      GRADUATE TUITION INFORMATION SHEET
    1. When enrolling in the payment plan the enrollment fee (and any monthly payments already
       past due) is due at REGISTRATION, with the next payment due on the 15th of each month
       thereafter according to which plan is chosen.

    2. The full graduate program amount is not charged immediately to your account. Tuition is
       charged to your account ONLY as you register for classes for each semester.

    3. Statements for students on the payment plan are provided for verification of payment and
       historical purposes only upon request. The account balance WILL NOT reflect your total
       balance since tuition is charged only as you register for classes.

    4. The payment plan provides for tuition only and applicable fees upon requests. Books
       cannot be included on the payment plan.

    5. The student must be CURRENT with payments and have a zero balance on your student
       account in order to receive grades, transcripts to be eligible for registration for an
       upcoming semester, or be eligible to graduate. It is the student’s responsibility to check
       this balance frequently through Web Advisor.

    6. Current credit/refund schedules apply to any student withdrawing from the University or
       ceasing to attend classes. You may lose a portion or ALL of your tuition payment if
       dropping a class or withdrawing. You may also owe a balance to Lincoln Memorial
       University.

    7. Students selecting a Stafford loan should contact the Financial Aid Office for further
       information at finaid@lmunet.edu. Remember, your program MAY REQUIRE YOU TO
       APPLY SEPARATELY for the summer term if additional funds are needed and not
       already listed on the LMU award letter. Please be sure to complete all necessary steps for
       your Stafford loan – sign and return a copy of the award letter accepting your loan, choose
       a lender, complete entrance counseling, and sign a Master Promissory Note. Your loan
       funds will not come in until all these steps are completed.

    8. A 1098-T tax form will be forwarded with tuition costs only indicated for the terms
       attended during the calendar year based on the date the charge was incurred. This form
       does not report what you paid, but the costs you incurred. Contact your tax advisor
       regarding tax deductions.

    9. If two consecutive payments are missed with Tuition Management Systems they will
       cancel your payment plan at which time your account balance will come due in full or you
       may be withdrawn from your classes.

    10. If a payment with Tuition Management Systems is late your account with them will be
        charged $40 per month for each late payment.

    11. Please be sure to check your LMU e-mail account frequently as this is our primary form
        of communication to you regarding all student account information. Due to privacy laws
        we cannot send information to outside addresses (i.e. hotmail, yahoo, gmail, etc.). If you
        have problems with your LMU e-mail account please contact the IS Help Desk at 423-869-
        7411.
