Student Financial Services Office Policies:  Statement of Financial Responsibility 

Before a student can register, they must acknowledge that they understand they are financially responsible for tuition, fees and other University charges. This is the Statement of Financial Responsibility:

 

 

 

FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY for TUITION, FEES and OTHER UNIVERSITY CHARGES

 

 

By signing this Agreement and Promise to Pay, I am undertaking a legal obligation that requires me to pay for tuition, fees, and other University of North Florida charges advanced in connection with my enrollment and/or attendance at the University of North Florida (the “University”)

I promise to pay to the University:

  •  the amount of any funds received by me as an overpayment or loan;
  • any deficiency in tuition, fees or other University charges that results from negative financial reversals or non-payment of loans or advances from federal, state, institutional, or other third party providers; 
  • any fees associated with the processing of a third party payment on my behalf; and 
  • all collection fees, including penalties, late fees, attorney’s fees, and court costs, which may add over 33 1/3% to the balance of my indebtedness.

I acknowledge that failure to officially drop class(es) during the University’s add/drop period will not relieve me of the financial obligation for those class(es).

The University’s Student Financial Services Office communicates all financial account information via electronic services using online secured portals via myWings at www.unf.edu and may send me important notices via my UNF e-mail account.  I acknowledge that I will review my account history available on myWings prior to registering for classes and before the tuition payment deadline each semester.  Deadlines and policy information are available at http://www.unf.edu/dept/controller/cashiers/    I acknowledge that it is my responsibility to review my UNF account status and email account weekly.

I authorize the University and its agents attempting to collect any debt I owe to the University to utilize all contact information I have provided to the University, including, but not limited to cell phone numbers and email addresses.  I acknowledge that any uncollected debt I owe may be reported by the University or its agent to a credit reporting agency and that such reporting may negatively impact my ability to obtain credit.

The Student Financial Services Office provides account information electronically for the following categories, and more:

  • Account History
  • IRS Tax Form 1098-T
  • Direct Deposit Authorization Form

I acknowledge that I will receive an e-mail notification to my UNF e-mail account when the account has a balance due.  It is my responsibility to review my account and make payment by the published deadline.  I acknowledge that if I have not paid my fees or made payment arrangements prior to the tuition payment deadline I will be charged a $100 late payment fee.

If my account becomes delinquent, I acknowledge that I will not be allowed to register for the next semester or receive transcripts, and, if I am a graduating student, I will not receive a diploma. 

This Agreement and Promise to Pay is governed by the laws of the State of Florida.  Any suit, action or proceeding arising in connection with this Agreement must be brought in the circuit or county courts of Duval County, Florida.  No delay or failure by either party to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement will be considered a waiver thereof. 

I acknowledge and agree that this Agreement and Promise to Pay is a promissory note, a legal debt instrument giving the University of North Florida the right to take legal action to collect the debt I have promised to pay. I waive any defense to enforcement of this promissory note,  including, but not limited to any defense that it invalid or unenforceable due to its contingent nature and the method of its execution.
