How does my financial aid get applied to my bill?

Financial aid awarded internally by DMU (scholarships, student assistantships, etc.) will be applied to your account and noted as credits on the statement you will receive.

Loan disbursements are credited to a student’s account within 24 hours of DMU receiving the funds from G5 (the Department of Education). This process is coordinated with the DMU Business Office and all attempts are made to distribute student refund checks as soon as possible.

What if I drop a class? Will I receive a refund?

Students dropping a course after classes have begun may be subject to partial tuition fees based on the point at which the class was dropped. For details about the drop/withdraw refund policies and deadlines, consult the student handbook for your respective program. This may be found on the enrollment services page by clicking “Academic Catalog/Policies”.

Students will generally not receive a removal of tuition, course fees, and other associated fees until after the end of the published Add/Drop period noted in the catalog.

Please see Student Accounts Information Page for information about refund check disbursements.

Donations to benefit a Student.

Donations cannot be earmarked for a particular student.  DMU cannot accept such donations. And such donations are not tax deductible to the donor.

A donor could earmark a scholarship for a student from a particular place (state for example), background (military, minority, low income, etc), or who would like to work in a particular place (an underserved area).  If such a scholarship was set in place, a student would need to apply for it and be awarded the scholarship, so at that point financial aid would need to be involved..  The donor cannot influence to whom the scholarship goes, it would need to be made by our financial aid office.
