Summer Financial Aid Update
In this update:
Are you planning to take classes during the summer semester? If you need student loans to help pay for your classes—and haven't already completed the application process—please submit the Summer Aid Application through PioneerWeb. Once submitted, you'll receive an email with information about your summer aid options after an advisor has reviewed your application.
Your DU tuition bill is due on May 20th. On that date, your financial aid for summer semester will disburse to your student account and will pay toward your charges—as long as all financial aid requirements are satisfied.
In order to receive your financial aid, you must:
Expecting a refund? If your financial aid is more than the total of your charges, a refund will be generated by the Bursar's Office on Tuesday, May 23rd. If you have direct deposit, you can expect to see that refund in your bank account on May 24th.
The last day to add or drop classes at 100% for summer semester is Tuesday, June 6th. On that date, we will verify your enrollment and make any necessary changes to your cost of attendance. If you are enrolled in fewer credits than what you indicated on your Summer Aid Application, your financial aid refund may be too large and we may need to return a portion of your loan funds back to the U.S. Department of Education (which will create a balance due with DU). If you are enrolled in more credits, you will receive a smaller refund to use for living expenses (if you planned to borrow for those).
If your actual enrollment is different than what you indicated on your summer aid application, please contact our office as soon as possible so we can make the necessary adjustments to your cost of attendance and financial aid.
Wondering when you'll receive your financial aid award letter for the 2017-18 school year? If you've applied for aid and completed all outstanding requirements, you should receive your award letter via email within the next week. These emails will be sent to your preferred address; verify that you have the correct email address on file by going to the Law Student tab of PioneerWeb and clicking on "Set Your Preferred Email Address."
