Your tuition may be paid with cash (in person only), personal check, Visa, Master Card, Discover, enrollment in a Tuition Loan Payment Plan, and/or some type of financial assistance.
Any check or credit card transaction rendered to Lakeland Community College in payment of amounts due to the College and dishonored for any reason shall be charged a return payment charge. The student shall not be permitted to register for any subsequent term or obtain grade transcripts or receive grades for the current term until his or her financial obligation has been met.
Lakeland offers an online Tuition Loan Payment Plan to spread the cost of tuition and fees over the term. You can set up automatic installment payments using a credit card or electronic check. You will be able to manage your account online and receive email notifications of changes to your account status. To enroll in a Tuition Loan Payment Plan, log in to myLakeland.
Note: There is a processing fee to enroll and late fees apply for unpaid accounts. If you have any questions please contact the Cashier's Office
Students who have received the Offer of Financial Assistance Award Letter, and who have registered for the minimum number of credit hours required to receive the aid, will have their aid automatically applied to tuition charges at the time of registration.
The balance of each student's award will be mailed directly to his/her home to be used for any other educational expenses during the third week of classes. The student must have a means to cover indirect educational expenses until the expense check is mailed to his/her home.
If you have not received the results of your application at the time of registration, inquire about the short-term loan program.
Students who officially withdraw from credit classes will receive a refund based on the schedule below.
Lakeland is required by law to classify student residency as follows:
All applicants and current students requesting a change of fees to in-state or in-county MUST provide a valid Ohio driver's license and appropriately dated proof of residence in one of the following forms:
A change to a Lake County address does not automatically change residency status. Students must submit acceptable documentation to the Registrar for review and approval.
Fees will ONLY be adjusted prior to or no later than the first day of the term. No mid-semester adjustments will be made. If documentation is presented after the start of the semester the next term will have the updated residency code listed.
Senior citizens may audit credit classes at Lakeland and have the instructional fee waived. The Admissions application fee is also waived. (Senior citizens only pay the general, lab and service fees if they audit a class.) See senior citizen registration dates. For more information contact the Admissions Office.
Senior citizens who wish to receive the special rate for auditing a class must come to the Admissions Office with proof of birth date after registering. The application and instructional fees will be waived for senior citizens. For more information contact the Admissions Office.
A senior citizen may take courses on a credit basis if his or her family income is less than 200% of the federal poverty guideline.
