MBA Payment Options

Student Tuition Deferral
Students who intend to personally pay for MBA courses must now enroll in this payment plan online at webadvisor.lemoyne.edu and follow the step-by-step directions under "Enroll in a Payment Plan." The Student Tuition Deferral form will no longer be accepted to defer tuition. A $25 late fee will be assessed if tuition is not paid by the due date.

If a student must withdraw from a course, he or she must contact the MBA office and sign a Drop Form. The tuition refund policy, which is published on the current semester course schedule, will be followed.

Financial aid for the MBA student can take one of the following forms:

  1. Employer Remitted Tuition. Many local employers provide some sort of tuition remission. Requirements vary among employers for this benefit. For whatever amount an employer remits, Le Moyne will defer 100% of tuition to 45 days after a course grade has been issued to the student. If tuition is not paid by the due date, a $25 late fee will be assessed. Contact the MBA office for the Employer Tuition Deferral form, or download it here.
