Why does my account reflect a balance due even though I have financial aid?
All accounts will reflect a balance due until the financial aid is received in the Business Office.
Why are two dates listed on the refund schedule?
The column on the left is the close of business date. On that date a credit must be reflected on your student account. If you are showing a credit at that time, a refund will be issued on the refund disbursement date that is listed in the column on the right.
Why did I not receive a refund on the listed date?
The schedule is for the full semester. Students are not guaranteed a refund on the dates. If you did not receive a refund, a credit was not reflected on your account at that time.
When will I receive a refund?
The staff at Limestone College cannot provide you a date if and/or when you will be getting a refund or the amount of a refund. An e-mail is sent to student’s e-mail provided by Limestone College providing the refund process and the refund schedule. This is sent at the beginning of each semester and periodically during the semester.
My account balance is reflecting a zero balance in the LC Portal but I was told I owe for the upcoming semester, why is that?

I cannot pay the balance in full, what are my options?
Traditional Day Students Only: Limestone College uses a third party company, Tuition Management Systems, for balances larger than $500.00. Tuition Management Systems charges no interest for the use of their plan. They do, however, charge an enrollment fee of $42.00 for the semester and $60.00 for the year and a late payment fee of $75.00. The payment plan begins July 25 for the Fall and December 25 for the Spring. If you arrive after August 1, you will be required to pay the payments for July and August along with the enrollment fee. If you arrive after January 1, you will be required to pay the payments for December and January along with the enrollment fee. This will allow ample time to process the payment and paperwork to submit to Tuition Management Systems.

The payment schedule is identical to Tuition Management System except there is no enrollment fee for this plan.
