Tuition and fees
Life University is a private institution and has the same tuition for all students per program, whether they have in-state or out-of-state residency. The following amounts are effective Summer 2018.
*Tuition per year is based on a three-quarter academic year for both Undergraduate and Graduate degree programs.
**Tuition per standard program length is based on four years needed for completion for Undergraduate degree programs and two years needed for completion for Graduate degree programs. Tuition per standard program length for the Doctor of Chiropractic program is more precise, as it is based on the number of credit hours needed to complete the degree (342). Lengths of completion for all LU programs can vary, depending on a student’s course load per quarter/year.

LU MEAL PLANS
Life University requires ALL new freshmen and residents of The New Commons to purchase a meal plan. All students have the option to purchase any of the meal plans below. Meal plans are loaded onto your Eagle card, which is the official ID of Life University students, faculty and staff.

|Cost Per Meal||$6.84||$7.08||$7.20||$7.50||$8.00|
Meal Plans swipes are loaded at the start of each quarter, then “reset” at the end, following a “use ‘em or lose ‘em” scenario. Non-mandatory meal plans can be purchased through Eagle Card Services with a credit or debit card.
eBucks are declining balance funds loaded on your Eagle Card as a part of the Commons 120 and Eagle 190 meal plans. The unused balance rolls over each quarter and can be used like a debit card to make meal/snack purchases to fill in the gaps of the meal plan swipes.
The Eagle Card is more than just an ID card – it provides access to a variety of essential functions, such as secure entry to residence halls and rooms, library and Wellness Center. It is also used as payment for meal plans, eBucks, flexBucks and printing services (ePrint).
ePrint funds are loaded quarterly for printing/copying at designated campus printers. Students receive a nontransferable, non-refundable credit of $7.50 each quarter that accumulates while enrolled at the University. The credit is not applied to Distance Learning Students.
flexBucks are Eagle Card funds you load yourself using a credit or debit card. The benefit of using flexBucks, is that you buy at a 10% added value rate (i.e. you buy $100 of flexBucks and $110 is loaded on your card). flexBucks can be used at all campus eateries.
