2016-2017 Undergraduate Catalog

General Information

Statements concerning fees are announcements and not to be regarded as offers to contract. The University reserves the right to change fees and other charges at any time by published notice before the opening of any trimester or session.

Courses taken for audit or courses taken for reduced credit or no credit will be counted at their normal credit value in computing the amount of fees to be paid.

It is the student’s responsibility to pay fees and any other financial obligations to the University as they become due. The non-payment of any financial obligation may result in the administrative withdrawal of the student or in legal action (at the University’s option). I agree that if my financial obligations are not paid when due, and the University should retain an attorney or collection agency for the collection, I agree to pay all costs of collection, including reasonable interest, reasonable attorney's fees (even if a lawsuit is filed) and reasonable collection agency fees. I understand that the fees assessed by a collection agency will be a percentage of the financial obligation to be collected. Records, future enrollment and charging privileges will be withheld for failure to meet payment deadlines. Delinquent accounts may be referred to external collection agencies and/or may be reported to national credit bureaus. The student is obligated to pay all costs of collection including collection fees and attorney’s fees.

If the University removes a student from the class rolls for any reason, charges will be reduced according to the schedules in Refund/Reduction in Charge Schedule. Such removal will not forgive any amounts due to the University, and records and enrollment will be withheld until all obligations are cleared. See  “Transcript/Diploma/Enrollment Hold."

The appeal body for most financial matters is the Student Financial Appeals Committee. Forms are available online at www.nwmissouri.edu/bursar/forms.htm.
