  • When will I find out whether my enrollment request has been accepted?

SBS will begin reviewing DPP enrollment requests once student fees and housing charges are posted to student accounts.  You will receive an email notifying you that your enrollment has been approved or denied when our review is complete.

There is no need to cancel your DPP enrollment.   If your student account is paid in full by the fee payment deadline, whether paid by financial aid or by you, the $40 participation fee will be reversed (in the week following the fee payment deadline).   The resulting $40 credit will be refunded or applied to future charges.
