Important Information from Lehigh University Office of the Bursar regarding Spring 2022
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!
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/
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.
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.
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.
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.
Lehigh University has partnered with Flywire to offer our international students the ability to make international wire payments. Flywire 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/
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.
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.
