Is there any way I can avoid paying a convenience fee?
You can avoid paying the 2.85% domestic* and 4.25 international* convenience fee by paying online with an e-check, an electronic debit to your checking or savings account. You may also pay by personal check sent via U.S. Mail and made payable to Lindenwood University and addressed to:
209 S Kingshighway St
Saint Charles, MO 63301
Payments can be remitted in person by visiting the Fiscal Affairs & Business Office, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Always remember to include your student ID number on the check.
If I use my debit card to pay my student account charges, will I be charged the convenience fee
Yes. If you use your debit card to pay your student account charges, you will be charged the 2.75%*/4.25%* convenience fee.
Will the convenience fee that I am charged be included on my university student account statement?
No. The convenience fee is assessed by a third party company, in addition to the payment on the student account.
How will this appear on my credit card statement?
Two separate transactions will appear on your credit card statement: One transaction for the student account payment and one transaction for the convenience fee.
What if I’m getting a refund for tuition and fees, because of a credit balance on my student account and I paid my account with a credit card?
The University is required to refund any overpayments made by credit card back to the credit card account. The convenience fee is non-refundable.
