Welcome to the online version of the Summer 2014 Supplemental Application for Financial Aid.

Please complete this application online by following the on-screen prompts. Begin by clicking one of the two buttons to the left, to either 1) begin or continue an existing application, or 2) sign up as a first time user.

This application is to be completed by students applying for federal, state, or institutional assistance programs for the Summer terms of 2014. The priority date for receiving this application in order to be considered for MAXIMUM Summer Financial Aid 2014 is April 15, 2014. Students desiring federal aid must also have completed the 2013-14 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine assistance. If you have not yet filed a 2013-2014 FAFSA click here to do so: www.fafsa.gov. Information provided with this application supplements the data received in your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and is used to determine eligibility for scholarships, grants, employment, and/or loan programs. Students may be eligible for some financial aid for less than ½ time enrollment; however, loans will require at least half time enrollment. Federal Assistance is only available to degree or certificate seeking students. Once a student file is reviewed for Summer 2014 aid, and if awards are posted to the student file then an award letter will be sent to the student indicating the student’s eligibility for Summer aid. Additional instructions, if needed, will also be provided. Should you have any questions about this application, please contact the Office of Financial Aid 214-333-5363 or finaid@dbu.edu.

A refund will be issued only if the student's balance is paid in full. Student refunds are either sent electronically, through direct deposit to your bank account, or as a paper check in the mail. For paper checks, please be sure to verify your current address information with the Registrar's office.

Withdrawal/Attendance:

Students who withdraw from classes and students who do not attend all classes in which they enroll may be required to return a percentage of, or all, aid awarded.
