Financial Aid and the Tuition Bill
The following information will explain how financial aid will appear on your tuition and fee bill.
Viewing Your Bill & Financial Aid
Tuition & Fee Bill
You will receive an email from the Bursar's Office when your official bill is ready. View the step-by-step instructions.
Your financial aid will be available in your student portal (MyCUBoulder or MyCUInfo) in one of two forms: anticipated aid and your financial aid award offer, depending on the time of year and where you are in the application process.
Anticipated aid is available for incoming students and is only an estimate based on the assumption that you will be enrolled as a full-time student. If you enroll less than full-time (12 credit hours for undergraduates, and 9 credit hours for graduates) your financial aid will likely be adjusted.
Financial Aid on the Bill
Students who have:
- completed their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the coming academic year,
- completed any additional requests for information from our office (received via email or posted in as a “To Do” item in the student portal), and have
- accepted their aid in the student portal and completed requested entrance counseling and/or Master Promissory Notes (MPNs),
Some financial aid may be displayed as anticipated aid on your billing statement, but if it is not there - don't worry. Simply review your financial aid award in your MyCUInfo portal for accuracy.
Receive your refund
Any aid that exceeds your bill will be available to you per the Bursar's Office refund policy and schedule. Check your MyCUInfo portal to make sure there are no items in your To Do List. Missing items can delay your financial aid. Financial Aid payments are made nightly.
Refunds resulting from a Parent PLUS Loan will be refunded to whoever was designated on the PLUS application submitted through studentloans.gov. Learn more.
Sign up for Direct Deposit
Direct deposit is required - it is also the easiest and fastest way to receive your financial aid refund. View the step-by-step instructions.
