Delinquent Financial Accounts
Students with outstanding financial obligations may be refused all University services until such obligations are paid. Services which may be denied include the following: registration, transcripts, grades, transfer of credit, graduation, and activity card benefits.
In the event collection efforts become necessary, USU may refer a past due account to an outside collection agency. All referred accounts are subject to a collection fee, not to exceed 50 percent of the amount owed, plus all court costs and reasonable attorney fees. The collection agency and/or USU may report delinquent accounts to a credit-reporting agency.
If any payment made to the University is unauthorized, incomplete, or received after the due date, registration fees will be considered as unpaid, and the student will not be officially registered.
All tuition and fees should be paid in full by the posted due dates. Any unpaid tuition and fees may be assessed a late fee of $20 per month or one percent per month (12 percent per annum), whichever is greater. Students with an outstanding balance may be subject to removal from classes for nonpayment.
Personal checks returned by the bank for any reason are automatically sent to a collection agency and will be subject to a service charge. At the discretion of the Controllers Office, this may result in the withholding of registration credit or immediate cancellation of the student's classes. USU reserves the right to refuse personal checks for any transaction. Check cashing privileges and use of other University services using personal checks may be suspended for any individual who has a check returned to the University.
