Your Bill & Receiving Your Aid

Fall Billing

The Bursar's Office is responsible for billing and will assess charges to your student account such as tuition, fees, housing and meal plans. Bills are sent on a monthly basis.

Fall Quarter/Semester:

  • Initial bills will be sent on August 2nd to students registered for classes.
  • The due date for that bill is August 22nd.

The initial bill lists tuition, fees and any other charges you have for the term, as well as your authorized financial aid. In order for aid to be "authorized," it must be accepted and all requirements completed. Be sure to check PioneerWeb—any item with a red flag in the "Financial Aid Requirements" box requires additional action, and the award associated with that requirement will not appear as a credit on your bill until that item is satisfied.

View statements, pay your bill, and set up authorized users with DUPay.

When to Expect Your Financial Aid

Fall Quarter/Semester

Graduate Students:

Federal regulations prohibit institutions from disbursing financial aid any earlier than 10 days prior to the start of classes. The first official day of the term for fall quarter is September 11th, which means your financial aid will disburse to your student account and pay toward your charges on September 1st (as long as all financial aid requirements have been satisfied and you're enrolled in classes). Refunds will be generated on September 3rd.

Your financial aid will not pay until after the due date of the bill. That's OK! Just be sure that the financial aid scheduled to disburse and any payment you make will cover your bill. Use our estimated billing worksheet to get a better idea of what you might owe.

Law Students:

The first day of classes for fall semester is August 16th, which means your financial aid will disburse to your student account and pay toward your charges on August 6th (as long as all financial aid requirements have been satisfied and you're enrolled in classes). Refunds will be generated on August 10th. Use our estimated billing worksheet to get a better idea of what you might owe.

Financial Aid Refunds

If your financial aid is more than the total of your charges, you may be eligible for a refund to pay other non-billable expenses. Refunds are typically generated by the Bursar's Office 2-3 business days after disbursement, and will appear in your bank account 2-3 business days after that (if you have direct deposit set up). 

To set up direct deposit for refunds:

  1. Log into PioneerWeb.
  2. Go to the Student tab.
  3. Click on the "Direct Deposit Info" link (located in the My Statement/Payment box).
