Loyola is environmentally conscience and no longer mails billing statements to enrolled students.  The student bill may be accessed by the student or the student's authorized user through their LORA (Loyola Online Records Access) Account Summary at Students are responsible for checking their official school email account for notices and messages about their student bill.

All students are expected to comply with Loyola's billing and payment policy by ensuring that all charges on the student account are covered by any one or a combination of: personal payment; anticipated financial aid credits; enrollment in one of the approved monthly budget plans; full sponsorship by a university approved third party payer; or another arrangement accepted by the university. Students who register for classes after the dates listed above are expected to make payment in full according to this policy at the time of registration.

Students are encouraged to make payment via our online payment system through their LORA Account Summary at can be made using e-Check or ACH, or by mailing a check or money order made payable to Loyola University New Orleans and addressed to the Office of the Bursar. Alternatively, for an additional convenience fee set by our e-commerce vendor, payment may be made by credit card; VISA, MasterCard, American Express and Discover are accepted. Students not wishing to have their campus-wide identification number placed on their payment should contact the Office of the Bursar for available alternative options. Cash transactions are discouraged. A charge of $30 will be assessed for each payment returned from the bank.

Accounts not paid by the posted due date and accounts with a delinquent monthly payment plan will be placed in past due status and subject to removal from enrollment. Students whose anticipated aid has not been received within the expected time frame will also be placed in past due status.  A late fee of $250 will be assessed on accounts in past due status. Student bills are available online through LORA (Loyola Online Records Access) Account Summary at  It is the student's responsibility to view and pay the bill, and if an adjustment should be made to the bill, the student should contact the Student Financial Services Center so that payment can be made by the deadline.

Students who have not met their financial obligations or made appropriate arrangements, have not officially completed registration and may be administratively withdrawn from enrollment and will not be allowed to register for subsequent semesters. Students whose checks are returned from the bank as unpaid also are subject to removal from enrollment. Loyola will withhold statements of honorable dismissal, transcripts, the diploma, and all other reports or materials until all indebtedness to the university has been paid or until satisfactory arrangements have been made with Student Financial Services.

Students are not allowed to enroll for subsequent semesters as long as prior financial indebtedness has not been satisfied. It is also the policy of Loyola to withhold transcripts, registration, and diplomas on any student who has defaulted on a Guaranteed Student Loan, Stafford Loan, Direct Loan, Perkins Loan, NDSL, Nursing, or other student loan. In the event that the delinquent account is placed with an outside agency for collection, all collection costs, attorney fees, and court costs incurred by the university will be passed on to the student.
