Spring Semester Questions

What is the due date for the Spring 2021 bill?

The Spring 2021 bill is due January 4, 2021.

How can I pay the balance due on my bill?

VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express are accepted for tuition and fees paid over the web. When a credit card is used, a convenience fee of 2.75% will be charged in addition to the tuition and fees.

E-checks are available without a convenience fee. An e-check electronically debits a checking or savings account. Students can pay online via the portal. Log into myLyco, select WebAdvisor, under Financial Information and select Manage Your Student Account.

My parents are responsible for paying my tuition bill. How can my parents/authorized parties log in and view the bill?

Parents and other authorized parties may have the ability to view the bill as an authorized party. Students must set up authorized parties in Nelnet Business Solutions' Enterprise system. Students will login into the Nelnet Business Solutions' Enterprise website via WebAdvisor, select Financial Information and Manage Your Student Account. Once on the landing page in the Enterprise system, select Add an Authorized party and follow the instructions.

Authorized parties will receive an email from Nelnet Business Solutions with a link inviting them to set up the account. Each billing cycle, both the student and the authorized parties will receive an email notifying them that an eBill is available for viewing. Students and Authorized Parties receive a link in their email that takes them to the login page. After establishing the account, authorized parties may also go to the following link to sign on.

How can my parents/authorized parties pay the bill?

Once the authorized payer is established they can make payments by selecting "Make Payment" in the Nelnet Business Solutions' Enterprise System. Credit card (VISA, Mastercard, Discover and American Express), checking and savings account information from a bank within the United States can be entered at the Nelnet Business Solutions' Enterprise system website and payments will be transferred electronically to Lycoming College. You will have the option to have the site retain your bank account information or you may enter it each time you make an online payment.

In the interest of security and privacy, each authorized party is assigned a separate login and password to access their account and payment history. Students cannot view nor do they have access to payee information.

Do I need to pay my bill in full by the due date?

No. Lycoming College offers tuition payment plans administered by Nelnet Business Solutions' Enterprise system as a convenient way to pay tuition! Payment plans offer manageable ways to pay your tuition in monthly installments, rather than one lump sum, and can be used to cover your entire bill, or just the portion remaining after grants, loans, and financial aid. This plan must be set up before the due date of the bill in order to prevent a late fee.

Students and authorized parties may log into the Enterprise system and select set up payment plan. For more information about the payment plan, you may go to:

Tuition Payment Plan

Will I be charged a LATE FEE if my bill is not paid by the due date?

If the bill is not paid and/or loans approved and ready for disbursement, (College certified) a $25 late fee may be posted to your student account.

What are the charges listed on my bill?

Entries include recent charges and credits for the Fall Semester, and charges and credits for the Spring Semester. The total of these entries and any balance carried forward are used to arrive at the "Statement Balance."

What is a Stafford Loan?

A Federal Stafford Loan is a low-interest, government sponsored loan available to students. Go to https://www.lycoming.edu/financial-aid/loans.aspx for more information on the Federal Stafford Loan.

What if my Stafford Loans do not appear under my Estimated Aid?

Federal Stafford Loans which were processed (and certified by the Financial Aid Office) at the time the statement was upload will be listed in this section for one-half of your total loan less the approximate origination or guarantee fee. The Financial Aid office is unable to approve a Stafford Loan until an Entrance Counseling session and Master Promissory Note is on file. If you completed the online MPN and Entrance Counseling session and it still does not appear, contact Financial Aid at (570) 321-4040 for assistance.

What if I need additional loan funds to cover my balance?

Parents can apply for a Federal Parent Plus Loan. The Federal Parent PLUS Loan is a low-interest, government sponsored loan available to parents of dependent students. Go to https://www.lycoming.edu/financial-aid/loans.aspx for more information regarding the Parent Plus Loan.

Will paying my Spring semester balance in December have any effect on the person claiming me on their taxes for 2020?
