Returned Checks

When the campus Business Office receives returned checks, it notifies students in writing. You must pay the amount of the check plus a check fee with cash or a cashier's check within the time limits prescribed by the notification letter you receive. (A returned check fee of $25 will be charged for each returned item except in case of bank error.) If the bank for any reason returns a check for tuition, the Business Office may submit the check to the Justice of the Peace for appropriate legal action and collection. The Office of the Provost may also implement disciplinary procedures. You may be dropped from courses if check(s) are returned. Additionally, you may be blocked from further enrollment until all costs are paid. Stopping payment on a check does not guarantee the student will be dropped from courses. A check on which payment has been stopped is treated as a returned check and is subject to the same $25 charge. It is the student's responsibility to drop or withdraw from classes.
