Subject line: Your Loyola E-Bill and Payment Options

Sent: December 7, 2022

We're so glad that you will be joining our campus community this spring! You can now access your electronic tuition bill (E-Bill) through your LORA Self-Service account. We will not be sending a printed bill through the mail, only this electronic bill.

Payment Deadline: December 15

All payments, financial aid, monthly payment plans, and parent loans must be in place by December 15. 

Make a Payment to your Student Account

  • As you enter the payment amounts for each term you will be provided a Payment Total in the bottom right of the screen. You can make payments to one or more terms.
  • Next, you will choose your account payment method using the “Method” drop down box. You will be able to pay with an electronic check from a checking or savings account or by credit card. When you make your initial payment, you will be given the opportunity to save your payment method for your convenience.

Health Insurance Requirement

All full-time undergraduate students will be automatically enrolled in our Student Health Insurance Plan for the 2022 – 2023 academic year. Premiums for the Spring 2023 term will appear on your tuition statement. If you have comparable, existing insurance through a different provider for the academic year, you may be eligible to waive coverage and remove this charge from your bill. We offer a different plan for domestic vs. international students to best meet the needs of all students. Please visit our Student Health Insurance page to see plan details, costs, and instructions for waiving coverage.
