Student Account Policies

Validation and Clearing Process

For tuition and fees information consult the current Lyon College Catalog.

Student tuition and fees are due at the beginning of each semester before completion of registration and admission to classes. A detail bill is mailed approximately one to two months before the beginning of each semester. Students may pay semester charges in one of two ways discussed below.

All students must clear the business office. This means your account must be paid in full, or you must set up a payment plan via Nelnet. Residential students must clear before moving on campus. Non-residential students must clear before the first day of class. If students are not cleared by their deadline, a $25 late registration fee will be added to the bill.

 

Account Clearance Deadlines

Students may clear their accounts with the Business Office any time after they have received their billings for the following semester. 

If the student's account is not cleared by 4:30 p.m. on the second day of classes, the student will be removed from the meal plan and will not be allowed to eat in the college dining hall.

If the student's account is not cleared by 4:30 p.m. on the fourth day of classes, the student will be removed from the class lists and will no longer be enrolled in any classes at Lyon College.

 

Two Student Account Payment Options

Payment Plan Option

Lyon College partners with Nelnet Business Solutions (NBS) to offer payment plans to students for tuition and fees. These payment plans make paying for your education more affordable as they offer you the opportunity to spread payments over time.

These plans are interest-free; however, there is a $30 per semester administrative fee payable to Nelnet. Several plans are available so you can choose the one that best fits your needs.

Payment at the Beginning of a Semester

Term bills may always be paid in a lump sum at semester's beginning. These payments can be made through the Lyon College cashier at (870)307.7322 or via Nelnet. There are no additional fees with this option.

As a payment reminder, the Business Office will mail monthly statements to all students who have chosen payment plans.
