Once you have some money, you might find it necessary to pay that hefty tuition bill before you start class or to ensure your direct deposit is set up correctly for your loan refund to deposit before your rent is due. This requires knowledge of the University Bursar’s Office.


Tuition is usually paid through financial aid (in which case, you don’t have to worry about it at all) or by mail. Any questions or problems can be directed to the Bursar by email (bursar@duke.edu), phone call ((919) 648-3531), or visit (American Tobacco Campus Washington Building, Bay 10).

Refund Checks

You’ll receive your refund much faster if you sign up for direct deposit. The Financial Aid Office will help you do this.

Tuition Refund Insurance

Duke has arrangements with a private insurance company to offer a tuition refund plan to minimize your financial losses if you suffer a serious illness or accident and have to leave school before the semester is over.
