How Drury Tuition is Paid

Educational costs are met by Drury families in three ways:

  1. The full cost may be covered by personal or family resources. The total bill is paid in full two weeks before the start of the semester or a percentage of the full amount is paid and that balance is due in accordance with the deferred payment plan.
  2. The student may qualify for financial aid that is awarded directly through the university and is credited to the student’s bill by the Student Financial Services Office. These kinds of financial aid awards are made annually and the amount awarded is divided equally between charges for the fall and spring semesters. Listed below are examples of institutional scholarships and grants that are directly credited to the student’s bill:

    Continuing Professional Studies Academic Scholarship
    Honors Scholarship
    Dr. Archie Russell Scholarship
    Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship

  3. The student may receive financial aid from the federal or state government which is paid to Drury University and applied to the student’s account.

If the application of one or more awards from the federal or state government creates a credit balance on the student’s account, the student may be eligible for a refund.

Federal Pell Grant
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant
Bright Flight
Federal Perkins Loan
Federal Direct PLUS Loan
Access Missouri Financial Assistance Program
Federal Direct Student Loan

Drury University reserves the right to withdraw part or all of any Drury-funded scholarship if a student’s tuition is paid in full or in part by an outside/government agency.
