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 every month.

Winter Quarter/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. For aid to be "authorized," it must be accepted and all requirements completed. Check the Financial Aid Checklist on your MyDU dashboard—any item with the open circle icon next to it requires additional action, and the award associated with that requirement will not appear as a credit on your bill until that item is satisfied.

Additional information about billing is available on the Bursar's Office website.

When to Expect Your Financial Aid

Winter Quarter/Spring 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 the winter quarter is January 3rd. This means your financial aid will disburse to your student account and pay toward your charges on December 24th, as long as all financial aid requirements have been satisfied and you're enrolled in classes. Refunds will be generated on December 27th.

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 better understand what you might owe.

Law Students:

The first day of classes for the spring semester is January 9th, 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 January 2nd. Use our estimated billing worksheet to better understand 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 set up direct deposit

Learn more about direct deposit and find set-up steps on the Bursar's website.
