Financial Aid for Business Students

Affordable Private Education

Our low tuition makes Lewis University the most affordable Catholic university in Chicago and one of the most affordable private colleges in all of Illinois.

We also offer tuition deferment for employer assistance for working adults to make it as easy as possible to pay for your education:

Deferred or Direct Payment Plans

If your company provides reimbursements for educational expenses, you can elect to defer your tuition payment to 6 weeks beyond the end of the term - giving your employer time to verify your grades before reimbursing your tuition. This option is not automatic. To take advantage of the "Tuition Payment Agreement", students must complete and submit a one-time Master Enrollment Tuition Payment Agreement (TPA) form. In addition, each semester (including the first semester of enrollment), the student will be required to submit a letter from his/her employer to Lewis University, Office of the Bursar, by the first day of class.

The Direct Payment Plan bills employers who reimburse 100% of their employees' tuition costs.

Installment Payment Plan

An Installment Tuition Payment Agreement plan is available for students who cannot pay the full balance by the first class day of the term. An ITPA form must be completed before the first class day of the term.

Employer Tuition Discount

Lewis University is pleased to offer our partner employees a tuition discount.
