Billing and Refunds

Billing and Refunds

Billing statement reminders are emailed on or about the 15th of every month. All students with a balance greater than $3.00 will receive a monthly eBill that can be viewed by clicking the link on the reminder email or by logging into your eLion account. Payments are due prior to the start of a semester/term unless specifically deferred by Tuition Assistance, Tuition Remission, or authorized payment option. Students should be financially prepared to meet any non-University expenses at the start of the term. Timely payments avoid late fee charges and/or financial holds on students' accounts. Late fees are assessed at 1% monthly (12% annually) beginning 60 days after the start of the semester/term. Unpaid balances at the end of the semester/term may be subject to third-party collections.

International Students


The W-8BEN is used to confirm that a vendor is a foreign individual and must be provided even if the individual is not claiming a tax treaty reduction or exemption from withholding. All foreign individuals, other than those whose payments from Saint Leo University are covered by a Form 8233, who are receiving payment must provide a W-8BEN even if no EIN, ITIN or SSN exists.

A valid W-8BEN must be provided before payment is issued by Saint Leo University. A Form W-8BEN is valid for the calendar year in which it was signed, as well as the three succeeding calendar years, unless a change in circumstances makes the information provided on the form W-8BEN inaccurate. For example, a Form W-8BEN signed on September 30, 2021, remains valid through December 31, 2024.  Timeframe of validity can vary and is defined by the tax treaty specific to the individual’s country of residence.

Financial Aid Refunds

When students receive more financial aid than their university charges, the extra funds are paid to the student as a refund. Financial aid, including loans, will be used first to pay student account charges. Within 14 days of disbursement, a refund will be issued only if there is a credit after charges are paid.

Saint Leo University delivers your refund with BankMobile Disbursements, a technology solution, powered by BMTX, Inc. Visit this link for more information:
