Important Information from Lehigh University Office of the Bursar regarding Spring 2022

Dear Student:

Enclosed is information on important programs that have significant impact on "how much and when" your payments will be due to Lehigh University. Please read carefully as we’ve made important changes to convert to online transactions to be more efficient and “green friendly”.

 

LEHIGH UNIVERSITY BILLINGS ARE PAPERLESS!   

  • Spring billing statements will be available online at: go.lehigh.edu/ebill the week of December 13th. The spring semester due date is January 3rd unless you are participating in the payment plan (see below).
  • If you wish to add online billing access to a parent or family member, you must visit the e-Bill suite at: go.lehigh.edu/ebill to grant access to these individuals as an Authorized User by December 10th in order for them to receive your Spring Semester billing notification.
  • Authorized Users must have their own log in credentials. Authorized Users are not permitted to log in using the student’s user id and password.
  • Students and Authorized Users will be notified via email when a new billing statement is available to view.
  • e-Bill will provide access to all billing statements and current account activity 24/7. You also have the option to make payments online.
  • Please visit the Bursar Web Page at: financeadmin.lehigh.edu/bursar or phone our office at 610.758.3160 should you have any questions.

 

1. SPRING SEMESTER 3 PAYMENT PLAN (3PP): Application and 1st Payment due January 3rd

Participation in the “3 Payment Plan” is optional.  The 3PP enables you to spread your semester's educational expenses over three monthly installments per semester. There is a $25 application fee to participate. Applications received after the January 3rd deadline will be subject to the $50 fee. To participate, you must submit a completed application along with your first installment payment by January 3rd. The application is not considered received/complete until the 1st payment is received.

The 3PP application, instructions for completing the application and general information can be found at: financeadmin.lehigh.edu/content/payment-plan-0. Should you choose not to participate in the optional 3PP, your balance for the spring semester will be due on January 3, 2022. A new payment plan must be completed each semester.

 

2. Employer Deferment Due January 3rd or at the time of registration

 If your graduate tuition at Lehigh University is reimbursed to you by your employer, you can request a deferment of the payment of your graduate tuition. To receive a deferment, print a copy of the Graduate Tuition Deferment Request and complete all student information, as well as the Payment and Deferment Calculation and sign the form where indicated. There is a $50.00 fee each time you wish to have your tuition deferred. The deferment is for your tuition only. The deferment fee and any other charges on the student account must be paid in full by the January 3rd due date in order to complete registration. Forms received after the January 3rd due date are subject to late payment fees. If you register after the spring billing or after the spring due date, the deferment is due by the January 3rd due date or at the time of registration.

 

3. Tuition Awards

 For Lehigh Graduate Students who are having their tuition paid by a university department award, such as TA, GA, RA, or a Research Account should complete a Tuition/Award Form. It is the student’s responsibility to reach out to their department if the proper paperwork is completed and the credit is not showing on their student account to avoid any late fees. If there are tuition awards not yet posted on your account (and the proper paperwork is complete) please complete Bursar payment worksheet found on our website (financeadmin.lehigh.edu/content/payment-plan-0)​​​​​to avoid additional fees.

 

4. Class Registration after the Spring Billing

 If you register for classes after the Spring billing is generated the week of December 13th, payment is due on January 3rd or at the time of registration if registration occurs after the January 3rd due date to avoid a $200 late fee.

 

5. Online Check Payments – post payment immediately or pre-schedule payment for future due date

Save a stamp! Avoid potential mail delays and expense of express mail delivery! Enjoy convenience of paying online at “e-Bill Suite” (visit go.lehigh.edu/ebill). For a parent or family member to have this option, the student must first establish the parent or family member as an “Authorized User”. There are no fees for using this service.

 

6. International Payments

Lehigh University has partnered with Flywire to offer our international students the ability to make international wire paymentsFlywire allows you to pay securely from almost any country and any bank, generally in your home currency. Please visit our website for more information: financeadmin.lehigh.edu/content/international-payments

 

7. Credit Cards Payments

Credit Card payments are now handled through PayPath, a tuition payment service. A non-refundable service fee will be added to your payment by the service provider. This service allows you to make real-time Credit or Debit card payments to your student account. PayPath accepts most major Credit/Debit cards for your convenience. A non-refundable PayPath service charge of 2.85% (minimum of $3.00) will be added to your card payment. Lehigh University does not receive any portion of this service charge. Lehigh also accepts ACH bank transfers outside of this service without charge.

 

8. 529 Payments

When requesting your 529 payments, please allow a minimum of 2 weeks for your 529 payments to process and for us to receive the payment to avoid a $200.00 late fee.
