Payment Options

There are multiple ways to pay for your college tuition. Here is a list of options available to you.

Online by credit card or e-check

You may pay in full online by logging into LOIS and navigating to the “Student” section then select “Pay Online via TouchNet Student Account Suite.”

Cash

Cash payments can be made in person at the Cashier’s Office on any campus.

Tuition Installment Plan

We understand that you may be unable to pay your entire tuition balance by the fee payment deadline for the semester. That’s why we have the Tuition Installment Plan (TIP) available for you.

Check or Money Order

Payments can be made by check or money order by bringing the payment to the Cashier’s Office on any campus or by mail.

Especially when paying by mail, be sure the student’s full name and LSSC ID (X-ID) are written on the check/money order. And take care to ensure that the payment will reach LSSC prior to the appropriate payment deadline.

Mail payments to:
Lake-Sumter State College
Attention: Cashier’s Office
9501 U.S. Highway 441
Leesburg, FL 34788


Credit Card Payment Policy

A convenience fee (minimum $3.00) will apply to all payments made by credit card for LSSC tuition, fees, and other account charges, including application fees.

Credit card payments are only processed through LSSC Self Service (LOIS). Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express will be accepted.

Cardholders will be notified of the convenience fee at the time of payment and be given the opportunity to opt out of the transaction and choose another payment option. In no case may TouchNet PayPath charge the fee without disclosure to the cardholder prior to finalizing payment. As you, the student, go through the TouchNet PayPath process, you will be notified several times, a total of three, that the convienience fee will be charged.

Students can avoid paying the convenience fee by paying on LOIS with an e-check (ACH bank transfer from checking or savings account).


Fee Drop

Beginning Fall 2019, Lake-Sumter State College will no longer have a ‘final’ drop for non-payment. This means that students who are registered in a course that they do not wish to attend will not be removed from the course due to non-payment, following the add/drop deadline. Students are responsible for dropping themselves from any course they do not wish to attend by the published drop deadline. If they do not, they will be held financially responsible for the full cost of their registered courses.

Lake-Sumter State College will continue to drop students for non-payment before registration ends. If their balance is not paid in full, students are at risk of being removed from ALL of their registered courses and will need to re-register, if seats are available. Please see below for a list of upcoming drop dates:
