Payment Deadlines

Important Dates

In June, you will receive a mailed statement for fall semester.

In December, you will receive a mailed statement for spring semester.

August 10 - Fall Semester Due Date

January 10 - Spring Semester Due Date

Your statement balance is due at the beginning of each term.  Additional incidental charges are billed throughout the month and due the 10th of the following month.

Additional Tuition Charges

If additional charges (for example: music lessons, extra credit hour charges) are incurred during the year, you will receive an email requesting you to review your web statement of account.

Incidental Charges

Other departments on campus send the Office for Financial Services charges throughout the school-year to charge to student's accounts.  These charges may include

  • Background Checks
  • Bookstore ID charges
  • Dining Dollars
  • Library Fines
  • Medical Charges
  • Parking Fines

Account balances are due on the 10th of the month.

As a courtesy to our students and their authorized users with financial rights, we send email reminders three weeks before a balance is due.  These reminders go to the preferred email address on record.

Unpaid Balance

A student who fails to make satisfactory arrangements for payment may have a registration or degree hold imposed and a late fee of $100 will be charged to the student account.

As a courtesy to you and your family, we send notifications throughout the term to students with past due bills who have not made satisfactory arrangements.

Returned Checks

If a payment is returned by your bank, we will require a new payment immediately and will charge your student account with a $25 fee.  Your bank may also charge you for the returned check.


If you leave or withdraw from Luther, you are still responsible for paying the full amount due on your statement or making satisfactory arrangements with the Office for Financial Services.  A transcript hold and diploma hold are placed on accounts that have a balance due.  The balance due must be paid in full before a hold will be released.
