Student's Total Cost of Attendance

Your aid offer outlines your financial aid eligibility and provides you with the out-of pocket-cost for the academic year. In addition to billable charges, other estimated expenses are included in a student's total cost of attendance for the 2020-21 year. Below are each of LVC's student budgets based on your housing status.

*includes an estimated charge of $1,400 for non-athletes required for health insurance. Athletes will be charged $1,663 (international students only).

  • Books and supplies, transportation, personal expenses, and average loan fees* will not appear on the bill, but these estimates will be included in the total cost of attendance in determining your financial aid eligibility. Actual amounts of these expenses will depend on the coursework you take, your personal spending habits, and the distance between LVC and your home.

  • Books and supplies purchased at the College Store can be charged to the student account. Financial aid can be used to cover these costs.

  • While graduate tuition rates are different than those listed in the chart above, the charges and allowances for room, board, books, personal, and transportation expenses for off-campus, commuters, and international students are the same for graduate students. Graduate tuition rates are found on the Tuition & Expenses page. Limited residential housing is available for graduate students. Please contact Residential Life for more information.

  • Loan Fees—This is an average amount of the 1.066% origination (upfront) fee charged to students who borrow the Federal Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized Loan. It is deducted at the time of disbursement. An average fee is included in the cost of attendance to allow the borrower to receive/borrow other sources of aid to help offset this cost. The average amount for graduate student loan fees is $212/academic year.

  • While you will be billed for each of the two semesters separately (July and November respectively), we advise that your plan for your entire academic year expenses at one time.

  • Some or all instruction for all or part of an Academic Year may be delivered remotely or in hybrid format. Tuition and the comprehensive fee have been set regardless of the method of instruction and will not be refunded in the event instruction occurs remotely or in hybrid format for any part of an Academic Year.
  • The value of a Lebanon Valley College education and degree, whether in-person or remote, continues to exceed tuition. Moreover, our main educational costs are continuing, as the services they provide are continuing; our infrastructure costs are continuing; and we are incurring additional costs for online education and actions we are taking to respond to the pandemic. As such, Lebanon Valley College does not refund tuition and comprehensive fee because of changes to the method of delivery of instruction.
  • Student housing, meal plans, and dining options may have to be modified before and/or during the semester to address health and safety concerns and/or to comply with risk mitigation strategies.  Students accept full financial responsibility for housing and meal plan charges, regardless of any such changes. In the event that the College is unable to provide housing or meals during a portion of the semester due to the effects of COVID-19 or other circumstances beyond the College’s reasonable control, the College will determine the amount of any housing or meal plan charges to be refunded.

    Students and families who are in financial distress due to the coronavirus pandemic are encouraged to reach out for help. Please contact the Financial Aid Office at finaid@lvc.edu for more information.
