Additional Costs

While the courses are tuition-free, students must pay for their course materials (textbook) and their transportation to class. The student UPASS is not activate because courses are non-credit bearing. 

FYAS provides waivers for students experiencing financial need. If you anticipate financial difficulty with textbook or transportation costs, please email fyas@depaul.edu with the following information: name, DePaul ID#, course number, and your waiver request (textbook, transportation, or both). Once your request is received, FYAS will connect with the Office of Financial Aid to determine the financial need.
