Delinquent Account Policy

​Central Michigan University issues monthly billing statements electronically via the QuikPAY Billing System.  Billing notifications are sent to CMU global email addresses every time a bill is ready for review. For a schedule of when these statements are issued, please visit the Billing and Payment Information page. Students are responsible for accessing their monthly statements in QuikPAY for their account balances and payment due dates. Past due accounts may be referred to a collection agency and, if referred, collection costs of up to 23% will be assessed. Once the account is referred to a collection agency, the past due account will be reported to the Credit Bureau.


Financial holds will be placed on accounts with a past due balance preventing course registration and release of transcripts. In addition, students with delinquent accounts may have a prepayment hold placed on their account, requiring payment in full at the time of registration for all future semesters. 



All payments that are received are applied to the oldest charges on an account first. Students will incur late fees if the statement balance is not paid by 5:00PM EST on the scheduled due date.
Monthly Late Fees will be assessed to the accounts as follows:

        $0.01 - $9.99 | No late fee
        $10.00 - $59.99 | $1.00 per month
        $60.00 and up | $30.00 per month
Please also note that if any portion of a past due balance includes tuition, a $100 non-payment of tuition charge will be assessed to the student account, in addition to the monthly late fee. 



A $25.00 handling fee is charged for paper and/or electronic checks returned by the bank (i.e., insufficient funds, account closed) which were presented to the university. 



CMU reserves the right to suspend campus ID privileges at any time due to a past due balance. Suspended privileges may include, but are not limited to: meal plan, computer lab, library, bookstore, flex, Student Activity Center (SAC), and telecom.



Any student registered for a Fall semester course with a past due balance of $200.00 or greater will be removed from all registered courses on August 1st.  Students will receive prior notification of the registration removal after the July billing statements have been issued (approximately the first week in July)  If past due balances are not brought current after notification is sent and before August 1st, registration from courses for the Fall semester will be removed.
