Missed or Late Payments
What happens if my check bounces?
Any check which cannot be cashed will be charged a $35.00 fee. The University will send a new invoice to the student for the original amount with this $35.00 fee added. This policy also applies to electronic check (ACH) transactions.
What happens if my account has a past due balance?
A student with a balance of equal to or less than $50 will have a transcript hold placed on his or her account. This hold prevents the student from reviewing grades or receiving official transcripts.
A student with an outstanding balance of greater than $50 will have an accounts receivable/transcript hold placed on his or her account. This hold prevents the student from accessing his or her online courses, registering for future classes, or receiving official transcripts or a diploma.
If a balance remains unpaid, the student will be subject to the collection policies of the University. DMU also reserves the right to send a student’s account to collections or place a hold before or during classes if the student is unresponsive to school correspondence. An account will be considered past due thirty days from the date of the original invoice.
