Can I enroll if I owe a balance from a prior term?

Students who have not met their financial obligations may have a business hold placed on their accounts. Students with business holds are prevented from obtaining transcripts and enrolling in classes. In addition, students whose accounts are not paid in full at the time of graduation will not receive a diploma or any other certification of program completion.

How much will it cost for me to take classes at Lindenwood?

The amount that a student is charged depends on many factors. The rates depend on if you are undergraduate or graduate, a campus resident or commuter, and if you are a semester, MBA or Accelerated Degree Programs student. Also, depending on which course(s) that you are taking, there may be course fees. Please refer to the Tuition and Fees page.

For undergraduate day students, we have an Undergraduate Fee Calculator that will help you determine if you will have an out of pocket amount. This form is only an estimate, but may be a useful tool for your semester financial planning.

How do I get a book voucher?

Book vouchers are only issued if there is excess financial aid. 

To obtain a Book Voucher, please email your Student Account Representative. If eligible, disbursement of book vouchers will begin approximately two weeks before class starts.

For terms beginning in January 2020 and going forward, we will not require a refund request. We will be analyzing all student accounts and refunding all qualified credits and confirmed attendance weekly. Disbursements will begin the second Friday of every term. Please visit the Refund page for more information.

What is the convenience fee?

2.75% for domestic transactions* and 4.25% international transactions* is the convenience fee established to cover the debit and credit card transaction fees with on line payments.. *Note: Convenience fee percentage is subject to change.

Is there any way I can avoid paying a convenience fee?

You can avoid paying the 2.75% 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: 

Lindenwood University
Business Office
209 South Kingshighway
St Charles, Missouri 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.

Will students receive pro-rated tuition for the Fall 2020 term?

The modality for the final few weeks is simply shifting from hybrid to fully virtual after November 20. Course content and credit hours will not be impacted. Therefore, we do not have plans for pro-rating fall tuition as the level of engagement from faculty and students will not change. It’s important to us that our students receive the same quality education we’ve promised throughout the entire semester.

Will students who choose to remain home after November 20 receive pro-rated room & board?

Campus residences and dining facilities will remain open for all students who wish or need to return to campus, through the end of the semester. We do not plan to pro-rate room and board as all students have the option to remain on campus beyond November 20th, should they choose to return following the Thanksgiving break.
