Consequences of Late/Non-Payment

Payment and Collection of Tuition, Fees and Other Related Obligations

It is the student's responsibility to make certain payment is made in full and funds are received by the payment due date.

Students receiving financial aid, including scholarships, grants, loans and third-party payment arrangements, are responsible for any additional amount owed as the result from changes in financial aid awards.

Non-Sufficient Funds

A fee will be assessed to students whose check, E-check or credit card charge for registration does not clear the bank when presented.

An invoice will be issued for the check/charge amount and fees assessed. Failure to immediately resolve the invoice will result in University actions involving unpaid accounts.

University Actions Involving Unpaid Accounts

  1. Course registrations for students who have not made payment in full by the payment due date may be canceled.
  2. Course registrations may be canceled by the University up to the end of the fifth (5th) week of classes for students with unpaid tuition and fee accounts including Undergraduate Payment Plan or Graduate Payment Plan delinquency

  1. Students with unpaid accounts (tuition, fees, on-campus housing, and all other financial obligations) may be prohibited from enrolling in subsequent semesters.
  2. Advance registrations may be canceled for those students who incur an obligation subsequent to the advance registration period.
  3. Additionally, students with unpaid accounts are prohibited from receiving their University transcript and may be denied other University services.
  4. If a student is registered for classes and has any pending financial aid on their account, the student must follow through on all aid requirements for it to be posted to their account. Failure to do so will cause the pending aid to be removed at a later date and will result in a balance due.  If a student does not want to utilize the pending aid on their account they must cancel the financial aid and make any required student account payments.
  5. The student is required to withdraw from any class they do not plan to attend prior to the posted withdrawal deadlines.  Failure to do so may result in an F grade on their transcripts and a balance due to the University. 

  • Delinquent accounts will be assigned to debt collection agencies. Collection agencies are authorized by the University to collect unpaid accounts in accordance with the Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. The University also in some circumstances pursues legal action to secure a court-ordered judgment as a means of collecting unpaid accounts.
