Drop for Non-Payment Policy
What Is It?
Drop for Non-Payment procedure is the administrative process by which students are disenrolled from classes when they do not pay their account balance owed to the university for an academic term.
Why Do We Do It?
The procedure is rooted in the university’s broader commitment to the concept of student success, consisting of "a collaboration and shared responsibility among students, faculty, staff, and administration." It is intended to ensure students are successful in fulfilling their financial obligation to the university, which in turn frees them to succeed in their educational journey. It does this by providing 1) clear and reasonable payment requirements and timelines, 2) personalized communication campaigns, 3) staff assistance in navigating complex decisions, and 4) safeguards against the incurring of unnecessary debt.
Communication to students if you do not pay on time
If you are an admitted student and the University does not receive the amount due on your student account by your billing due date, the following will happen:
You will be charged a late payment fee of 1.5% of balance owed for each month that your bill is not paid past the published due dates.
We will place a hold on your student record. Holds due to non-payment may have the following consequences:
Your current registration may be canceled including classes you are already attending.
You may be prevented from registering in the future, ordering a transcript, and/or being issued your diploma.

2. Payment Plan with Nelnet Campus Commerce (Formerly Tuition Management Systems, TMS)
We are pleased to offer installment payment plan options which enable families to make more manageable payments spread throughout the year. We always encourage families to pay as much as possible out-of-pocket, using loans as a last resort. However, if you do need to borrow, you can minimize loan debt by combining the Monthly Payment Plan with an education loan of your choice. Visit Payment Plan to view a combination strategy and arrive at a plan that best suits your circumstances. You may enroll in a payment plan online QuikPAY. You may pay by check, credit card, or you may have monthly payments deducted from your checking or savings account. Please keep in mind that there is a fee for credit card payment. Your monthly statement from Lasell University will reflect your payments made to Nelnet. You will see a credit for the outstanding payment plan balance for each term as an "Anticipated Credit". If your balance due to the University is greater than zero, your plan may be under budget. You may contact Nelnet directly to revise your budget.
NOTE: Your Nelnet contract must be current in order for any remaining portion of the contract to be reflected on the Lasell bill as anticipated. Delinquent contracts are subject to late payment fees.

Credit balances for enrolled students will remain on the account unless a refund is requested by the student by email, or unless Federal funds exceed the cost of attendance. Excess Federal funds will be issued to the student in accordance with Federal regulations. Refunds will be issued within three weeks of the request and will be made via direct deposit. For students who do not add direct deposit information, a refund check will be mailed to the address on file. Students who request a refund prior to the end of the academic year understand that, if additional charges are assessed and/or financial aid is adjusted following receipt of a refund, a balance may be due to the University. Refunds may not be processed for credit balances based on anticipated aid. All aid must be disbursed to the University before a refund can be processed. Refunds may be processed up to the point charges for the new semester have been posted to the student account. Accounts will be reviewed periodically for non-enrollment and a credit balance refund will be issued automatically. Refunds will not be issued automatically for credits under $1.00.
To request a refund the student should email firstname.lastname@example.org from their Lasell University email address and request the exact amount to be refunded. Please also confirm that the refund preference has been verified.
Upon login to MyLasell, under University Resources, select Pay MyBill. Students can add their banking information and then may change it at any time. Students who do not anticipate receiving a refund are still encouraged to set up their direct deposit information.
All students should also login into Self-Service at selfservice.lasell.edu at least once each semester to verify their mailing address, name and date of birth are correct.
If you experience any difficulties, please contact Nelnet Refund Helpline at 888-470-6014.
