Financial Aid FAQs

FINANCIAL AID
If financial aid information is not on file by the first day of the semester, a $50 payment plan fee is added to the account and monthly billings are sent until the bill is paid in full. If financial aid does not cover all charges, the student may use either self pay option to pay the balance. If financial aid is in excess of the charges, a refund will be processed when application of financial aid creates a credit balance.

HOLDS
Failure to make timely payments on an outstanding balance results in a hold being placed on the account. This hold subsequently affects future registrations, transcripts and diplomas. Students are encouraged to contact the Student Account’s Office to discuss the balance and pursue arrangements for payment.

TAX INFORMATION: FORM 1098T
To comply with IRS rules, Lourdes has chosen to report qualified expenses billed and related scholarships/grants during a tax year. However, this could be confusing to the taxpayer. For students who register in the fall for the upcoming Spring term, the billing dates will fall in a different tax year than the actual dates of attendance. Therefore, if you registered in Fall of 2016 for the Spring 2017 semester, the charges will be reported for tax year 2016.

Since we cannot credit scholarships/grant to your account prior to the beginning of a semester, the amount of scholarships/grants reported will be reported in the tax year of the actual attendance for a semester (e.g., Spring 2017 registration reported in tax year 2016 but scholarships/grants reported in tax year 2017). Please share this information with your tax preparer.

Students can access their 1098-T 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through the Lourdes Portal.

Here are the instructions for a student to view their 1098-T:

  1. Login to the Lourdes portal
  2. Select ‘Web Self Service’
  3. Select ‘Student’
  4. Select ‘Student Records’
  5. Select ‘Tax Notification’
  6. Enter Tax Year:  “2017” and click submit

 

REFUND/WITHDRAWL INFORMATION

If a student withdraws before freeze date:
Tuition & fees charged are 0%
Tuition & Fees refunded are 100%

If a student withdraws after freeze date:
Tuition & Fees charged are 100%
Tuition & Fees refunded are 0%

A refund of tuition may be claimed in case of withdrawal from the University or from individual courses. Students must submit in writing a dated notice of withdrawal to the Registrar’s Office. The amount of any refund will be calculated based on the date the notice is received by the Registrar. Mere cessation of attendance does not constitute official withdrawal. Students who discontinue class attendance without officially notifying the Registrar during the refund period will be responsible for the full amount of tuition. Charges will be made if a student withdraws completely after the semester begins.

Any student who wishes to withdraw should contact their Advisor, who will initiate the written withdrawal notice for the student to submit to the Registrar’s Office. Withdrawing does impact a student’s account. Return to Title IV calculations must be calculated when a student receives federal financial aid. These calculations determine how much of the federal money a student earned and how much must be returned to the federal funding agencies. Additional information is available by contacting the Financial Aid Office.
