Payment Options

Standard Payment Plan
Lab tuition is billed in three installments, over the academic year. The University of Chicago Bursar’s Office will send EBill statements to your Billing Parents Contact email address and will include the payment due date. You may pay your tuition online at the Bursar’s Lab Tuition Gateway. The gateway requires payment for each student separately. You will be prompted for the Student Name, your phone number, the 8-digit Student Account ID number (found on your EBill statement).
Deferred Monthly Payment Plan
The Deferred Monthly Payment Plan allows participants to remit annual tuition in nine equal monthly installments over the course of each academic term. This plan carries a $75.00 annual enrollment fee.  $25 is  payable with the first installment of each academic term.

Enrollment in this plan is valid for only one year and those who wish to remain on the plan must re-enroll each year.  The 2019-20-Lab-School-Deferred-Monthly-Payment-Plan-Application must be submitted no later than July 15 to be effective for the upcoming academic year.  Monthly payments must be initiated each month using the payment site indicated on the monthly EBill.  Direct Debit is not a payment option with this plan.
