Billing Information for the Summer Sessions
Return to billing and payment
The Student Accounts Office generates and issues bills to students for each term they are enrolled at Lock Haven University. Bills include charges for tuition and fees, housing, and meal plans. Tuition and fees are required for all credits earned, including internships, courses held abroad, and self-study credits. These mandatory fees are required to support academic and ancillary functions, the University, and our students.
Each summer session is billed separately. Therefore, a student registered for each summer session would receive three bills. Although new bills will be sent for each session, please note that any remaining balance from the first summer session will be reflected on a subsequent summer session bill.
Students can view important billing dates, including last date to drop a course and receive a refund by clicking here.

How To View Your Bill:
Students can view their bill in real time by logging into the myHaven portal. After logging into the system, click on the “Student Finances” tab at the top of the page followed by the “Pay Bill or Add Flex” on the left side menu bar. Students can also request a new bill by visiting the Students Accounts Office in 121 Russell Hall.
It is the student’s responsibility to check their student account via the myHaven portal to view any changes to their charges for the semester, including housing and meal plan changes.
Payment is expected to be received by the due date printed on the bill. Please note that if your bill states “Due Upon Receipt”, this means that the bill is currently due and should be paid immediately. Charges for any changes made after the semester begins are due immediately.
Because students are able to view their bill in real time through the myHaven portal, the failure to receive a bill in the mail does not negate the obligation to pay, nor does it extend the due date.
Lock Haven University makes every effort to work with students by offering several options to pay their bill. Students can pay their student bill online, or mail their payment to the Student Accounts Office. Unfortunately, there are no payment plans available for any of the summer sessions.
Students can make an online payment through the myHaven portal. After logging into the system, click on the “Student Finances” tab at the top of the page followed by the “Pay Bill or Add Flex” link on the left side menu bar. Current accepted forms of online payment include: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and electronic check (eCheck). Please note that there is a convenience fee charged for credit card payments. There is no charge for an eCheck payment.
Sending Your Payment to the Student Accounts Office:
Students can send their check or money order to the Student Accounts Office by using the enclosed envelope provided with the student bill. Please include the bill stub with your payment to ensure accurate processing.
Please send payment along with any other correspondence (including scholarship information) to the following address:
Lock Haven University
121 Russell Hall
Lock Haven, PA 17745
Students can also bring their cash, check, or money order to the Student Accounts Office located at 121 Russell Hall.
Any financial aid awarded will be listed on the student bill. Please review your bill promptly and contact the Financial Aid Office with any questions or concerns you have regarding the financial aid listed.
If your financial aid is greater than the charges listed on the bill, you will see a negative number in the “Amount Due” section of the bill. This is the amount of your expected refund. Refunds are processed on a weekly basis after the semester begins. For additional information regarding the refund process, please click here.
Holds / Late Fee Policies:
Students who have not paid their bill by the due date may be subjected to a financial hold or late fee being placed on their account. The Student Accounts Office lists the dates holds and late fees are added to student accounts well in advance. Please click here for the dates for the current summer sessions.
Financial Holds – Financial holds disallow the processing of transcripts and / or diplomas as well as any registration changes for the subsequent semesters. It is University policy to place a financial hold on any student account with a balance due past the specified date. This hold will not be lifted until the student account is paid in full.
Late Fees – A $50 late fee is added to the student account for each session that is past due. Therefore, if a student is late for two summer sessions (s)he will receive two $50 late fee charges. If a student feels they should not have been charged the late fee, there is a Late Fee Appeal Policy. Please refer to the Student Accounts Policies Page for information regarding that policy.
It is very important to pay your student bill in a timely manner. In addition to the above two policies, any Fall courses the student is scheduled for may be dropped due to lack of payment.
A charge of $30 will be assessed to the student account for payments returned by the bank due to insufficient funds and / or incorrect bank account information entered when making an online payment. Please be sure that the information you enter is correct as we are unable to stop a payment from processing once the information has been submitted.

Statements of the student’s account are sent on a monthly basis. It is the responsibility of the student to obtain a bill and to satisfy the balance on the account. Students can obtain a copy of their bill through the myHaven portal, or by contacting the Student Accounts Office.
Students who have unpaid student bills after the semester / session ends will be placed into collections with possible reporting to the credit bureau.
