If payment is not received by the due date, you may be subject to late fees, course cancellations, as well as having a hold placed on your account. All unpaid accounts are forwarded to 3rd party collection agencies for further collections activities.
Please note: If your check payment is returned for non-sufficient funds to our bank for any reason, you will be charged a $30.00 returned check fee. If you have 3 or more NSF check payments your ability to pay by check will be revoked.
