Student Financial Services
Important COVID-19 Updates
Our office is temporarily closed due to the university's decision to limit on-campus operations during COVID-19. You are welcome to contact our office between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Student Financial Services staff are remotely monitoring emails and answering calls Monday through Friday, and will respond as quickly as possible.
LMU continues to monitor the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and is working diligently for the safety and well-being of our community. Please visit the LMU Together Website for the latest information and guidance. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time of uncertainty.
Please note the following
- Online Payments: Due to delays in receiving and processing payments submitted via mail, Student Financial Services encourages students and authorized users to utilize the Student Account Center to setup electronic payment methods to ensure deadlines are not missed.
- Campus Recreation Fee: Student Recreation Fees will be reversed on all student accounts, effective immediately. Fees will be added on to the future housing and board fee, that will be assessed for those students who will live on campus during the fall 2020 semester.
- Tuition Late Fees: To accommodate last-minute decisions surrounding fall housing and classroom instruction, Student Accounts will waive all late fees associated with the July 20 tuition due date. It is the university's hope that this will provide students and their families more flexibility to determine the proper fall course of action for each unique situation.
- Online Portal: The Student Account Center is a secure 24/7 online portal, that allows students and authorized users to view account activity and electronic bills, make payments online, set up payment plans, schedule payments, and set up direct deposit for refunds. Please contact us with any questions.
