Returned Check Fee

A $25.00 handling fee is charged for checks returned by the bank (i.e., insufficient funds, account closed) which were presented to the university. Students may be involuntarily withdrawn from all classes if returned checks intended to cover tuition and/or past-due balances are not repaid as directed in the Notice of Returned Check letter. This letter will be mailed/e-mailed from the university upon receipt of a returned check.

In addition, if payment is not received within 5 business days, CMU may pursue legal action, seek criminal prosecution and/or assign the account to a collection agency.
