Financial Aid Dates


  1. Payment Policy @ COD - All students are required to pay their tuition and fees at the time of registration. Students may pay by cash, check or credit card. Students unable to pay in full must enroll in our convenient "Payment Plans". Students receiving financial aid (i.e., grants and loans) must enroll in the College's Deferred Payment Plan. Direct links to these payment options are found in myACCESS. Eligibility for the Deferred Payment Plan is dependent upon your financial aid status at the time you register.  
  2. Financial Aid refund checks - College of DuPage will no longer mail financial aid refund checks to students.  Students can sign up to receive their refunds electronically by signing up for eRefunds through their myACCESS.  Otherwise, students can pick up their refund checks at the Cashiers Office.
