Cost of Attendance

The Cost of Attendance at an institution is a set dollar figure which estimates how much it will cost you to attend college for a specific period of time. The Cost of Attendance may be different for individual students, based on such factors as enrollment patterns, state of legal residency and housing status. The Cost of Attendance is not constant and will vary at each institution. When determining the Cost of Attendance the following elements are taken into consideration: fees and tuition; room and board; books and supplies; transportation; and personal expenses.

Payment Options and Disbursement of Funds

Several payment options are available for students who have a financial obligation to Lewis-Clark State College. In addition to cash, checks, Debit Cards and E-Check, students may pay fees with VISA, MASTERCARD, DISCOVER or AMERICAN EXPRESS credit cards (for specific payment options and any service fees associated please contact Student Accounts). In the event that a student does not have the resources to pay fees in full, payment plans may be available. Students who have no delinquent accounts with the College and have not defaulted on any provisions of financial obligation to the College are given special consideration and may be permitted to defer fees. A payment plan requires a 50% down payment and a signed contract for the balance.

All fees and tuition must be paid in full or have a payment plan contract signed by the fifth official day of the semester. If your financial aid is not available, you will be expected to pay your fees from some other source.

Financial Aid should be available before the first official day of the semester for students who have met the Priority Deadline, returned their signed Award Letter, and are enrolled for the appropriate number of credits two weeks before classes begin. Residual checks and scholarship assistance are generally released the last business day before the first official day of the semester. Checks will be disbursed by a time schedule based upon last name. For additional information about fees, payment deadlines and check release, contact the Student Accounts department of the Controllers Office at (208) 792-2202 or studentaccounts@lcsc.edu

Students who are attending both semesters during the academic year may receive 50% of their total award at the beginning of each semester (Fall/Spring). Students who fail to meet the Priority Deadline must be prepared to make registration, housing and meal payments by the established deadline.
