*An important note Federal Pell Grant recipients: DePaul uses a financial aid census date (referred to as the Pell census date) for purposes of determining your term enrollment status for Federal Pell disbursement each term. The Pell census date is the day after the last day to drop classes with no penalty, as published on the academic calendar. Your enrollment status for Pell disbursement will be based on your official enrollment on this date. If you have questions, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at DePaul Central for assistance.
**Special Note about Federal Work-Study: Federal Work-Study funds are not disbursed to your university account. You receive Federal Work-Study funds through either direct deposit or paycheck based on hours worked in a qualified on-campus job.
Disbursed aid funds are first applied to outstanding tuition costs, then to any housing costs or university fees. Financial aid disbursements in excess of your DePaul charges will be refunded to you, in accordance with the disbursement rules of each financial aid program. For more information about refunds, visit the
Refunds FAQ section of the Student Accounts website.
