STATEMENTS & POLICIES

Questions about student accounts should be directed to (610) 330-5145 or studentbilling@lafayette.edu.

Student bills are issued electronically by the College and administered by the Student Account’s Office. Tuition and fees are billed in early July for the fall semester and in early December for the spring semester. All bills are available online from the student’s Banner Self Service account. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) requires students to grant permission to others (such as parents or family members) to use the online billing system. Students can grant authorized users access by setting them up within the online billing system. The payment due date is approximately three (3) weeks prior to the start of classes for the semester and is set as Aug. 6, 2015 for the Fall 2015 semester.

The student account statement will reflect all of the information the College has about the amount due for (1) tuition, (2) room fees, (3) meal plans/board fees, (4) purchases made on account at the College Store, and (5) other student fees as well as any applicable payments and financial aid awards. Since financial aid, such as grants and loans, may be significant, students and families are strongly encouraged to begin this sometimes lengthy process early so the aid is available when needed to pay the student bills by the due date. It is the responsibility of the student to file and follow up with the Financial Aid office on all necessary financial aid forms to ensure that all anticipated aid is approved and credited to the student account in advance of the payment due date.

A late payment fee of $300 is assessed if payment is not received by the established due date and additional late fees are assessed on unpaid balances that remain after the first day of classes. Students will not be allowed to register or attend classes until accounts are paid in full or until satisfactory payment arrangements are made.

Charges for other expenses incurred during the semester such as room damages, bookstore charges, late payment fees, fines, etc., are billed monthly and due upon receipt of the bill.
