An email is sent to each registered student's fortlewis.edu email address and to authorized users email addresses (if the student has set them up for access) approximately four weeks prior to the start of Fall and Spring terms and approximately two weeks prior to the start of each Summer Session indicating that a new statement has been generated and is available for viewing. No paper bill will be sent. A new email is sent any time the billed amount changes and a new statement is issued.
Financial aid is applied to student bills approximately 5 days before each term begins. After the bill is paid in full, any extra money is refunded to the student. eRefunds are available starting this Fall 2013 term.
Fort Lewis College offers three payment options to students for the Fall and Spring terms to cover their institutional charges if they are not receiving financial aid or if the aid does not cover the entire bill.
- Payment in full by census date of each term: Pay your balance in full by the published census date of each term.
- Four Payment Plan: Payments are due by August 15, September 15, October 15 and November 15 for the Fall term and December 15, January 15, February 15, and March 15 for the Spring term. There is a $50 set up fee each term for this option and payments that are not paid on time will be assessed a $10.00 late fee. Enrollment is required each term and will be available once the billing is issued.
- Three Payment Plan: Payments are due by September 18, October 15, and November 15 for the Fall term and due by January 29, February 15, and March 15 for the Spring term.
