Billing Procedures

Tuition, room, and board charges are billed by the semester. Monthly statements will be published through Loras College’s online system, CASHNet. The college does not mail paper statements to students and/or parents. Students can access their account online by going to the Loras College Portal, selecting Loras Links, then eBill, then Make a Payment. For a parent or authorized user to access a student account, please review the instructions on how to set up an authorized user/payer located on the eBill page of the Loras College Portal. Statements will be published online in early July for the fall term, early December for the January and spring terms, and early May for the summer term.

Loras College requires ALL students to make payments in accordance with a payment plan on their student account. By registering for classes, the student is agreeing to make payments under this plan. A student may choose to pay the balance of his/her account in full prior to the start of the semester with no penalty. Payments being made in full are due by August 15 for the Fall term and December 15 for the Spring term. Students wishing to make monthly payments can find the payment plan amount under the Installment Payment Plans section of his/ her online student account. Please note—this payment amount may fluctuate each month if charges and credits are applied to the student account. Students who do not fulfill their monthly payment requirement will be assessed a nonrefundable $50 service charge each month if the payment is not received by the 15th of the month.

Refund Policy

A student who has preregistered for, or is attending classes, but decides not to attend Loras College must inform the Retention Coordinator in writing of the change in plans. Students are liable for ALL charges until official notice of withdrawal is received. If a student leaves the College for any reason, the student account becomes due immediately. If a student has an outstanding balance on the student account, the account is coded as delinquent. Accounts in delinquent status are subject to a 1% (12% annual) delinquency charge on the outstanding balance each month until the account is paid in full.

If a student leaves the College for any reason, the student account becomes due immediately. If a student has an outstanding balance on the student account, the account is coded as delinquent. Accounts in delinquent status are subject to a 1% (12% annual) delinquency charge on the outstanding balance each month until the account is paid in full.

Dropping a class: After the 20th day of class, financial aid will not be adjusted when a student drops a class. Classes dropped prior to this date will result in an adjustment at the same percentage basis as is used for students who withdraw from all classes.

Room and Board adjustments: Students who move in, but withdraw from school on or before the first day of class, will be charged 5% of the cost of room and board. Students who are still enrolled but are allowed to move off campus or drop a meal plan will have charges adjusted on the same percentage basis as is used for students withdrawing from school. If a student terminates a housing contract after taking residence, the student is responsible for buying out the remainder of the contract at 50% of remaining costs. This does not apply to first year students. Students leasing houses or apartments will be bound by the terms of their lease so the refund schedule is not applicable.

Financial Aid

The Office of Financial Planning processes student loans and provides information about Federal loan eligibility. Students who borrow a Federal Direct Subsidized or Unsubsidized loan are borrowing directly from the Federal government. All new students will be required to complete a Direct Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN) and Entrance Counseling on the Federal Student Aid website. New borrowers must complete both of these requirements before the loan proceeds will be disbursed to the student account. Other than completion of the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) along with Entrance Counseling, and the Master Promissory Note, there is no additional application and no additional requirement for the Federal Direct Loan Program.

Important to Note:

  • Half of the net total loan amount will be applied to each semester. Please be aware that the net amount of the Direct Loan will be slightly lower than the total amount awarded to the student due to the origination fee charged to the borrower by the Department of Education’s loan processor at the time of disbursement.
  • We are required to wait until 10 days prior to the start of the term before disbursing federal funds to students, so the anticipated disbursement amount for each semester will appear as pending aid on the semester’s first two billing statements. If the loan has not been credited to the student account by mid-semester, contact the Office of Financial Planning or use the Federal Student Aid website to learn the cause of the delay.
  • Additional details are outlined in our Return of Federal Financial Aid policy.
