If Students pay fees with a "bounced" check that is returned to the College unpaid after Thursday, January 10, 2013, they will be assessed a $150.00 late fee and a $25 returned check fee. If full payment of the account is not made by Monday, January 14, 2013, students will be assessed an additional $300.00 late fee.
Students will be notified of a returned check via their UC Hastings email.
If your financial aid does not arrive by Thursday, January 10, 2013, you must apply for a deferred payment agreement.
Note: even if your deferred payment agreement is approved, students will be unable to pre-register for the Fall 2013 semester until the Spring 2013 tuition and fees have been paid in full.
Cash Only Status
Students who issue two or more "bounced" checks to the College are placed on a cash only status for the balance of the academic year. This status is applicable for all goods and services purchased throughout the College.
Holds on Student Records
Whenever a student's tuition and fee account or McAllister Tower account becomes past due, a hold will be placed on the student's records until payment is received. A hold will also be placed upon receipt of an unpaid (bounced) check. All services will be withheld from the student until the hold is satisfied.
Disputing Late Fees
Students who wish to dispute the assessment of late fees must do so in writing to the Associate Director of Fiscal Operations stating why they feel the fees were assessed in error. The Associate Director will respond to the request via the student's UC Hastings email within 7 working days. Appeals to the Director's decision may be made in writing to Fiscal Services Controller.
