Past Due Accounts

Accounts with an outstanding balance will be encumbered with a student account hold. The hold will prevent release of transcripts and diplomas, and may prevent registration changes including section changes. The hold will remain on the student account until the balance has been paid in full. A student with a hold is encouraged to contact the Office of Student Accounts.

Students whose accounts are not paid in full before the first day of class will be subject to cancellation of registration.

A student whose account is past due $25.00 or more may not make changes to his or her current registration or register for future semesters. Students who owe $25.00 or more who need to drop a course before the withdrawal deadline must contact the Office of Student Accounts for approval.

The hold will remain on the student account until the balance is paid in full.

Payment made by personal or electronic check may not release this hold until two weeks after the receipt date.

Official academic transcripts will be withheld for failure to pay tuition, for default on an education debt, or failure to repay an education grant overpayment. A single unofficial copy of the academic transcript will be provided in cases involving bankruptcy. Unofficial transcripts will be stamped with the words "UNOFFICIAL" and may note unpaid financial obligations to the University.

Upon failure to make payment when due, the University of Portland, or its assignee may, at its option declare the entire unpaid balance immediately due and payable, whatever the original scheduled due dates. If placed for collection, students will be responsible for collection costs incurred in the University of Portland's efforts to have your balance paid in full (which could be up to fifty percent of the balance due) and attorney fees (including attorney fees upon appeal or in any bankruptcy proceedings, including advisory proceedings and motion for relief), whether or not a law suit is filed.
