Costs, Scholarships & Aid

The cost of college is a concern for nearly every student and family.  You need to have a plan for meeting your tuition responsibilities. Few people have the resources to simply write a check for the full cost of tuition each semester.

College of DuPage provides a comprehensive range of services that help to bridge the gap between the financial resources of students and their families and the cost of education, helping to eliminate the economic barrier in obtaining a college education.

Students attending College of DuPage are strongly encouraged to apply for financial assistance in the form of federal grants, state grants, Federal Work Study, scholarships and Federal Direct Loans.

Payment Policy

College of DuPage requires students to pay their account balance in full at time of registration. If the account balance is not paid in full at time of registration, or the student has not enrolled in a payment plan, the student may be dropped from his/her classes for the amount owed.
