Financing Options

If you have a balance due, you can choose one or more of the financing options listed below.  For example, you can borrow 50% through a Parent PLUS loan and either pay the rest in full or through a payment plan.  Note: Tuition, fees, room and board are charged on a semester basis. Preliminary bills showing actual charges are sent to students in July for the Fall semester and December for the Spring semester.  Academic Year amounts are provided below so that you can determine the amount of loan(s) you may want to borrow.
  Academic Year Per Semester

Option 1: Payment in Full

Option 2: Payment Plan

TLU offers payment plans for the convenience of our students and parents who need to split the balance due each semester over several months. Payment plans are calculated by semester. The monthly payment plan is subject to a $50 fee.
Fall/Spring Per Semester
First Payment Due August 1/January 2
Second Payment Due September 15/February 16
Third Payment Due October 15/March 16
Fourth Payment Due November 17/April 15

 

Option 3: Parent/Graduate PLUS Loan

Parent PLUS Loan - for parents of undergraduate students
Graduate PLUS Loan - for graduate students

The amounts shown here reflect the amount you need to borrow to pay the balance due. The amount to borrow is larger than the amount due as a fee of 4% is charged by the U.S. Department of Education on all PLUS loans. If you wish to borrow the cost of books, add an estimated $495 per semester to the total amount that you borrow. We recommend that you borrow for the amount needed for the academic year to avoid having to apply for the loan multiple times during the year

 

Option 4: Alternative Loans

The amounts shown here reflect the amount you need to borrow to pay the balance due. Before borrowing, review the fees and conditions of the loan. Based on the amount of fees that a lender charges up front, you may need to borrow more than the amount shown. If you wish to borrow for the cost of books, add an estimated $475 per semester to the total you borrow. We recommend that you borrow first from the Federal Direct Loan programs before borrowing from alternative loan programs. We also recommend that you borrow the amount needed for the academic year to avoid having to apply for the loan multiple times during the year.


*Loan amounts are reduced by loan origination fees of 1.072% for Federal Direct Loans and 4.288% for PLUS loans. These fees are subject to change based on congressional action.
