Penalties for Late Payments

Please note that there will be penalties if your Student Account becomes delinquent. An account becomes delinquent when it is not paid in full by the due date (the 12th day of the month). The penalties for students with delinquent accounts are listed below:

  • Each month a student's account is delinquent, the student will be charged a $20.00 late payment fee.
  • A student with a delinquent account will have a "HOLD" placed on their account. A hold means that the student will not be able to receive copies of their transcript, will not be able to register for courses or change their course schedule, and will not be able to graduate or receive their diploma until their account has been paid in full.  
  • If you live in University Housing and you have a delinquent account, the eviction process will begin. This means that you will be removed from University Housing.
  • If you own a car and have received a parking ticket on campus, your car may be towed if you have a delinquent student account.
  • If you have a delinquent account, you will not be able to use your NCard or Telecommunications services.
  • If you have a delinquent account, you will be unable to access the University Recreation Center, unable to attend campus events or activities using your NCard, and unable to receive student discounts.
