The administrative hold is only removed after the outstanding balance is paid in full. Should a bill remain outstanding for an extended period of time, the account will be referred to an outside collection agency and an additional collection fee will be added to the balance due. The student will be responsible for paying this additional fee. The account will also be reported to a national credit bureau.

NOTE: Students are responsible for payment of tuition to the University, even though they may be eligible for their employer's tuition reimbursement plan. Students are responsible for making arrangements with their employers for reimbursement
