Getting to Know the Bursar's Office

Welcome Graduate Student

Thank you for visiting Lehigh University Bursar's website.  Most of our communications with you are going to be online. Open communication between you and our office is crucial to our mission of helping you be successful during your time at Lehigh University.  We strive to provide useful information, delivered when and how you need it.   Whenever emailing our department, emails should be sent from your Lehigh account and should include your LIN (Lehigh Identification Number).  If calling or using the chat feature, please be prepared to provide your LIN.

You will receive email notifications when a bill is available to view and payment can be made directly online through the e-Bill Suite. You can even create and save a financial profile to make future payments that much simpler. At any time, you have the ability to view charges and payments on your account.

It is important to make sure that your home address is always up-to-date.  

Navigating the Lehigh University Website

Our website is designed to help students and others to find useful information regarding tuition, billing, health insurance and due dates. You can browse the Tuition & Billing part of the website to find the latest on tuition and required fees, billing and due dates for each term. As always, if you have any questions along the way, you can write to us at

An Important Note About Refunds

It is Lehigh University's policy that students with a credit balance that resulted from an overpayment are eligible to be refunded.

1) If the payment was from a check drawn on a domestic bank, there is a two week waiting period before a refund can be issued.
2) Credit balances resulting from a loan, grant, scholarship and/or other forms of financial aid will be eligible for refund after the 10th day of class.
3) Upon withdrawing from any course, students receiving financial aid (scholarships/grants, tuition awards, loans, etc.) must have their aid re-evaluated prior to the issuance of a refund.
4) Payments made using a credit card will be refunded back to the credit card. Contact the Bursar's office to start the process ( or 610.758.3160)

Academic fees (such as the Wellness Fee and course associated fees, etc.) are generally not refundable after the first day of class. 

Refunds are made to the student, unless a) the student has authorized, in writing, a third party to receive the refund, or b) the check payment on the account was from an unrelated third party, such as  a sponsoring corporation.
