Students are responsible for paying charges by the payment due date. Students not paying by the due date may be dropped from their classes. Go to myLoneStar to make a payment or set up a payment plan.

  • Fall 2021 Payment Due Date - August 21st - must pay by 11:00 PM
  • Winter-Mini 2021 Payment Due Date - December 10th - must pay by 7:00 PM
  • Spring 2022 Payment Due Date - January 8th - must pay by 11:00 PM

Students may continue to register after the payment due date of a semester before the start of classes. However, students must pay for their classes or enroll in a payment plan the same day to avoid being dropped. Payment plans are available for Fall and Spring terms.

Payment Options

 Students are encouraged to pay online prior to the term due date to prevent their courses from being dropped and to avoid long lines at the payment counters. If you are unable to pay online, or unable to pay in-person you may mail a money order for the exact amount of your balance to: 5000 Research Forest Drive, The Woodlands, TX 77381. Please put "Attention to: Student Financials". To ensure you are not dropped while your payment is in route, you can scan and email a copy of your money order to your campus Business Office. Be sure to include your name, student ID and contact information. Business Office email addresses can be found here.

Current students can pay on-line via myLoneStar. You can also pay at the business office window with cash, check, or debit card. Credit/Debit Card payments will not be accepted by telephone.  Payments via wire transfer is also available for international students through Flywire.

Third Party Sponsored Billing

Sponsored Billing is available for students whose employer, or other organization, has agreed to pay student account charges on behalf of the student to Lone Star College (LSC) . Third Party Sponsors are billed after the Withdrawal date ("W" Day) of the main terms (Fall, Spring, Summer). Payment is due 30 days from the invoice date. Any charges not paid by the Sponsor will be the responsibility of the student. Students must fill out a Third Party Agreement form and provide a letter from their Sponsor on company letterhead stating the payment terms. Please contact your campus Business Office for more details.

Paper bills are no longer mailed. When there is activity on your student account that generates charges, you will receive an email notifying you to login to your myLoneStar student center to view and pay the amount due on your account. Contact your Business Office if you need a paper copy of your bill.


  • All refunds are deposited electronically or applied back to the credit card that was used to make payment(s) on the account. If you do not have a bank account with direct deposit set up you will receive a refund by check, and your refund will be delayed up to 2 weeks. You can setup a refund profile to receive funds electronically through your myLoneStar account.

  • Refunds for amounts paid with a credit card will be refunded back to that same credit card. This applies to payments made with a pre-paid credit card or a gift card.

Collection Agency Fees

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. Students are responsible for paying all collection fee charges, not to exceed 30% of the total amount due on the account, and any possible litigation costs or attorney's fees.

Furthermore, all unpaid obligations will result in a hold on student records, diplomas, transcripts and future registration activity. For student account related issues contact the business office at any Lone Star College campus.

LSC Financial Responsibility Agreement

When a student enrolls in classes at Lone Star College for the first time the following verbiage related to their financial responsibility will appear. Each student must agree to these terms before enrollment is completed. These responsibilities remain in effect as long as the student is enrolled or has an outstanding balance due.

Exemptions and Waivers

Exemptions are a type of financial assistance allowing some Texas residents to attend a public college or university in Texas without paying tuition or, in some cases, tuition and fees. All documentation required to receive a state exemption or waiver, including Lone Star College's State Exemption and Waiver Acknowledgement Form, should be submitted one week prior to classes starting. Exemptions and waivers are applied up to the Official Day of Record of a term. They cannot be applied to students' accounts retroactively.
