Graduate Financial Information
Your financial responsibilities to Lasell College include meeting payment deadlines, fulfilling loan or grant requirements, and addressing outstanding balances. The Office of Student Accounts’ official means of communication are via the student’s home address on file and/or the student’s Lasell email account. It is important to understand that communications will be directed toward the student, rather than a parent or guardian. If a parent or other individual is assisting with educational finances, please discuss all billing information with that person.
Tuition and Fees

Payments can be made on ePay by check (at no extra cost) or credit card with a convenience fee or wire via peerTransfer for international students. Please remember you can avoid the 2.75% convenience fee by paying through your checking or savings account. Electronic check payment (ACH) on ePay allows you to pay the student bill directly from your U.S. bank account. You will need the routing number for your bank and your account number. Both numbers are located at the bottom of your check or available from your bank. ePay is secure, fast, easy and facilitates timely payments. There is no extra cost for an electronic check and payment will be posted to the student account within minutes. Visit MyLasell and select the finance tab to complete payment by check.
If you prefer to complete payment by credit card, MyLasell accepts MasterCard, VISA, Discover or American Express. There will be a 2.75% convenience/service fee assessed to each credit card or debit card transaction. Payment will be posted to the student account within minutes. Visit MyLasell and select the finance tab to complete payment by credit card.
NEW ebill: For your convenience and as part of Lasell College’s continuing efforts to Go Green, beginning this fall we are pleased to announce that the billing process will be entirely paperless. Statements will now be delivered electronically by ebill. Students will receive notification in their Lasell College email account that an ebill is available to view. All ebill notifications will be sent to the student.
However, you may add financially responsible parties (mom, dad, spouse, sponsor) to your ebill account as 'shared users' who will also receive ebill notifications and may view and make payments toward your student account. The "shared user" feature enables parties to view details and make payments. Please consult those you wish to be designated a ‘shared user.’
Graduate students who are attending a minimum of 3 credits in a term may apply for the Federal Stafford Loan and/or private student loans.
To apply for the Federal Stafford Loan, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and provide copies of their most recent tax returns to the Student Financial Planning Office. View more information about student loans.
If some or all of the expected financial aid and loans do not appear on the statement, the student may not have completed the necessary paperwork or the award may have changed. Payment in full is still expected in the event additional paperwork is due to or in process with Student Financial Planning.
In extreme cases, a decision may be made to place a student on financial suspension. In the case of financial suspension, the student will receive a letter from the Office of Student Accounts. The notification will inform the student that his/her financial obligations must be settled immediately or he/she will be suspended from the College as of the date specified in the letter. Financial suspension means that the student will no longer be able to attend classes. Financial suspension will continue until the student has met his/her financial obligations to the College. The Office of Student Accounts will notify the appropriate faculty members that the student has been suspended, and should not be admitted into their classes; simultaneously, the Vice President for Academic Affairs Office, the Dean of Graduate and Professional Studies and the Registrar's Office will be notified of this action.
The College reserves the right to withhold all of its services to students who have not met their financial obligations to the College. Such services include issuing of transcripts, grades, diplomas, etc. A late payment fees of 1.5% of the outstanding balance due per month will be assessed to accounts not paid by the due date. Late payments will also jeopardize the student's enrollment status. Any uncollectable items may result in a returned items charge. In the case of delinquent accounts, if an outside collection agency is utilized, the student's account may be assessed collection fees.
Student Account with a Credit Balance
Lasell College students now receive refunds via a reloadable Visa-branded prepaid debit card (default method if no selection made at enrollment confirmation), or direct deposit (ACH) into their designated bank account. At the start of each term, all new and current students who are not already registered on the Refund Disbursement Portal, will receive an email inviting them to register and select one of the refund disbursement options. Students follow the secure link to register and set up their preference only once, and may change it at any time. All students should log into Self Service at selfservice.lasell.edu to verify their mailing address, name and date of birth are correct.
The reloadable card can be used at all retail stores that accept Visa prepaid debit cards. The card can also be used fee-free at ATM machines within the AllPoint ATM network.
Credit balances occurring as a result of excess loans or financial aid will not be issued until the entire loan and/or aid funds have been received by Lasell College. Credit balances for enrolled students will remain on the account unless requested by the student, or Federal funds exceed the cost of attendance. Excess Federal funds will be issued to the student in accordance with Federal regulation. Students who request a refund prior to the end of the academic year understand that, if additional charges are assessed and/or financial aid is adjusted following receipt of a refund, a balance may be due to the College.
Refunds may be processed up to the point charges for the new semester have been posted to the student account.
Graduate students who drop or withdraw follow the Withdrawal Schedule that appears in the Undergraduate Fees and Expenses section of this catalog. This schedule applies to students who have completed the appropriate steps to cancel enrollment at Lasell College. Non-attendance does not relieve the student of financial obligation or imply entitlement to a refund. Please contact the Registrar's Office at 617-243-2133 for proper procedures. For purposes of recalculating charges and fees, no differentiation is made between voluntary withdrawal, administrative withdrawal, or academic suspension.
Lasell College accepts payments by cash, money order, check, wire transfer, and credit card. Accepted credit cards are MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. To pay with a credit card, visit your self-service account and click "epay". Payment and/or financial aid must be finalized prior to enrollment.
