    Installment Plans

    Lewis and Clark Community College offers an Installment Plan option for qualifying credit students in Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters.

    If you are receiving Financial Aid for a portion of your tuition and fees, you may qualify for an Installment Plan for charges that are not covered by your Financial Aid package. Please call the Bursar’s Office to discuss your options. Students in this situation must set up their Installment Plan in person at the Godfrey campus.

    How To Qualify

    Students must be at least 18 years of age with a valid photo ID. Minor students may qualify for an Installment Plan co-signed by their legal guardian with a valid photo ID.

    Your qualifying*** tuition and fees must equal $500.00 or more. 

    ***To see if your class includes non-qualifying Digital Material charges, search for your section in Student Planner and click the link. The Section Details screen will list any additional fees specific to the course and section.

    Textbooks, Digital Material charges and classroom supplies may not be charged to the plan. You must pay Digital Material fees AFTER setting up your Installment Plan and making your first payment to avoid being dropped from classes.

    If a student is awarded Financial Aid after setting up an Installment Plan, the payments must still be made as scheduled until the funds are officially transmitted and applied to the student account.

    Failure to pay as scheduled may jeopardize your ability to create future installment arrangements.
