Student Accounts

The Student Accounts Office provides accounts receivable services for students at Life University. Our primary objectives are ensuring accurate billing, living expense distribution, and tuition and fee record keeping.

TUITION PAYMENT

Payment for tuition and fees can be accomplished in any of the following ways:

All other payments must be made online via Web Advisor.


PAY YOUR TUITION ONLINE

The Student Accounts Department has implemented an online billing site which offers students and parents REAL TIME functionality. You can view your most recent up-to-date account activity, make payments, store payment methods, and select parents as authorized users. Payments will no longer be accepted via phone or in person at the Student Advocacy Center. Your time is valuable, and we encourage that all payments be made online.

 Follow these simple steps to pay your tuition online:

  • Once in Web Advisor, click TouchNet Sign On (Under Financial Information).
  • Click on “Click here to continue”
  • Click make a payment

Tuition payment is due in full upon registration, and any outstanding balance is due by the second Friday of each academic quarter. The actual dates for each quarter can be found in the Academic Quarterly and they are also listed at the Student Advocacy Center.


NON-PAYMENT OF TUITION AND FEES

Life University reserves the right, at any time during the quarter, to disenroll any student from classes for failure to pay tuition and fees. A Student Accounts hold will be placed on the record of any student who has an outstanding financial obligation to the University. The student will not be permitted to register for further course work or receive (or have forwarded to external third parties) any transcripts until the obligation is settled.

Also, students will be assessed a 25% disenrollment charge based upon the remaining unpaid tuition incurred in the disenrolled quarter.


MANDATORY DIRECT DEPOSIT

Life University requires all students to set up direct deposit from their checking account. All financial aid living expense monies (financial aid that exceeds coverage of tuition and fees) are processed on Tuesday and Thursday each week. These living expense monies will be deposited directly into your bank account within 48 hours of processing.

Direct Deposit Form  |  Please fill out this form, attach a voided check (with your name on it) and then return it to the Student Accounts Office at the Student Advocacy Center. If you do not have checks, please provide us with official checking account information. Savings accounts and starter checks will not be accepted.

THIRD-PARTY BILLING

In order to establish a billing contract with any third party company or organization for payment of student tuition and fees, Life University requires the following:

  • A letter or voucher on company/organization letterhead, including the original signature of an official authorized to obligate payment by the company/organization to Life University. This letter should be addressed to: Student Accounts Office, 1269 Barclay Circle, Marietta, Georgia 30060.
  • An itemized list of the type(s) of fees and charges for which the company will be responsible (i.e. tuition and fees). Student Accounts can not invoice to books and supplies.
  • An indication of the time period (i.e. Spring Quarter 2009) during which the company/organization will sponsor the student. The voucher will only be valid for that time period unless otherwise noted.
  • The student’s full name and social security number.
  • The name, billing address and telephone number of the contact person.

A detailed invoice will be mailed to the third-party billing address approximately three to four weeks after classes begin. Payment is due immediately upon receipt of the invoice and cannot be contingent upon grades or completion of courses. If payment is not received from the third-party within 30 days of the due date, the student will be responsible for payment.


BALANCE AFTER WITHDRAWAL

If you withdraw from Life University during the middle of a quarter and are receiving federal or state financial aid, you may be required to repay some of the unearned financial aid based upon the return of Title IV funds calculation. You will be notified of any balance remaining on your student account. Contact Student Accounts or visit the Student Advocacy Center to make arrangements to pay any balance due.

If payment is not made within 30-60 days after withdrawal, your account will be turned over to a collection agency. If you plan to reenroll at Life University, your balance must be paid in full before registering for classes.
