Billing Rights and Responsibilities
Please take a few moments to read and understand the student billing rights and responsibilities with Louisiana State University. Remember, LSU offers several payment options, and students have 24-hour online access to their account details through myLSU.
- If students register for a course, charges are incurred, then the payment deadlines must be met.
- If payment is not received in full by the payment due date or if overdue charges remain from a prior term, students may be subject to purging procedures and be purged from one or all courses.
- An overdue balance may cause the student to lose eligibility for services, such as future registration, transcripts, diplomas, and access to purchase athletic event student tickets.
- Students are responsible for all debts incurred, regardless of whether or not a bill is received, or payment is to be made by a third party.
- If students are no longer interested in taking a course, the student must officially drop or withdraw from the course. Do not depend on the purging process to drop or withdraw from a course. Drops and withdrawals are prorated, depending on the number of days passed since the course start date. Please check the refund schedule before dropping or withdrawing from a course. If financial aid was awarded, the student should consult the LSU Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships prior to a drop or withdrawal.
- Unpaid accounts are subject to collection procedures. Accounts that are 90 days past due may be referred to the Louisiana Department of Justice Office of Attorney General (AG). Prior to this action, a billing statement and a warning notification will be sent to the student’s email and mailing address on file.
Stay informed to avoid penalties for nonpayment, keep the student information updated in myLSU to receive all University communications. Be accountable by reading and understanding the student’s financial obligations while pursuing educational goals.
