AFTER DUE DATE: If you do not pay your tuition in full by the due date, a hold is placed on your record. The results of this hold are as follows:
- You cannot register for additional classes.
- You cannot obtain or send an official copy of your Madison College transcript.
- You cannot view your grades.
- You cannot obtain an enrollment verification.
- You cannot have an admission application processed.
- Access to other records and services may also be restricted.
Partial payment: You are allowed to make partial payments online or in person. However, a hold is removed only after you pay your tuition in full. Making payments on an overdue balance will not prevent your account from being sent to collections.
Drop classes: If you do not officially drop or withdraw from your classes, you are still required to pay all tuition and fees. Non-attendance does not reduce tuition and fees owed.
COLLECTIONS: In addition to the hold, your account may be referred to an outside agency for collection and credit bureau reporting. You will be notified 20 days prior to this action occurring. We may provide that agency with your:
- Enrollment history
- Tuition payment history
- Student ID number
- Social security number
If this happens, you are responsible for all costs of collections. This may include reasonable attorney's fees incurred by the College or its representatives in connection with the collection of the past due amount.
Once your balance is paid in full, all holds are released and access to your records returns to normal. If your final payment is made online, the hold will be released the next day. Contact Financial Operations if you need to have a hold removed immediately.
