NEED TO KNOW

STUDENT BUSINESS SERVICES

Registration Assurance
Payment in full or successful enrollment in the university’s deferred payment plan is REQUIRED to reserve your class selections. It is your responsibility to ensure financial aid or third-party payments that are expected to cover all charges and fees are properly noted and paid to your student account before payment due dates for the term. Failure to pay all outstanding tuition and fees by payment due dates will result in your classes being cancelled.
Aid Funds Paid to Student Accounts
Grants, scholarships, and loans will pay to student accounts beginning three days prior to the start of the semester. All financial aid requirements must be completed before funds will pay.
Direct Deposit/Refund Checks
If the amount of the financial aid paid to your student account exceeds your total charges, a refund will be issued through direct deposit or a refund check. Refund checks will be produced and mailed starting Jan. 9, 2020. Students are encouraged to sign up for direct deposit to expedite the delivery of their refund. Account balance and refund information can be viewed through myDSU Online Services. Questions about refunds should be referred to Student Business Services.
