Tuition Notes

12 or more credit hours per semester constitutes full-time undergraduate status and are charged at the full-time rate.

Alumni who have earned an LVC bachelor's degree qualify for a 25% discount on full-time undergraduate tuition charges.

Some or all instruction for all or part of Academic Year 2020-2021 may be delivered remotely or in a hybrid format. Tuition and mandatory fees have been set regardless of the method of instruction and will not be modified or refunded in the event instruction occurs remotely or via a hybrid model for any part of the 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.

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.

*Students registering for more than 17 credit hours during one semester will be assessed overload charges at $595 per credit hour above the 17 maximum. The 25% alumni discount does not apply to overload charges.

Overload Refund Policy: 100% refund will be given if the overload course is dropped within the add/drop period of the term.


Room and Board Notes

First-time resident students must select from a Gold or Silver meal plan level.

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.

**Annville students may use their flex dollars in LVC dining facilities. Room and Board will be prorated for the Fall 2020 semester due to the the early closure of residence halls and dining facilities beginning at the time of Thanksgiving break. Of the 110 days in the fall semester, 16 days will be spent online only and thus room and board costs will be reduced by 14.5% for the fall semester. For board, both the number of swipes and overall cost of the meal plans will be reduced. The flex dollar amounts won't be prorated. Any unused flex dollars will carryover to the spring semester.

Miscellaneous charges and deposits

  • A $100 admission deposit is held as a contingency deposit and is refunded upon graduation.
  • A $100 room deposit must be submitted to the Business Office by returning students (not required for the first year) on an annual basis to reserve campus housing for the upcoming academic year. This room deposit will be credited to your student account on July 1 as long as you return as a resident student. Students will be notified by Student Services of the deposit due date.
  • As a full-time student, you are allowed to charge college store purchases ($15.00 minimum purchase) to your student account. Cumulative monthly purchases are applied to your account at the end of each month.
  • Returned checks are subject to a $20 fee. The fee will be assessed for each returned check, including checks on which payment has been stopped. Check-writing privileges are suspended until the returned check and penalty are paid in full. If you do not render payment when requested, administrative action may be taken to place holds on future registration privileges and the release of transcripts. You may also face collection action for the unpaid amount. Check writing privileges will be revoked if a second check is returned.
  • Late Charges of $200 per semester are added to the student account if payment in full (less approved financial aid) is not received by the stated due date. The late fee will not be waived.
  • Other miscellaneous charges may be applied to your student account throughout the academic year. These charges may include but are not limited to, vehicle registration, parking fines, private music lessons, library fines, and damage and disciplinary assessments. If you have questions regarding any one of these charges, please contact the originating department. Please contact the Business Office if you need assistance in determining the originating department.
