Flex Pay

All students, including those on Financial Aid, should sign up for Flex Pay. The only exceptions are:

  • Students who pay in full at the time of registration.
  • Students who are funded through Kinexus
  • Students who have made arrangements with the College's Financial Services Office through their employer.
  • Students that have more aid than the total tuition and fees.

Flex Pay is a low-cost way to spread your tuition and fee payments out over time.

  • Payments are automatically deducted from your checking account or your MasterCard, Discover Card, American Express, or Visa.
  • Flex Pay is not a loan program so you won’t have interest or finance charges, and there is no credit check.
  • There is a $25-per-semester, non-refundable enrollment fee.
  • A small convenience fee is charged for credit card payments.
  • Payments are processed on the 5th of each month and continue until the balance is paid in full.
  • There is a $30 fee if a payment is returned for insufficient funds.
  • You must sign up each semester that you want to use the program.
  • Certain banks will not allow payments to be made from a savings account. Please check with your financial institution prior to registering for Flex Pay if you wish to use your savings account.
  • NOTE: Students who have previously defaulted on the Flex Pay/FACTS/e-Cashier program are not eligible to participate.

If you are interested in the Flex Pay payment plan, call the LMC Business Office at (269) 927-8610 for more information.

Flex Pay Options

There are two Flex Pay options. Your financial aid status at the time you register for classes determines if a payment plan is required.

1. Flex Pay for those with or without financial aid.
If you do not pay in full at the time you register for classes, and you do not receive financial aid (including scholarships, grants and loans) or you have a balance greater than your financial aid, you will be placed into the traditional Flex Pay plan. The amount of the down payment you must make will be determined by the date you enroll in the program. The earlier you enroll, the smaller the down payment is.

2. Flex Pay – Pending Aid for Chapter 33 and VRAP veterans.
Flex Pay-Pending Aid is available for Chapter 33 and VRAP veterans only. Payments are deferred until after your VA payment is received.

Note: It can take 3 – 4 weeks from the time you submit the FAFSA until you receive your estimated financial aid award package from LMC. If you register for classes before receiving your estimated financial aid award letter from LMC, you will automatically be placed into the regular Flex Pay program and charged the $25 fee. Once you have been placed into the regular Flex Pay program, the $25 fee cannot be refunded.

If you wish to use Flex Pay, you must re-enroll each semester at the time of registration through e-Cashier. To access e-Cashier, log into Wavelink, then click on the "e-Cashier Payment Plan" link located in the "Billing" section.

3. Account information for the person responsible for payment.

  • By automatic withdrawal from your checking or savings account - have the bank name, telephone number, account number and bank routing number available.
