It is extremely important that parents and students understand the need to meet financial obligations associated with being a student at Drury University. When these obligations are not met in the manner expected, the university must borrow for its operations. The interest expense for that borrowing is ultimately reflected in increased tuition and fees. Quality education is costly to provide and Drury families must recognize the need for complete compliance with request for payment, financial aid application deadlines, etc. The business services and financial aid programs of Drury University are designed to assist students and parents in managing the expense of a quality university education.
