DANTES Benefits

Students are reimbursed after the semester is over and a grade is posted. DANTES recipients will be held responsible for their balance and due dates. Late fees and/or blocked registration may occur if students are not current with their payments.

Browse to the AU Bursar's Office to find out the billing cycle. Students who have an unpaid balance for the current semester will have their registration blocked for the subsequent semester(s) until the outstanding balance is paid.
