  1. 1. Select Authorized User tab in the payment portal
  2. 2. Add Authorized User button
  3. 3. Enter email address of the authorized user and select options to give authorized user
  4. 4. Check box in Agreement to Add Authorized User
An email will be sent to the authorized user with instructions to complete setup.

The University of Denver accepts cash, checks, and/or money orders as a form of payment for all charges that appear on student accounts. Checks must be drawn on a U.S. bank, or a bank with a U.S. subsidiary, and must be payable in U.S. currency. Make checks payable to the University of Denver and please include the student ID number on the check. Checks can be mailed to University College, 2211 South Josephine Street, Denver, CO 80208-8301 Attn: Tina or to the Cashier’s office, University of Denver, 2197 South University Blvd, Denver, CO 80208

Credit Cards

The University of Denver does not accept credit/debit card payments for tuition and loan payments.

Employer-Reimbursement Tuition Deferral

Students who are reimbursed by their employers are eligible to defer the reimbursed portion of their tuition each quarter.

Students must provide the "Employer Reimbursement Payment Agreement" or a letter from their employer and the top portion of the "Employer Reimbursement Payment Agreement" stating the terms of reimbursement. The University of Denver requires that this documentation is updated each fall. A $45 non-refundable processing fee is charged each quarter.

Students are required to pay any tuition and fees which are not reimbursed by the employer. Deferred tuition is due 60 days after the end of each quarter to allow time for students to obtain reimbursement from their employers.

University College can provide a letter that states the course title, fees and tuition, and grade received in the classes to facilitate employer reimbursement. The letter must be requested at the time of registration.

Deferred tuition must be paid in full by the due date, regardless of the assigned grade (including incompletes).

Direct Billing of Employer

The University of Denver will bill employers who pay University College directly for employee tuition and fees. Students must provide a letter or voucher each quarter from their company at the time of registration which authorizes billing and includes the name and address of the person to whom the bill is to be sent. Students must also complete the Third Party Payment Agreement which can be found on the Bursar’s website under Forms.

The student is responsible for payment of all charges not covered by the third party by the billing due date. If for any reason the third party does not pay the invoiced charges, the student is responsible for paying the outstanding balance. Tuition and fees will remain on student accounts until paid by the employer.

Monthly Payment Plan

Students may enroll in a flexible tuition payment plan through the University of Denver Bursar's Office. The yearly or term plans allow participants to spread the tuition and fee expense over two payments. There is a nonrefundable enrollment fee of $50 per payment plan. To enroll in a payment plan, please fill out the Tuition Payment Plan worksheet on the Bursar's website and submit the worksheet with the enrollment fee.

Financial Aid

Financial assistance in the form of Stafford Loans is available to University College students. See financial aid for detail.

DU Tuition Waiver

The tuition waiver program is designed to enable benefited employees, their spouses, and/or their dependent children, to enroll in "for-credit" courses at the University of Denver with reduced or no tuition charges. Once students have registered for classes, they should click on the Student tab in PioneerWeb. Under MyWeb, Banner Self-Service, under Tuition Waiver Menu, students must select "Tuition Waiver Course Selection" and indicate the academic period for which they would like to assign their tuition waiver. Once the deadline to assign a tuition waiver to a course for the current academic period has passed, students will only have access to future academic periods through this link. Courses taken with the tuition waiver must be taken for credit. The University of Denver technology fee of $4 per credit hour is not covered by the tuition waiver and must be paid at the time of registration. For more information, call 303-871-7420 or review the Human Resources website.

Deferred Payment of Existing Student

Students wishing to determine eligibility for deferment of existing student loans should contact the DU Registrar at 303-871-4033.
