Your Bill & Receiving Your Aid

Winter Quarter/Spring Semester 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.

For the winter quarter and spring semester:

  • Initial bills will be sent on December 1st to students registered for classes.
  • The due date for that bill is December 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

Graduate Students:

Federal regulations prohibit institutions from disbursing financial aid any earlier than 10 days prior to the start of the term. The first day of classes for most programs for winter quarter is January 11th, which means your financial aid will disburse to your student account and pay toward your charges on December 30th (as long as all financial aid requirements have been satisfied and you're enrolled in classes). Refunds will be generated on that day as well, and will be available in students' bank accounts 2-3 business days later.

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 spring semester is January 14th, which means your financial aid will disburse to your student account and pay toward your charges on January 4th (as long as all financial aid requirements have been satisfied and you're enrolled in classes). Refunds will be generated on January 6th, and will be available in students' bank accounts 2-3 business days later.

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.

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).
