University billing schedule

The University will implement a new student billing schedule beginning with the Fall 2018 semester. Registered students with a balance due will be issued an e-bill in accordance with the following billing schedule.

The payment due dates are: Fall 2018  –  August 5  |  Spring 2019 – December 13  |  Summer 2019 – May 2

If a balance due remains after the due date, monthly e-bills will continue to be issued until the date of the final e-bill of the semester, when students will be billed for the remaining account balance.  

Students who do not fully pay the total account balance by the final due date will be assessed a late payment fee and have a financial hold placed on their record, which will restrict University services, such as future semester registration and issuance of transcripts. See FAQs.

How will my bill be delivered?

Currently registered students will receive both electronic bills (e-bills) and mailed paper bills. Bill notifications are sent to your official Delaware State University e-mail account, and bills are available to be viewed in Banner Self Service at my.desu.edu.

What are my options to avoid a hold on my account?

To avoid a hold, a student must either pay his or her bill in full online by the final billing due date for the semester or sign up with the Nelnet payment plan.

Book Vouchers

The Office of Student Accounts will preload book vouchers to your account in the amount of $500.00 if a credit balance is available on the account. If you do not wish to have the voucher on your account, you can visit the Office of Student Accounts to have the charge removed. Additional voucher fund requests can be submitted online or by visiting the office.

What will happen if I have an outstanding balance on my account?

A student account with an outstanding balance will be placed on hold, not allowing a student to register for the next enrollment term.

Will I be permitted to stay in my classes if I have already begun taking courses?

Yes, a hold on a student account will not remove a student from the current course schedule.

How will this affect my housing and meal plan?

A hold on a student account will not affect housing or a student meal plan for the current term. Once a hold is added to the account, it will affect housing for the next enrollment term.

Will I be able to register for additional classes?

No, a hold on a student account will prevent a student from making changes to the current course schedule as well as from registering for future classes until the balance has been satisfied.
