Electronic Statements (eStatements) are the official method of billing at Loyola Marymount University. All student billing statements are sent via email to the student's LMU Lion email account. Parents or guardians who would like to receive an eStatement must be granted access as an Authorized User in the Student Account Center.
The student is responsible for monitoring his/her student account online through the Student Account Center, and accessing their LMU lion email account regularly to check for correspondence.
eStatements are generated once a month and are available after the 20th of each month. Notification of a new eStatement is sent to the students lion email account and/or authorized users designated email address. Current and past eStatements are available for view in the Student Account Center.
eStatements display the total balance due and will not display your monthly payment amount, as monthly payment plan amounts are subject to recalculation throughout the entire month.
Tutorials on how to view your eStatement, check your balance, and setup an authorized user are available in the Student Account Center User Guide [PDF].
