signing up for housing

once you've signed up for orientation and paid your enrollment fee, you can pay your housing fee. 

while the enrollment fee saves your place in lipscomb’s incoming class and allows you to register for new student orientation, the housing fee lets you reserve your dorm room. access your bison portal to pay this fee. 

the fees are as follows:

  • freshman enrollment fee: $260
  • transfer enrollment fee: $215
  • housing fee: $200

if a parent or other individual is helping pay your bill, add them as an authorized user on nelnet. being an authorized user on nelnet is the only way for parents to receive billing statements from the business office.

  • to add an authorized user, log into cns student portal > my finances > nelnet payment/plans > launch nelnet > add an authorized party.
