LATE OR NON-PAYMENT
Students who are granted loans are expected to assume responsibility for prompt repayment. The total amount of money available for loans to all students is limited. Failure to repay loans by the dates due may deprive other students of the use of loan funds.
Failure to repay loans by the due date (30 days) may result in the encumbrance of the student's academic record and the assessment of a late fee and a collection fee.If you cannot repay a loan by the due date, you must contact the University Collections Office using the contact information shown above. (Scroll down or click to view a copy of the Promissory Note for a full explanation of fees and other conditions of an Emergency Loan.)
LOSS OF ELIGIBILITY TO USE LOAN FUNDS
If you do not repay your loan by the due date, a hold will be placed on your academic record until the amount is paid in full, along with any charges for late fees, insufficient funds payments, or collection fees that may be incurred. (Scroll down or click to see a copy of the Promissory Note for a full explanation of fees and other conditions of an Emergency Loan.)
After a second encumbrance for failure to repay your loan by the due date, you will no longer be eligible to use the emergency loan funds.
Holds will prevent you from registering for classes and restrict your ability to conduct other university business.
