136. Waivers must be processed by the waiver deadline or else the student will be liable for the associated charge. The 2012 - 2013 academic year waiver deadlines for undergraduate students are September 28, 2012 for the fall quarter and April 12,2013 for the spring quarter. Visit www.du.edu/bursar/insurance.html for more information on Health Insurance waivers.
