If you are a new student, you'll receive a link to your My Lakeland account a few weeks before your first semester starts.
If you're an online student, you'll be given access after you're accepted into the program. Then you choose and pay for the individual courses you want to take.
Second semester fees for full-time students are usually posted 2 to 3 weeks before that semester starts. If you're on a September to April schedule, your fees will show up in December.
