Tuition, Fees, and Payment Options
Payment of Tuition
Fall semester electronic bills (eBills) will be available for viewing and payment in July, and spring semester eBills will be available in December, and summer semester eBills will be available in April. Payments are due as follows:
Fall semester: August
Spring semester: January
Summer semester: May
Credit card (American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and VISA) and eCheck (ACH) payments can be made at http://my.lasalle.edu. Credit card payments are subject to a 2.75 percent convenience fee; however, eCheck payments are not subject to a convenience fee. An ACH payment is an electronic debit of a checking or savings account. You must have your account number and routing number available to make an ACH payment. If you choose to pay via wire transfer, instructions are available on the secure portal. You must include your student ID number.
Write your student ID number on the face of the check/money order to ensure accurate and timely processing. A $45 fee will be assessed for all returned checks. If the University receives a total of two returned checks, all future payments must be made via cash, certified check, or money order. DO NOT SEND CASH THROUGH THE MAIL.
If full payment cannot be made, the La Salle University Payment Plan is available for the fall, spring, and summer semesters. All financial obligations must be satisfied before a student’s enrollment is finalized.
If a recognized third party (employer, labor union, foundation, etc.) is paying all or a portion of your tuition, you must send the official notification to the Student Accounts Office to be applied to your account. To be eligible, the third party must be a recognized organization, not an individual. The official notification must be on letterhead and contain the following, student name,
La Salle Identification number, amount that will be paid, billing instructions and signature of authorized representative. Remember to remit payment for any amount due, not covered by a third party. Third party billing authorizations are accepted in lieu of payment and should be received by the payment due date. Please fax or email your billing authorization to 215.951.1799 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Employer Assisted Graduate Deferred Payment Plan
La Salle University has established a deferred payment plan for graduate students who qualify for tuition reimbursement from their employer. Students accepted into the plan may defer payment of the portion of their tuition reimbursable under their employers’ program until 45 days after the end of the semester. Any balance not covered under an employer education assistance plan must be remitted by the payment due date. If you are using the Employer Assisted Graduate Deferred Payment Plan, you must follow these steps:
Complete the Deferred Payment Plan Application at the following link: http://www.lasalle.edu/financeadmin/bursar/EmployerAssistedDPP.pdf. Submit the form, along with a $50.00 payment, proof of employment letter and a copy of your employer’s reimbursement policy. You may forward the application and documents via email (email@example.com), fax (215.951.1799), or U.S. mail, to the attention of the Office of Student Accounts Receivable. If you choose to submit your application and documents via email of fax, you may remit your $50.00 application fee on the Student Portal via Br. LUWIS.
Late Payment Penalty
A one percent monthly late payment fee will be assessed to all students who have not made payment in full or acceptable payment arrangements by the tuition due date for the semester. The fee will be monthly.
If you are unable to make payment in full, you are encouraged to sign up for the La Salle Payment Plan or refer to the Financial Aid section of the University Web site for directions on how to apply for financial aid.
La Salle University reserves the right to amend or add to the charges listed above and to make such changes applicable to new and enrolled students.
Although payment of tuition is the responsibility of the student, the University makes every effort to assist students in attaining adequate levels of financial support. Students should utilize private, as well as public, fund resources (e.g., banks and private scholarships, as well as the government loan programs). The professional staff in the Office of Financial Aid will work with each student in reference to the loan programs.
Financial aid is also available from the sources described in this section. Applicants for financial aid are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the Web Institutional Data Form (WIDF). This form can be completed through the mylasalle portal. If the student is a loan applicant, all awards must be reported to the Financial Aid Office for loan eligibility computation. For further information, please call the office at 215.951.1070.
Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan
The Direct Unsubsidized Loan is an interest-accruing, fixed-rate loan available to students enrolled on a part-time or full-time basis. Graduate students may borrow up to $20,500 per year. Repayment for this type of loan begins six months after leaving school or enrolling less than half-time, and allows for up to a maximum of 10 years to repay.
Students who qualify for Veteran’s benefits should contact the Financial Aid Office at 215.951.1070. Information for full-time and part-time students is also available under the Active Duty Veterans link within the Tools and Resources section of http://www.lasalle.edu/financialaid/
