Paying Your Bill

After you are admitted to Dunwoody and have worked with the Financial Aid Office to determine your financial aid eligibility, you will work with the Student Accounts Office on understanding and paying your bill.

Contact the Student Accounts Office at studentaccounts@dunwoody.edu or 612.381.3414.

Billing Information

Student Accounts will email you at your Dunwoody email address when your billing statement is available to view online. Note: email is the official communication method for the College and thus no paper bills will be mailed.

To view your billing statement:

  1. Go to launchpad.dunwoody.edu and log in using your Dunwoody username and password.
  2. Click on the icon labeled “Statements & Payments.” This will take you to the Dunwoody CASHNet site.
  3. When CASHNet loads, your bill will show up in the “Your Bills” box. You can also enroll in a payment plan, view your current balance, or make an online payment.

Bill vs. Financial Aid Eligibility

After you access your bill, make sure you verify the difference between your bill and the amount of financial aid you have accepted on your eligibility offer for that term.

If the amount deducted from your balance does not reflect all anticipated Financial Aid, please contact the Financial Aid Office at financialaid@dunwoody.edu or 612.381.3405.

If there is a remaining balance, please contact the Student Accounts Office at studentaccounts@dunwoody.edu or 612.381.3414 to determine payment options. Or follow the instructions below to make a payment.

Know what you owe

Student Accounts is responsible for billing and collecting any direct costs associated with a student attending Dunwoody.

  • Direct costs – these are fees that will be charged directly to the student’s account (i.e. tuition, device fee, learning technology fee, activity fee, housing)
  • Indirect costs – these are fees that your student may have but will not be charged directly to the student’s account (i.e. books, supplies, calculators, bus passes, locker rental, etc)
    • Students who have accepted their financial aid do have the ability to charge books to their Student Account from our Bookstore but only until the end of the first week of classes.

Tuition

  • Dunwoody charges students for the credits enrolled in each semester. We DO NOT have a flat tuition rate which may cause balances to vary each semester. See the following example
    • NOTE: Totals listed are estimates based on average course costs. Actual cost per program may vary. A&S = Arts & Science Credits; Technical = Technical Credits.

Example of How Tuition Can Vary

Example 1 Example 2 Example 3
15 A&S = $7,125 6 A&S = $2,850 3 A&S = $1,425
0 Technical= $0 9 Technical = $10,422 12 Technical = $13,896
15 credits = $7,125 15 credits = $13,272 15 credits = $15,321

How do you know how many credits are expected each semester?

Students can access a sample academic plans for each program in the College Catalog & Student Handbook.

Fees

  • Device Fee: Programs are required to participate in our laptop rental program. Machines will vary depending on the program (excluded programs: Radiological Technology, Business Management and Leadership)
  • Learning Technology Fee: charged to ALL students each semester, even if they do not participate in our laptop program. This fee includes, but it not limited to, the equipment in the labs, the program related software on the Dunwoody issued device, other technological infrastructure on campus, printing, etc.
  • Student Life Fee: This fee covers student driven programs and events during the year; including support for each of our co-curricular and extracurricular student organizations. These social, cultural, and academic (career aligned) engagement opportunities are offered. The fee supports campus-wide programs, events (in-person and virtual), and resources. For more information, please contact Jonathon Moore, Leadership & Engagement Coordinator in Student Affairs, at jmoore@dunwoody.edu.

When to pay tuition and fees

Any outstanding balances, minus applied financial aid and federal loan disbursements delayed per regulation, are due on the first day of the semester:

  • Summer 2022: June 6, 2022
  • Fall 2022 Semester: August 29, 2022
  • J-Term 2023: January 3, 2023
  • Spring 2023 Semester: January 23, 2023
  • Summer 2023: June 5, 2023

Please note:

  1. Students enrolled in modules, that start on different days throughout the semester, are subjected to the same published due dates, regardless of when the modules begin. These modules will be charged at the beginning of each semester.
  2. Financial aid and charges are subject to change without prior notice. Students are responsible for viewing and paying their balance by the scheduled due date(s). Failure to review statements does not constitute a valid reason for not paying the balance by the due dates. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that all balances are taken care of before the end of the current term.
  3. Billing errors: Students understand that administrative, clerical, or technical billing errors do not absolve them of any financial responsibility to pay the correct amount of tuition, fees, and other associated financial obligations assessed as a result of registration at the College.
  4. Delinquent accounts:
    1. Failure to pay by the scheduled due date will lead to a financial hold, which will prevent the student from registering for future classes, requesting transcripts, or receiving their diploma until the account is satisfied in full.
    2. A $100 late fee will be assessed to students who continue to have an outstanding balance and are not current in the payment plan by Thursday of the 3rd week of classes.
    3. Outstanding balances that are not current in the payment plan by Thursday of the 7th week of classes will be assessed a default fee of 1% per month until the past due amount is paid in full or the student is no longer enrolled at the College.
