Notice on Returned Checks

A $30.00 returned check fee will be assessed to the student's account on all returned check payments.

Notice on Late Payments

Full payment of each semester's tuition & fees is due on or before the University-assigned tuition & fee due date, as listed in the Schedule of Classes and on the Academic Calendar. University policy requires that the student ensures all financial aid awards, third party billing, GSA/GTA contracts, tuition remission, personal contributions, and enrollment in the Panther Payment Plan is in order prior to the tuition & fee due date. Failure to do so may result in, but is not limited to, the accrual of finance charges, holds being placed on the student's account that will prevent future registration, online activity, transcript requests, receipt of diploma, and/or the termination of that student's registration for the current semester.
