Payment of Tuition and Fees
Accounts are payable in full on or before the date specified on the semester invoice. Semester course schedules and student account invoices will be mailed 4-6 weeks prior to the start of each semester and will indicate courses and total charges for tuition and fees (also available on SONIS Web). Failure to pay in full and/or to demonstrate approved financial aid coverage before the date specified on the semester invoice will result in an automatic drop of all courses.
Students seeking additional information regarding tuition payment plans should check with the Cashier and/or Financial Aid Office. This means when you register for classes with the Lakeview College of Nursing Director of Enrollment/Registrar, a bill will be generated that will reflect tuition and fees for the upcoming semester(s) registered. Payment will be due on the date specified on the semester invoice. If payment has not been received prior to that date, on that date you will be dropped from enrollment in your class(es). Students may re-enroll in classes with permission of the instructor and payment, or arrangements for payment, of tuition and fees with a late payment fee being assessed (Please check the Academic Calendar for specific dates and fees). It is important to pre-register for an upcoming semester during the time designated for pre-registration. This enables you to determine your educational costs and need to seek financial aid early enough to make payment due dates.
All fiscal obligations must be cleared prior to registration for a subsequent term and prior to graduation on both campuses.
You should be aware that until your fees are paid in full we will not allow you to register for next semester classes and, therefore, not attend class or clinical. All finanical obligations and EIU obligations must be met. This situation can jeopardize your successful progression towards your goal for graduation. Outstanding fees for graduating seniors must be paid prior to graduation. Failure to make restitution will result in a holding of the student's diploma, transcripts, and Certification of Education form sent to the State by the College which allows you to sit for the NCLEX examination.
Financial obligations may be met through direct payment, scholarships, grants, loans or payment plans. Information about financial assistance may be obtained from the College Financial Aid Office. Any funding source received on the student’s behalf, and processed by Lakeview College of Nursing, shall first be applied to any outstanding current balance of the direct cost of tuition, fees and books.
Students can demonstrate the ability to pay tuition and fees in one of the following methods:
- Payment in full prior to the start of classes by the specified billing deadline.
- Authorized (completed and verified file) financial aid and/or scholarship award at a level to fully cover tuition and fee costs.
- Authorized third party pay.
- Utilization of the FACTS tuition payment plan secured by specific billing deadline.
Any outstanding balance owed by students for tuition, fees, and books, after the funding source has been exhausted, may be paid to Lakeview via the student FACTS payment agreement and/or cash, check, money order, Visa or MasterCard. Students must maintain prompt monthly payments to be eligible for continued payments via FACTS.
To sign up for FACTS fill out the form located on their website, https://signup.mypaymentplan.com/signup/T1pp?coll=lakeview. Please make sure you know your balance due and student ID number before filling out the form. Please contact Christina Ingram at 217-709-0922 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Students must keep current with fiscal responsibilities and follow financial aid guidelines if utilizing this resource. Students must use financial aid for semester intended. (e.g. It is not possible for students to use fall loan monies for the summer semester).
A Lakeview College of Nursing student who has a balance through Lakeview or EIU, will not be permitted to register for a subsequent term until the student has demonstrated the ability to pay through one of the methods listed.
Any Lakeview College of Nursing student who has a hold on their account will not be allowed to register for the upcoming semester until all holds are removed. Examples of holds on an account might be due to outstanding fines, financial aid exit interview, writing composition requirement, updated transcript submission, missing records, judicial affairs, or EIU holds for Charleston campus students.
