Your Bill & Receiving Your Aid
Fall Quarter 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 fall quarter:
- Initial bills will be sent on August 1st.
- The due date for that bill is August 22nd.
The initial bill lists tuition, fees, housing (if living on campus), any other charges you have for the fall quarter, and your authorized financial aid. In order for aid to be "authorized" and appear on your bill, it must be accepted and all requirements completed. Check your Financial Aid Checklist on your MyDU dashboard—any item with an open circle icon next to it requires additional action, and the type of aid 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
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 5th.
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 the 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. We recommend setting up direct deposit in order to expedite the receipt of your refund.
Find instructions for setting up direct deposit on the Bursar's Office website.
A note about Parent PLUS loans:
If your parent borrowed a Parent PLUS loan, any refund owed will be sent directly to the parent via mailed check. However, if the student's financial aid (without the PLUS loan) is greater than the bill, those excess funds will first be refunded directly to the student. The additional PLUS loan amount will be refunded to the parent unless otherwise requested.
If you wish to have the refund from a Parent PLUS loan sent to the student instead of the parent, please contact our office to make that request.
