How Drury Tuition is Paid

Educational costs are met by Drury students in three ways:

  1. The full cost may be covered by personal resources. The total bill is paid in full two weeks before the beginning of each 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.

  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 financial aid for graduate students at Drury University includes the Federal Direct Student Loan, unsubsidized, and Graduate PLUS Loan.
