Financial Responsibility

A student who does not pay, or make and follow the conditions of a satisfactory arrangement to pay, a bill for tuition and fees shall not be entitled to attend classes, take examinations or do other work for credit, and no grade or credit will be given for any work done during the semester to which there is default. Any registration or advance registration for a subsequent semester will be canceled. The student will not be permitted to return to the school until the student (1) pays, or makes and follows the conditions of a satisfactory arrangement to pay, the student’s unpaid tuition and fees; and (2) thereafter is readmitted to the school by the dean. However, if the student then is subject to exclusion from the school for any reason other than unpaid tuition or fees, the student may be readmitted only by the Administrative Committee. The student’s required administrative withdrawal does not obviate the student’s financial obligation to the university. For purposes of the rules on academic exclusion, the student shall be treated as having withdrawn from the school without the right to return.
