Payment of Tuition and Fees

Accounts are due and payable in full on or before the date specified on the semester invoice, in accordance with the academic calendar. Students Account Statements are mailed once and thereafter, students may log into their online student account (SONIS) to view their account statements. Students who do not pay in full, enroll in the tuition payment plan, and/or demonstrate approved financial aid coverage before the date specified will be dropped from all courses. Any funding sources 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.

Payment methods:

  • Cash, check, debit/credit card payment to the LCN cashier in person/mail/phone.
  • Established third-party payment agreement (such as College Illinois, Veterans Benefits, WIA, Vocational Rehab, etc.).
  • Utilization of the Nelnet Business Solutions (NBS), formerly FACTS, tuition payment plan (enrollment fee applies).

  • Confirmation of approved private educational loan from the Financial Aid Office.
  • Authorized financial aid (completed and verified file) and/or scholarship award at a level to fully cover tuition and fee costs. Please refer to the Financial Aid section for more information.
