Installment Plan

General Information

The Semester Installment Payment Plan is available for the Fall, Spring, and Summer Semesters. Lander University is pleased to offer students enrolled at the University a payment plan to finance the cost of University Fees, Housing, Health Service and Food Service fees over the period of a semester. The plan is offered exclusively by the University and replaces any past plan. Students may still elect to make full payment at the time of registration.


How to Enroll

To use the payment plan option, sign on to the MyLander Portalwith your Lander ID and password. Under the Student Highlights select Student Payments/ Payment Plans/eRefunds/1098Ts. You will be directed to University’s payment portal via Touchnet.  Select the Payment Plan tab at the top of the page and follow the payment instructions.


Questions about the Plan

Students at Lander University whose student account balance for University fees, Housing, Health Service, or Food Service fees totals $200 or more may enroll. Students with past due amounts from previous semesters are not eligible until such amounts are paid. Past due amounts may be included with your first payment but may not be financed over the course of the semester.

Students must sign a promissory note before the appropriate drop date, and a $50 participation fee is required to enroll in the Bearcat Payment Plan. A 10-percent down payment of the balance owed is due by the semester payment deadline. The remaining balance is payable to the University in four monthly installments of 25 percent each.

For the Fall semester, the payment dates are Sept. 1, Oct. 1, Nov. 1 and Dec. 1.

For the Spring semester, the payment dates are Feb. 1, March 1, April 1 and May 1.

Leaving school before the end of the semester does not relieve the student of the obligation to complete all remaining payments.

The University offers two convenient options to assist students with their education for the summer:

5-INSTALLMENT PLAN: Available to students who are registered for Summer, Summer I, or Summer II terms by May 21. This plan allows for five equal installments, with the first payment due upon enrollment in the plan. Additional installments are due June 15, June 30, July 15 and July 27.

  • 3-INSTALLMENT PLAN: Available for Summer II students who register after May 21. This plan allows for three equal installments, with the first payment due upon enrollment in the plan. The second and third installments are due July 15 and July 27.
All University Fees (including Course fees and general fees), Housing and Food Service fees may be included in the plan. Excluded costs are opening balances, parking permits, books and supplies purchased in the Bookstore, all fines, and other miscellaneous costs at the University.

The plan is interest free. The University does assess an administrative charge of $50 each semester to offset the additional cost of record keeping and billing.

If you wish to add/reduce hours or make any changes to your housing assignment or meal plan, see the Payment Plan application for instructions. For the cost of these items, refer to the current fee schedule which is available in the Business Office.
The University reserves the right to assign your delinquent account to a collection agency, and you will be responsible for the fees of any collection agency, which may be based on a percentage at a maximum of 33.3% of the debt, and all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney fees we incur in such collection efforts. By providing your telephone number, you are agreeing and giving express consent that Lander University or anyone working on their behalf, including third party vendors, may contact you at the number provided by manually dialing the number or by using automated dialing. Checks returned by the bank may result in cancellation of this plan with the entire amount becoming due and payable.
  • When you are able to view your bill online, a payment plan link should be available at the bottom of the bill screen. You will be able to sign up for the payment plan and make your payment online via the MyLander Portal.
