Student Financial Services

We provide customer service and counseling to students, parents, and the LMU community while proactively assisting families in meeting their financial obligations to the university. 

The Office of Student Financial Services manages the Student Accounts Department, the University Cashier, and the Loan Office: Federal Perkins and Institutional Loans.  We are responsible for the billing of tuition and fees, collecting payments, processing refunds, adjusting students’ accounts, conducting entrance and exit counseling as well as managing the repayment for the Federal Perkins and Institutional loans.




The Student Accounts department is responsible for the financial administration of all student billing related to: tuition, room, board, and fees. Our office counsels students on their student account, help to resolve questions regarding balance due, provide students with the ability to sign up for payment plans, and so much more!





The Federal Perkins and Institutional Loans department is responsible for the student loan process, from securing the promissory note through repayment. As the university utilizes ECSI (Educational Computer Systems Incorporated) to manage these loans after disbursement, the Student Loans department works closely with ECSI to ensure compliance with federal regulations, University policy and donor intent.

The Federal Perkins and Institutional Loans department is also responsible for managing the required Entrance and Exit Interviews. 




The University Cashier deposits all university funds in compliance with University policies and guidelines. Students wanting to make in-person payments on their student account should visit the University Cashier located on the second floor in the Charles Von der Ah building.





Please note, FERPA laws prohibit us from discussing a student's account, unless the student grants you access as an Authorized User in the Student Account Center.
