In evaluating applicants for admission, the Nicholas School maintains a strict policy of selecting candidates without regard to their ability to pay tuition. If the applicant is offered admission, the school will notify the admitted student if they are eligible to receive financial aid and in what form. The Nicholas School works with three primary types of financial aid: situation-specific scholarships and grants from the school or recognized entities, need-based aid from the school, and federal loans. Some students may seek outside scholarships and grants or private loans. Our Financial Aid Office will be happy to help you review your options and identify which options are right for you.
Once Notified of Your Financial Aid Package
You are encouraged to take some time to log in to DukeHub, which is the student access to the Duke system, and under Financial Aid check to see that the financial aid you were offered from the Nicholas School has been posted. Please be aware that all awards, including scholarships and loans, may be posted to your account but will not be applied towards your tuition and fees until 10 days prior to the beginning of the semester.
Even though your bill is due August 1st, the Bursar will be able to see if you have accepted your financial aid and they will refrain from applying a late payment penalty provided the aid you have accepted covers your tuition and fees for the semester. You must actively accept loans in order for them to disburse.
