FAFSA Simplification

Due to the passing of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Simplification Act on December 27, 2020, as a part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, the FAFSA is changing for the 2024–2025 aid year. 

Visit our FAFSA Simplification page for more information. 

The FAFSA is your application for federal grants and loans, the state of Illinois MAP grant as well as institutional need-based resources. Dominican University's code is 001750.

Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid

The 2024-2025 Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid is open to applicants. This application is for undocumented Illinois residents who are ineligible to file the FAFSA.

View your Student Account Statement Online

To review your eBill, log into myDU, go to your student account and then Online Payment Center. On the Online Payment Center page, select the most current date in the "Your Bills" portal. Tuition is due in full by the first day of class. If you are unable to pay in full, you can sign up for the university payment plan. There is a $45 fee to enroll in the payment plan each semester. Missed payments will result in a 1% monthly finance charge. Please contact Stars Connect, located in Lewis 115, if you have any questions.

Net Price Calculator

We back up our commitment to personal financial responsibility with our Net Price Calculator, which lets you estimate what you will pay in full-time tuition after factoring in projected financial aid (entering freshmen only).
