Financial arrangements for payment plans can be made through the Financial Office. Most students are required to pay a minimum $200.00 down payment with a balance payable in a low monthly payment. Note that textbooks and graduation fees are not included in the tuition costs. A prepay discount of 10% is given to those who remit their tuition in full at the time of enrollment. Any accounts over 30 days delinquent are subject to a 10% late fee for the delinquent amount.
Even after completing all academic and other requirements for your degree, including a thesis or dissertation, a degree candidate must have fully paid all tuition, fees and all other charges due to LBU before participating in the commencement exercises, receiving a diploma, or receiving a transcript from the institution.
When a program is dropped or withdrawn the following refund policy will apply:
No refund will be made of the enrollment fee or postage fee.

b. From 31-60 days from enrollment, 60%
c. From 61-90 days from enrollment, 40%
d. After 91 days from enrollment, 0%
