Spring 2018 eBill

The spring 2018 eBill was published the week of December 11th. The eBill will reflect your charges and your pending financial aid. Tuition is due in full by the first day of classes each semester. If you are unable to pay in full you can enroll in one of the spring payment plans or you can contact the Office of Financial Aid to ask about additional loan options. We will republish eBills each week until the first day of spring classes to pickup any changes in your schedule.  

Spring 2018 Payment Plan

The spring 2018 payment plans are available. There is a $45 enrollment fee to use a payment plan and you must enroll on-line. To enroll log into MyDU, go to Students>My Student Account>CASHNet. On the CASHNet page you will see the links for the spring 2018 payment plan options on the right hand side of the page. 

We now offer two payment plan options: a monthly plan and a bi-weekly plan. With the monthly plan your payments will be due on the 5th of each month, January through May. If you use the bi-weekly plan your payments will be due twice monthly, also extending from January through May. Payments will due on the 5th and the 21st of each month.  

If you were enrolled in a previous payment plan you do need to re-enroll if you want to use a payment plan for spring. In other words, you do need to enroll in the payment plan every semester you want to use it.  

Make your Tuition Payment Online

Current students can log into MyDU using a network username and password to make a tuition payment. Once logged in, go to Students>My Student Account>CASHNet. Make a payment using MasterCard, Discover, Visa or American Express. There is a 2.75% convenience fee to use a credit card. A payment can also be made by eCheck, for which there is no fee.

Refund Process

Your refund from Title IV funds (Stafford loans, UG Plus loans, Pell and SEOG Grants and Perkins Loans) will be processed within 14 days of receipt and mailed to you, unless you have signed up for eRefund. eRefunds are processed twice weekly, on Tuesday and Thursday. We strongly encourage you to sign up for eRefund because it will expedite your refund. Checks will be processed twice a week, on Tuesday and Thursday and are typically mailed the next day. We will not process a check refund for any balance less than $200.

Refunds will be processed to the student unless a credit is the result of an UG Plus loan. In this case the refund will be processed and mailed to the parent who took out the loan. If the parent would like the refund processed by eRefund they will need to contact the Student Accounts Office at

How to Sign up for eRefund

Log into MyDU with your network user name and password, go to the Student Tab>My Student Account> CASHNet.  There you will find a link on the left side labeled eRefund Sign up and Processing. You will be asked to enter your banking information, which includes the routing number from your bank and your checking or savings account number.  Once you are enrolled we can process your eRefund when it becomes available.   

1% Finance Charge

Students enrolled in CASHNet's My Payment Plan (MPP) are expected to follow the payment schedule provided for them by CASHNet. If a payment is not made on time, a 1% finance charge will be applied to the tuition account. This fee will be assessed once a month, as long as there is an outstanding monthly balance. Students who have not enrolled in MPP and have not paid their tuition in full by the first day of class will first receive the deferment fee of $90 and will then be assessed the 1% finance charge.This fee will be assessed monthly until the balance is resolved. 

Technology Fee

With the support of the technology fee Dominican has plotted out a two-year renewal and enhancement plan. Specifics include some new computers, upgrades to all Parmer labs and classrooms, four new enhanced classrooms at the Priory Campus, Wi-Fi in all residence halls, our first DU app and much more. Dominican's goal is for all undergraduate students to take at least two online classes during their time on campus. Another goal is to increase the number of graduate students enrolled in online programs. 

Graduation Policy

Dominican University encourages students to participate in their graduation ceremony. However, to maintain the quality of education it provides, the university requires that students pay in full all charges relating to tuition, fees, room and board prior to the graduation date. Note that Student Accounts stops taking personal checks two weeks prior to the date of graduation. During this time you are welcome to pay in the office by cashier's check, money order, or cash. You may also pay online through CASHNet with MasterCard, Discover, Visa or American Express. 

Currently Dominican University will hold diplomas and official transcripts until all balances are paid in full. Students with balances owed to the University will be restricted from participating in the graduation ceremony. This year the restriction will not apply to students with the following payment arrangements, since their final payment will be received after the graduation date. These students will be allowed to participate in the graduation ceremony as long as the scheduled final payment will completely cover the unpaid balance:

  • Teach for AmeriCorps Students

Under special circumstances, Dominican University may allow a student to participate in the graduation ceremony with an open balance. All special circumstances will be considered by appeal. For consideration, a student will need to submit an appeal to Terri Shimkus, Bursar. If the appeal is approved, the student will be allowed to participate in the graduation ceremony. No student participating in the graduation ceremony will be allowed to pick up their diploma and/or transcripts until the balance is paid in full.
