Collections

Collection of the student's account is initiated 90 days after the account becomes delinquent, providing no other college-approved payment arrangements have been made. The college will make a reasonable attempt to notify the student of the status of the account and impending collection action. While this contact usually is in the form of a letter, notification may also be made by telephone. If an individual has failed to respond to the initial contact, the debt will be referred to an outside collection agency.

Upon submission to a collection agency, individuals who still fail to pay their delinquent account may be reported to one or more nationally recognized credit reporting bureaus. If an account was reported in error, the collection agency will be notified within 30 days of the date that the college receives notification of the error.
