Students unable to pay their account balance in full when due may enroll in a payment plan arrangement. Lincoln Christian University offers the opportunity to spread the amount due over several interest-free monthly payments by enrolling in a payment plan. The cost for this service is a $50 annual enrollment fee. Students may make payments in one of three ways:
Automatic Bank Payment (ACH)
ACH payments are those payments students have authorized Lincoln Christian University to process directly with the students' financial institutions. It is simply a bank-to-bank transfer of funds that a student has pre-approved for his or her expenses at the University. Payments may be made from either one's checking or savings account. Payments are processed on the 15th of each month beginning in July until the balance is paid in full.
Credit Card Option
Many students have requested the option of charging their monthly tuition payment to their credit card. This enables students to take advantage of various bonus programs, like frequent flyer miles, offered by credit card companies. Students electing to use this option will have their monthly payment automatically charged to the credit card they designate. Payments will be charged on the 15th of each month beginning in July until the balance is paid in full.
In addition to paying via ACH or credit card, students have the option of paying their student bills through PayPal. Information on this option is available on the Student Portal.
To enroll in a payment plan, please submit a Lincoln Christian University Payment Plan Agreement Form. All current semester costs must be paid in full before proceeding to the next semester.
