Tuition Payments

Electronic Payments

Our enhanced e-Commerce system offers greater functionality, expanded service features and environmental-friendly options to all students, parents and authorized users.

Enhanced e-Commerce features include:

  • Real time tuition account information
  • View / print billing statements
  • Paperless billing option
  • Direct deposit refunds
  • Student's ability to authorize parents, employers and other 3rd parties to view account / pay tuition online (instructional video)

Online tuition payment options include e-Check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.  Tuition payments by credit card will only be accepted online through our e-Commerce processor who will charge a 2.75% non-refundable convenience fee.  

e-Check payments are a FREE SERVICE and can be processed online or with a Bursar's Office representative.  Payments made by e-Check will be assumed cleared after 15 days.  Transcript and diploma holds will be lifted once payment has cleared.

The e-Commerce system should be available every day except during daily scheduled maintenance which occurs from 3:45AM (CST) until 8:00AM (CST).  Please only use your Campus Wide Identification Number (CWID) when logging into the e-Commerce system.  DO NOT use your Social Security Number as it may display incomplete account information. 

Students should access the e-Commerce system through LORA under the Tuition and Billing Section.  Once on the Account Summary page, click on Pay Tuition Online / View e-Bills / Add Authorized Users / Create e-Refund Profile. 

Parents should access the e-Commerce system through LORAPAR under the Tuition and Billing Section.  Once on the Account Summary page, click on Pay Tuition Online / View e-Bills.  Before parents can view their student's tuition statement or make a payment, the student MUST authorize their Parent / User in the e-Commerce system.  Once the student sets up this authorization (instructional video), the Parent or other Authorized User will be sent an email confirmation indicating they have been granted access.  For security purposes, an additional email will follow with a temporary password to the system.  Your email address and temporary password are required for your initial log in.  Once the Parent has logged into the e-Commerce system, they will be requested to complete the Authorized User profile and set up their own password.

Please note:  The LORAPAR sign on is different from the authorization and sign on credentials in the e-Commerce system.

Other Authorized Users will access the e-Commerce system here.  Please note that students MUST first grant access (instructional video) in the e-Commerce system before Other Authorized Users can access the system or make a payment.  Access will require an email address and password authorization that has been created by the student for the Authorized User to log in.

Employers as Authorized Users will also access the e-Commerce system here. Please note that as with parents and other authorized users, students MUST first grant access (instructional video) in the e-Commerce system before an employer can access the system or make a payment. Access will require an email address and password authorization that has been created by the student for the Employer to log in. Once the employer receives the email notification with the password, the employer should log in and complete the process by entering the information requested. Where it asks for Your Full Name, please enter the word ‘Employer -’ preceding the company or individual employer’s name so we will know this is an employer who has been granted access by the student.

Overpayments and/or Excess Financial Aid

If a credit exists on a student account due to an overpayment, withdrawal, or excess financial aid, a refund may be issued to the student upon request. If any portion of the bill was paid by credit card, the refund will be issued back to the originating credit card.  In the case of multiple credit card payments, the most recent card used will be refunded.  If any portion of the bill was paid by personal check, a refund may be issued after the personal check clears.  Please refer to the tuition refund schedule.  Any form of financial aid (loans, grants, or scholarships) will be the priority form of payment to the tuition account.  If a credit results from a combination of financial aid and a credit card payment after all adjustments have been made, the credit card will be refunded.
