Students may pay their tuition and fees with the following options: cash, money order, credit card (Visa and MasterCard only), bank check, traveler's check, or personal check (students paying by check should make the check payable to Lehman College). Payment can be made by mail, in person, drop box (do not deposit cash), fax, or submitted via the Web (using eSIMS). The College will not accept second-party checks. The College will not accept a personal check from any student who has previously tendered a check that was returned by his/her bank.
If a student has an outstanding financial obligation that may be owed to Lehman College or any of its affiliated corporations, Lehman College officers or their designees are authorized to act as the student's agent to endorse and negotiate any checks that he/she may be entitled to receive from any source of financial aid: Federal, State, City, public or private, College or other, to the extent that such authorization shall be used to fulfill this obligation. This authorization is effective as long as there is an outstanding balance owed for any semester.
Students who do not make full payment on their tuition and fees and other College bills, and whose accounts are sent to a collection agency, will be responsible for all collection costs, including agency fees, attorney fees, and court costs, in addition to whatever amounts the student owes the College. In addition, non-payment or a default judgment against the account may be reported to a credit bureau and reflected in the student's credit report.
Financial aid: Matriculated students who are recipients of financial aid must present proof of their awards at the time of registration. They will be required to pay any difference if the financial aid does not fully cover the amount due. All recipients of financial aid should be aware that if they fall below full-time enrollment because of withdrawal or cancellation of a course or courses, they may no longer be entitled to their financial aid. Students who use TAP, Pell Grant funds, or any other financial aid toward meeting their financial obligation should consult with the Financial Aid Office about any impact on their current semester entitlement and future semester awards. Students who are not eligible for financial aid must pay tuition and fees in full on the day of registration.
