ESTIMATED Balance Needed for Year $

If you can pay your balance needed for the year within one year, your best option is the LSSU Monthly Payment Plan - The University is offering a monthly payment plan for educational expenses. The plan consists of a $120.00 service fee for the year ($60 per semester).

If you wish to borrow money with extended payment terms, the best option would be the Federal Parent Plus Loan for dependent students.

Other options for alternative loans are available.
