News and Announcements

Office Closed December 25th - January 1st

As a reminder, the University of Denver is closed during the holiday break. Our office will be closed beginning at 3pm on Wednesday, December 24th and will reopen at 8am on Friday, January 2nd.


Wondering when you'll receive your financial aid for winter quarter/spring semester?

Due to federal regulations, we cannot disburse financial aid funds any earlier than 10 days before the start of the term. This means disbursement will occur on December 26th for winter quarter, and on January 2nd for law students.

Wondering when you'll get your refund? The Bursar's Office generally mails or direct deposits refunds 2 business days after disbursement. So, for most students, refunds will be generated on December 30th, (January 6th for law students). Questions about your refund? Contact the Bursar's Office.

Remember: In order to get your aid, you must be enrolled in classes, and you must have no outstanding financial aid requirements (which you can verify on the Student tab of PioneerWeb).
