Financial Aid

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

FYAS provides waivers for students experiencing financial need. If you anticipate a need for financial assistance with textbook or transportation costs, please notify us by email at fyas@depaul.edu and we will respond with next steps for submitting a financial waiver.

*Please note that Winter Intersession 2021 courses will be online, so the transportation waiver will not be available to students during Winter Intersession.
