Summer Tuition & Financial Aid

Summer @ DU

Tuition & Financial Aid

Financial Aid

If you're an undergraduate student enrolled in a DU degree program and taking summer classes, you'll receive a summer grant comparable to the amount of merit- and need-based funding you received each quarter during the 2014-15 academic year.  (Note that a summer grant can only help pay for classes taken during summer quarter—not for summer or fall interterms.)

To apply for summer grant funding, you will need to complete a Summer Aid Application through PioneerWeb. To submit this application:

  1. Log into PioneerWeb and go to the Student tab.
  2. Click on the "Apply for Summer Aid" link on the right.
  3. Choose the "2014-2015 Aid Year."
  4. Go to the Resources/Additional Information tab, answer the questions and click "Submit."

Financial Aid will use the information you submit through the application to create a summer aid package based on your 2014-15 financial aid award and summer enrollment status. You'll receive an email with information about your summer aid eligibility within 2-3 weeks of submitting your application.

If you have questions or wish to confirm the details of your financial aid for summer quarter, contact Financial Aid at or 303-871-4020.

Cost of Attendance

Your cost of attendance is made up of both direct costs and indirect costs:

  • Direct costs: Direct costs include fixed expenses such as tuition and student fees that are charged by DU and appear on your student bill.
  • Indirect costs: Books, personal expenses and transportation fees make up some of the indirect costs that won't show up in your quarterly DU bill, but are nonetheless part of your overall cost of attendance.

For more information on tuition and fees for the 2014-2015 academic year, see the Office of the Registrar's website.
