Late Payment Fees and Past Due Accounts
Past Due Account Policy
Students are required to complete payment of their tuition and fees by the stated deadlines to maintain active enrollment status and eligibility to register for courses for future semesters. Late fees may be imposed if payment is not received by the due date. Wheaton College policy states that any student with a balance greater than $2,000.00 and 60 days past due may not be permitted to enroll for subsequent terms. In addition, Wheaton College policy requires the withholding of all credits, educational services, issuance of all official transcripts, and certification of academic records from any person whose financial obligations to the College (including delinquent accounts, deferred balances and liability for damage) are due and/or unpaid.
If any overdue obligation requires internal collection activity or is referred to an outside agency or attorney for collection efforts and/or legal suit, the debt is increased to cover all reasonable costs of collection, including collection agency and attorney fees and court costs. By registering for any class in the College, each student accepts and agrees to be bound by the foregoing College policy as applied to any pre-existing or future obligation to the College.
*Wheaton College reserves the right to report to a credit bureau those accounts placed with collection agencies.
