Payment Options

The payment options below provide ways for students to pay the Fee Bill and Billing Statement at Louisiana State University. The payment options can be used in conjunction with financial aid (loans, grants, scholarships), and all students are encouraged to apply for Financial Aid.

Bursar Operations offers a simple and convenient interest-free monthly deferred payment plan that allows students to spread out payments for tuition and fees over several months. Students can enroll any time through myLSU. Please note, effective Fall 2021, a one-time service fee in the amount of $40 will be assessed. 

Tuition payments may be made online through myLSU. Bank drafts and all major credit cards are accepted. 

Bank Draft

Bank drafts, also known as an e-check, is an electronic version of a paper check that has faster payment processing times and less waste. With a bank draft, money is electronically transferred from the payers’ checking account and direct deposited into LSU’s account. An approved payment in process will protect the student’s schedule from being purged unlike a check sent through the postal service. 

If a bank draft is returned due to insufficient funds, for a closed account, a $25 service fee will be assessed on the student account. If this occurs, the student will not be able to make another bank draft until the insufficient draft is cleared with certified funds (credit card, money order, cashier’s check, or cash).

If an incorrect account number is inputted, LSU is notified by the bank approximately three to seven business days after the bank draft is submitted on the student account . When this happens, the student will receive an email notifying them of the returned bank draft. Upon receipt of the email, the charge will be reinstated on the student account within 24 hours.  

Debit/Credit Card

LSU accepts MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover. Please note there is a 2.5% processing fee that will be added to all card payments.

Please note a $25 service fee will be assessed on all payments returned due to insufficient funds.

Cash, check, and money order payments may be presented at the Office of Bursar Operations located on the first floor of the four-story Thomas Boyd Hall. The Office of Bursar Operations is open Monday through Friday from 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
