TouchNet Installment Payment Plan Information

The Lone Star College offers online installment payment plans only through Lone Star College myLoneStar. Installment payment plans are a convenient way to budget and pay tuition and fees. Enrolling in an installment payment plan online offers convenience and flexibility:

  • Enroll in a tuition and fees payment plan online excluding mini-mester classes and Summer semester classes
  • View a list of tuition and fee charges for the plan on your online budget worksheet
  • Make a payment online
  • Schedule automatic installment payments using a credit card, checking or savings account
  • Receive email reminders about upcoming payments
  • Receive email notifications as your plan adjusts for changes in enrollment
  • Set up Authorized users to view payment information and make payments
  • To enroll in an installment payment plan go to the Lone Star College Payment Plan Management System

To make use of the online payment plan, you must:

  • Be enrolled in credit academic classes
  • Have a U.S. checking account, savings account, debit card or valid credit card (Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover)
  • Have an e-mail address
  • Have access to Lone Star College myLoneStar from any college webpage
  • Know your student id number (available in myLoneStar)
  • Pay a $20 Payment Plan Administration Fee plus 40% of total tuition and fees at time of enrollment.

Installments will be drawn from the same account used to pay the initial deposit. If you do not want installments drawn from this account, you must change your saved payment method through myLoneStar. Make sure to delete your original method of payment after entering a new one. Any changes to payment methods should be made 24 hours prior to the installment due date.  Please ensure funds are available in your account on the installment due date to prevent being charged additional fees.

Installment Payment Plan Fees

  • Payment Plan Administration Fee - $20.00 (non-refundable)
  • Returned Check Fee - $30.00 + tax, if applicable (includes ACH electronic check transactions)
  • Late Payment Fee - $25.00 per past due payment

Schedule Changes

As a student adds and drops classes, the payment balance and any installments not yet due will be adjusted within 24 hours of the add/drop activity. Students are only allowed to enroll in one payment plan per semester.

To prevent a scheduled payment from occuring, the saved payment method must be deleted from your account. Please contact student-financials@lonestar.edu to remove any saved payment methods. Be sure to provide your student ID and full name.

Collection Costs

If obligations are not paid in full upon notification by the college, these debts may be referred to an outside collection agency and to appropriate credit bureaus. Resulting collection costs will be added to the original debt and the student must pay these costs, as well as attorney’s fees, if applicable. Furthermore, all unpaid obligations will result in a hold on student records, diplomas, transcripts and future registration activity.
