BOARD POLICY SERIES NUMBER: 7060

TITLE: COLLECTION OF STUDENT FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS

PURPOSE

It is the intent of the Board of Education to balance the need for students to meet their financial obligations, for the college to minimize student loan default, establish a strong position to collect student fiscal obligations, and respond to requirements to return federal funds collected from students.

STATEMENT

A student who has an outstanding financial balance with the college will not be allowed to register for subsequent terms until the student's balance has been paid in full or cleared by the appropriate college department. In order to ensure students meet their financial obligations, the college will not release official or unofficial transcripts or other records when the student has failed to make payment on an emergency loan, deferred payment, or other college obligation. Exceptions made to this policy shall be non- precedent setting, well-documented, and result in a stronger position for the college to collect the debt or obligation owed by the student. Such exceptions will be made by the president or her/his designee.
