The College requires that all tuition and fees be paid in full prior to classes beginning in any semester, at registration for students who register late, or prior to the dormitory move-in date unless special arrangements have been made with the Business Office.
Outstanding balances and/or late payments will result in the suspension of the dormitory meal plan and any school activity including but not limited to clubs, field trips, athletics, etc. until payments have been made. A $50.00 late payment/financial arrangement fee will also be assessed. If timely payments are not made, the College reserves the right to refuse payment deferments to a student for subsequent semesters.
Lackawanna College also reserves the right to forward unpaid balances to our contracted collection agency or dismiss any students who do not adhere to scheduled payments or who attend classes without satisfying financial obligations. Any and all collection expenses incurred by the College to collect any delinquent receivables are the responsibility of the student.
Grades and/or transcripts will not be released to students who have outstanding balances. Registration for subsequent semesters is blocked for students with unpaid balances.
All questions concerning tuition costs, student invoices, payments, and payment dates should be directed to the Business Office.
Payment of tuition may be deferred if the student has provided a completed Employer Deferment Form signed by the student’s employer. Students are required to pay all fees and any portion of tuition not covered by their employer by the semester due date or at registration. Forms may be obtained online.
The Business Office accepts cash, personal checks, money orders, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.
Credit card payments may be made online using the student portal.
