USF System Regulation USF4.010:  Cancellation of Registration for Nonpayment of Tuition and Fees and Returned Checks In Payment of Tuition

Students not on an authorized deferred payment of tuition and fees and who have not paid their tuition and fees in full by the USF System designated payment deadline date will have their registration for the academic term canceled and will be dropped from classes. Students dropped from classes will receive no credit for courses taken during the academic term.

Returned Checks for Registration Tuition and Fees

A student’s current term registration is subject to cancellation if a check or an e-check presented in payment of tuition is returned to the University by the bank unpaid. A $100 Late Fee Payment and a $25 administrative charge will be assessed on any registration check returned to the University unpaid. Dishonored fee payment checks and associated fees must be paid within 10 calendar days to avoid cancellation of a student’s registration for the academic term.

Reinstatement from Cancellation for Non-Payment of Tuition and Fees

Students who successfully petition for reinstatement from registration cancellation due to non-payment of tuition and fees will be assessed a $100.00 late registration fee and a $100.00 late payment fee. Upon approval for reinstatement, all fees and other debts owed to the University must be paid in full before academic reinstatement will be affected.

Payment of Accounts Due the University

Charges assessed to students for loss or breakage of University equipment and/or books, fines, and other fees are due immediately. Delinquent accounts may be considered sufficient cause for cancellation of registration. USF System regulations prohibit registration, or release of transcripts, diplomas, or grades for any student whose account with the University is delinquent. Delinquent accounts may be turned over to a collection agency, and all collection costs, including legal fees, will be added to the student’s account balance. Financial aid from a succeeding academic year cannot be used to repay prior academic year debts.
