Payment Plan

Students will be assessed a $130 non-payment penalty fee if payment arrangements are not made by the first day of class each semester and charges are not paid in full by November 1 (fall) and May 1 (spring).

Students can choose one of the following payment plan options for each semester (fall, spring, and summer):

Option 1: Pay-in-full

Cash, check, or money order payments are accepted in the Bursar Office.  Credit card payments (American Express, Discover, MasterCard, or Visa) are only available online and include a convenience fee.  ACH (checking or savings) payments are also available online as a NO FEE option.

Online payments are made at

Option 2: Monthly payment plan through Tuition Management Systems (TMS)

Lewis University understands that sometimes students need help managing their tuition bill. Tuition Management Systems (TMS) provides Lewis University with payment plan services which are available for Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters.

This option allows students to manage their charges with an interest-free monthly payment. Students work directly with Tuition Management Systems (TMS) to sign up and establish monthly payments based on their bill and estimated financial aid.

There is a non-refundable fee due at the time of application. Each term (Fall, Spring, and Summer) requires its own application. Plans are created directly with TMS via the Web. Get started by visiting the Student Account Center website at

Plan Terms: Tuition payment plans administered by TMS offer students the opportunity to pay tuition, interest free, in monthly installments, beginning as early as 5/15 (fall semester) or 11/15 (spring semester), respectively. Students are able to sign up for a payment plan and make subsequent payments completely online. This convenient online option also allows for parents, guardians, or others to be identified as the primary payer. This person has access to view the payment plan arrangement and make subsequent payments. Other benefits include the option for automatic payments, a toll-free number for the student payment plan center, and budgeting for other college expenses.

Each semester that a payment plan is needed, students must enroll online; enrollment is not automatic and must be student initiated. A $95 semester fee is charged for use of a payment plan; late payments will be assessed an additional $30 monthly fee. Enrolling in a tuition payment plan is easy.
