Financial Obligations and Payments
Failure to pay in full or to make other payment arrangements by the published fee payment deadline for each term may result in cancellation of your class schedule. UAS reserves the right to withhold final grades, transcripts, diplomas, or other services from students who have not fulfilled all their financial obligations to the institution. Students that owe a balance for housing may be served with eviction notice and forfeit their security deposit. Other than tuition and fees, which are due according each semester's payment schedule, any charges owed to the university are due within 30 days.
Any charges unpaid at the end of the previous semester are due and must be paid before you can re-enroll. If you owe money to the university and submit an enrollment form and payment for the current semester, you will not be enrolled in your classes; instead the payment will be applied toward the outstanding balance.
Students are held financially responsible for all courses for which they register. Past due accounts may be sent to a collection agency and reported to the credit bureau. Interest, late fees and / or collections will be added to your account. The university is authorized to garnish Alaska Permanent Fund dividends for payment of past due accounts under Alaska Statutes 14.40.251 and 43.23.073. For questions about past due accounts, contact the Student Accounts office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deferred payment agreements of any type and debts arising from contractual agreements, such as housing contracts, are legal obligations to UAS. It is important to read any contract thoroughly and to ask any questions before signing any form.
It is the student’s responsibility to make payments by the published due date. Statements will be emailed to student’s preferred UA e-mail account. Students who do not repay amounts by the designated due date will receive one additional notice. If the payment is not received by the date specified on the notice, collection proceedings which may include garnishment of student’s Alaska PFD, will be instituted to collect the debt.
A fee of $30 will be assessed for any returned check for non sufficient funds. Students who do not repay such checks will receive notice. If payment is not made by the date specified, collection proceedings will be instituted. Note: Grades, diplomas, and transcripts will not be released until all debts to the University (any campus) are paid.
