2022-23 Cost Sheets

St. Luke's College Reserves the Right to Revise Charges as Necessary and Without Notice.

Indirect costs should be considered as additional educational expenses. Such costs include transportation, housing, meals, supplies, child care if appropriate, and other miscellaneous expenses as needed. The College uses allowances based on average costs.

Payment Instructions & Due Dates

Payments may be made at or mailed to St. Luke's Fiscal Services Department, 2720 Stone Park Blvd, Sioux City, Iowa, 51104. Visa, Master Card and Discover credit cards are accepted for payment by stopping in or calling the Fiscal Services at 712-279-3518. Payments must be in US currency.

Payment is due in full by the first business day of the month following the month in which classes start unless a deferred payment plan has been approved by Fiscal Services. If a deferred payment plan has been approved, the minimum balance stated on the deferred payment agreement is due by the specified deadline. Contact Fiscal Services at (712) 279-3518 prior to the due date to arrange for a deferred payment plan.

If the total balance or minimum balance due is not paid by the first business day of the month following the month in which classes start, the bill is considered delinquent. A late fee of $20 per month will be assessed to all delinquent bills not paid by the first business day of the month and will be assessed monthly thereafter until the bill is paid in full. Students with delinquent bills will not be allowed to register for subsequent semesters nor will they receive grades, certificates, diplomas, official transcripts or other student services.

A $25 fee will be assessed per occurrence for any returned checks due to non sufficient funds.

Deferred Payment Plan

St. Luke's College offers a deferred payment plan for tuition, fees, and other authorized charges less financial aid and scholarships credited to an account. The deferred payment plan allows a student to make payments in three equal monthly installments. The student must obtain deferred payment approval from the St. Luke's Fiscal Services Department prior to the first business day of the month following the start of classes. There is a non-refundable deferred payment fee for processing the deferred payment plan of $15 per semester. Failure to make timely payments will result in revocation of the privilege to pay in installments, and the outstanding balance becomes due immediately and will be subject to a $20 late fee.

*Due to the short term of the Phlebotomy Program, a deferred payment plan is not available for this program.
