How to Make Your Tuition Payment

Pay 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 and Online Payment Center. 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.

Pay in the Office. Students can pay using cash, check, or money order in the Office of Student Accounts.

Semester Deferment Fee

The Office of Student Accounts reviews tuition accounts after the add/drop date each semester, adding a $90.00 deferment fee and SA hold to any account that is not paid in full or enrolled in a payment plan. Balances need to be resolved before Student Accounts can remove the SA hold. A SA hold placed will prohibit a student from registering for additional classes, reviewing their schedule, and requesting transcripts.

1% Finance Charge

Students enrolled in the Online Payment Center My Payment Plan (MPP) are expected to follow the payment schedule provided for them by the Online Payment Center. 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 $90.00 and will then be assessed the 1% finance charge. This fee will be assessed monthly until the balance is resolved.

How to Sign up for eRefund

Log into MyDU with your network user name and password, go to the Student Tab>My Student Account and Go to Online Payment Center. 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.  

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 on-line 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 the Online Payment Center with MasterCard, Discover, Visa or American Express. Currently Dominican University will hold diplomas and official transcripts until all balances are paid in full. 

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 Latricia Heard, director, at The appeal should state your outstanding balance and your plan for payment of the outstanding balance. 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.

Transcripts and Diplomas

Students with an outstanding balance and a Student Accounts (SA) hold will not have access to their transcripts or diploma until their balance is paid in full. Student Accounts can release a transcript directly to a potential employer for the purpose of securing employment.
