Payment Plans

Payment of Fees

All expenses and fees must be paid in full by August 10 for fall semester and January 11 for spring semester.  The college will mail fall semester statements by July 15, and spring semester statements by December 1.  These statements will include credits for financial aid if completed (except work-study, which is paid directly to the student) and the tuition deposit.  Failure to pay the statement in full by the August or January dates, or file a payment program plan with Bethany by August 1 or January 1 will cause termination of classes, residence hall, and food service privileges.

Payment Options

Bethany realizes that individual student circumstances may not allow for lump sum payments by the due date.  BLC has developed a monthly payment plan that allows the student and their parent(s) to distribute the annual cost over two four-month periods from August through November and January through April. 

The student and/or parent(s) will authorize Bethany Lutheran College to deduct the student’s tuition and other educational costs from a checking/savings account or a debit/credit card. The student/parent understands the payment deductions will occur on the following dates:  

  • Fall  2015 - August 10, September 10, October 12 and November 10
  • Spring 2016 - January 11, February 10, March 10 and April 11

However, the student/parent(s) understands they may discontinue the program at any time by contacting the Business Office at Bethany Lutheran College. Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF) on accounts can cause termination of classes, residence hall, and/or food service privileges, depending on the amount paid and balance remaining. The processing fee for the monthly payment plan is $25 per semester (non-refundable). If a payment is received 5 days past the due date, a $10 fee is added.

If financial aid packaging cannot be completed prior to August 10 or January 11 due to tax filing issues, cash payment in the amount of $2,000 is required by August 10 or January 11. Subsequent payment of $2,000 will need to be made by September 10 or February 10 if financial aid package is still incomplete. If your financial aid package is not completed by October 12 or March 10, Bethany will terminate all classes, residence hall, and food service privileges, unless the remaining balance is paid in full. The college will withhold transcripts and all official college documents until a student’s account has been cleared.
