Payment of Tuition and Fees

All tuition and fees are due and payable as stated on the Bursar's webpage. Tuition and fees may be paid at the Office of the Bursar located on the first floor of Grimm Hall North (Rooms 103/104) or online through MyRecords. Failure to pay fees by the established deadlines will result in a Bursar hold and late fees.

Bursar Holds (Financial) on Unpaid Balances and Registration

Students who are past due in any debt to the university will have a Bursar hold on their account. This type of hold prevents:

  1. Registering for future semesters or classes
  2. Making changes to a current class schedule
  3. Checking into campus housing
  4. Picking up cap and gown and participating in commencement
  5. Receiving diploma

In addition, the student's meal plan may be deactivated.

Upon withdrawal from the university, accounts with outstanding balances will be transferred to CUI's collection department. Failure to pay past-due balances will result in the account being turned over to a collection agency. When the university is forced to turn the account to collections, the student shall be responsible for all additional costs of collection including attorney fees and costs. In the event of court action to enforce this agreement, the student shall be responsible for paying all court costs and fees, including attorney costs and fees.
