If a check is returned by the bank for any reason (insufficient funds, closed account, stop payment, etc.) the returned check, along with a returned check fee will be charged to the issuer's student account or to the account of the student on whose behalf the original check payment was presented. Failure to clear a tuition check may result in cancellation of classes.
The student will receive a notification letter regarding the returned check and associated charges. The letter will also include instructions to pay the returned check and service fee within 15 calendar days. Payment may be by cash, credit card, certified check or money order. Cash payments should be made in the bookstore on any campus.
If an account indicates a history of returned checks, the college may suspend or revoke a student’s check writing privileges. Returned checks that remain unpaid will be referred to the State Attorney’s Office.
