How Tuition Statements are Processed

Linfield University does not have the ability to mail paper tuition bills or monthly statements. Semester Tuition bills and monthly statement notifications are sent electronically and are available online through our Student Account Portal, serviced by Nelnet Campus Commerce.

All semester tuition bills and monthly billing statements are only available online through your Student Account Portal You and any authorized users you have invited to review your billing on the student account portal will receive an e-mail notification when your monthly billing statement is available to view in your Student Account Portal. The tuition statement details any account activity on your student tuition account and any balance due. We ask that you review these statements to confirm that payments, scholarships, and loans are accurately reflected on your student account. In addition, please be sure to read important messages on the statement for updated information.

When Tuition Bills are Processed

Tuition statements are generated once a month by the Student Accounts Office and uploaded to your Student Account Portal. Semester statements are processed as indicated in the table below. If you have a balance due, a statement will be generated for you and an email will be sent once it is available to view and print online via your Student Account Center.

Any parent (authorized user) you have added will also receive the email notifications so they are up to date with information of when your bill is due.

Explanation of your Tuition Statement

Tuition statements will provide detail of the activity on your student account and the current balance due.  We ask that you review these statements to confirm that payments, scholarships, and loans are accurately reflected on your student account.


Charges include any previous balance that was not satisfied, tuition and fees for the current semester’s registration.  Recent changes to registration, housing or meal plans after the date of the invoice may not be reflected.


Payments reflect any payments received, adjustments to your charges (room/board, etc.) and including financial aid applied as of the statement date.

Estimated Financial Aid

Estimated Financial Aid reflects any estimated financial aid that is to be applied to the account.  This aid will be accounted for when setting up a payment plan, even if the aid has not yet been disbursed.  

Total Balance

The total in the far-right column indicates the balance due or anticipated credit refund as of the statement date. A minus sign (-) before the amount due indicates a credit balance, indicating you will potentially have a credit balance due back to you from financial aid funds.

Financial Aid Recipients

Financial aid recipients who have questions about the status of pending financial aid items should contact Financial Aid Office.  Financial aid recipients have the right to reject or request a reduction in some or all aid funds awarded to them, even if that aid has been disbursed to their student account.  To do this, students must notify the Financial Aid Office in writing within 14 days of disbursement.

Cancellation of aid funds may result in an unpaid account with Linfield University unless the amount due is paid by the tuition due date for the current semester. An unpaid balance on the student's account may prevent future registration and/or the ability to obtain transcripts and/or the student's diploma, so the Student Financial Services Office highly recommends that students contact their office to discuss all of the possible ramifications before taking this action.
