Failure to Pay your Bill on Time, Graduates

Hold Policy

Students with outstanding balances greater than $10 on their fee bills will have a “Bursar hold” placed on their accounts. This hold prevents students from accessing services such as class registration, moving into residence halls, recreation services, library services, parking services, transcripts and other important services.

All students are billed by e-mail notification only. Failing to receive an e-mail bill notification does not absolve the student of the responsibility of payment by the due date. Students have 24/7 access to view any term fee bill through accessing their student account.

Administrative holds will be placed on accounts with balances of $300.00 or greater, after the due date has passed. The Administrative Hold can only be removed by our Bursar; it will not automatically lift once payment is submitted.  If your balance is paid with a personal payment (i.e. E-Check, personal check) our office waits 7 business days to ensure that the payment clears before removing the hold.  Alternatively, if you choose to pay with cash, bank check, credit card, wire transfer, or loan, there is no waiting period - we can remove the hold during our daily review.

Late Fee Policy

A late payment fee of $150 is payable by all graduate students whose tuition and fees are not paid in full on the published fee bill due date. If after Day 10 of the semester, your bill remains unpaid you will be assessed a second $150 late fee. Checks returned by the bank for any reason are considered a late payment. Additionally, students will have services such as class registration denied if all fees have not been paid by the due date. Students enrolled in the payment plan will receive a $50 late fee for each late installment.

**Please note: If you enroll in courses after the established due date- payments are due within ten (10) calendar days.

Return Check Policy

Checks returned by the bank for any reason will be removed from the account and late fees will apply. There is a $25 charge for any returned check.

A returned check may result in disruption of student services.
