Returned Check Procedure

Checks (paper or electronic) returned for any reason will be handled in accordance with the state laws of Georgia and the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia policies. Returned items will be assessed a service fee of $30.00, or 5% of the face value of the check, whichever is greater, and a hold will be placed on the student’s record. The University will notify the student (maker) of the returned item via certified mail detailing the payment options available.

Tuition/fee payments returned as unsuccessful are subject to administrative processes such as cancellation and/or administrative withdrawal.

After three checks (paper or electronic) have been returned, the student’s (maker’s) privilege of writing checks to the University will be suspended.

All amounts owed to the University that are not cleared when due will be subject to reasonable collection fees which could include collection agency fees, attorney fees, court costs and other charges necessary for the collection of the debt.
