At LSU, we work to make billing as transparent as possible. Here is some information to help you navigate fees, aid and payments at LSU.
Costs & Financial Aid
Current LSU students are encouraged to submit the FAFSA each year after October 1 to apply for financial aid and ensure eligibility for existing financial aid awards.
Current students can apply for scholarships through their myLSU account by keeping their scholarship application up to date. Students can also reach out to their senior college for additional scholarship opportunities.
Some students will receive an on-campus job through their financial aid package such as Work Study or Chancellors Aid. There are many areas on campus that hire students outside of these placements. Students should check with areas on campus they would like to work such as department offices and larger facilities such as Residential Life, Information Technology Services, University Recreation, LSU Auxiliary Services, LSU Libraries, and LSU Athletics.

Fee Bill & Payments
The Office of Bursar Operations (Bursar) creates an electronic fee bill for each student that must be paid in order for that student to enroll for the upcoming semester.
What does the fee bill include?
Student expenses, other than campus fees and nonresident fees, will vary with the individual. The General Catalog offers a complete overview of Fees and Expenses with descriptions. The Office of Budget and Planning also maintains a list of Fee Schedules.
When are the fee bills sent?
Students are notified by email each semester by the Bursar when fee bills are available on PAWS or myLSU. All fees and other University charges are due by the date indicated on the online fee bill. This process usually takes place about one month prior to each semester.
