Past Due Accounts

For more information on past due accounts, please visit the collections section of the Business Office website.  

Returned Checks

A check, payment card, or an electronic transaction paid to the University that is returned as unpaid by the bank immediately creates a balance owed to the University. The Business Office is responsible for administrative matters related to the collection of all returned payments for students.

A $25 fee will be charged for all returned e-Checks due to non-sufficient funds, stop payment, frozen accounts and/or revoked authorizations. Returns of this nature will create a returned check receivable on the student account and tuition will be considered unpaid.

The University Cashier will redeposit returned checks in payment of tuition and fees for the fall and spring semester. A $25 returned item charge will be assessed for each returned item in accordance with state laws. Returns of this nature will create a returned check receivable on the student account and tuition will be considered unpaid.

Any returned check not collected may be turned over to a collection agency and the indebtedness reported to a credit bureau. Collection charges will be added to the debt. Transcripts and diplomas will be withheld pending payment.

Abuse of payment privileges may result in the restriction of subsequent payment for academic and other fees by accepting only certified checks, cashier’s checks or money orders.

Payment Card Charge Backs

Any payment card payment disputed, reversed, and returned to the University will be placed on the student’s account as a receivable.  Returned payment card payments are subject to a $25 returned item fee.  Payment card charge backs and returned item fees not collected may be turned over to a collection agency, and the indebtedness reported to a credit bureau. Collection charges will be added to the debt. Transcripts and diplomas will be withheld pending payment.

The withdrawal must be completed with proper signatures obtained and required forms turned into the Registrar’s Office for placement in the student’s permanent file.  Failure to withdraw properly will result in a non-prorated reassessment of charges to the student account.  Tuition, fees, room, and board will the prorated in accordance with the following schedule for a full University Withdrawal.

Prior to dropping a course or withdrawing from the University, students are encouraged to contact the Business Office and Financial Aid Office to ensure the student understands the financial impact of such action. 

Students receiving tuition assistance must report a course drop or university withdrawal to their assigned Campbell University Veterans Affairs Office/Representative or assigned Sponsor Billing Representative at their respective location.   

The university will comply fully with regulations associated with educational assistance under chapter 31, Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment, and chapter 33, Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits, and sponsor programs when evaluating invoices remitted and payments received from such programs.  The student will be responsible for any student account balance resulting from registration changes that result in a balance owed to the university.  Instances when a Service Member stops attending due to a military service obligation, the educational institution will work with the affected Service Member to identify solutions that will not result in student debt for the returned portion.

Return of Tuition Assistance: Military Tuition Assistance (TA) is awarded to a student under the assumption that the student will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded. When a student withdraws, the student may no longer be eligible for the full amount of TA funds originally awarded.  To comply with Department of Defense policy, Campbell University, Incorporated will return any unearned TA funds on a prorate basis through at least the 60% portion of the period for which the funds were provided. TA funds are earned proportionally during an enrollment period, with unearned funds returned based upon when a student stops attending. These funds are returned to the military Service branch.  The student will be responsible for any balance resulting from the return of tuition assistance to the sponsor.  Instances when a Service Member stops attending due to a military service obligation, the educational institution will work with the affected Service Member to identify solutions that will not result in student debt for the returned portion.

The Business Office is responsible for the reassessment of student account charges; however, it is the responsibility of the Financial Aid Office to ensure financial aid awards have been evaluated and reassessed accordingly. The Business Office reserves the right to hold refund of credit balances until the Financial Aid Office has evaluated and approved the release of funds awarded to students that withdraw from the University.

Students are responsible for unpaid balances resulting from a course drop or University Withdrawal.
