Student Financial Services Office
Payment for tuition is due by the published deadline. Students whose account is not paid in full are sent e-mails throughout the semester to their UNF email account notifying them of a debt due to the University. Students should be checking their UNF email account regularly, but at least once a week as this is our primary means of communication. Students with debts remaining at the end of the semester are sent a pre-collection letter, which gives the student 30 days to pay the University directly before collection activity begins. Once the account is sent to the collection agency, collection charges up to 33 1/3 percent are assessed and added to the balance due. Students must pay the balance in full before holds are lifted and transcripts, diplomas or registration activity can occur. Please note that the collection agencies remit payment to the University for the amounts collected the previous month so holds are not released immediately. All litigation of disputes of these charges will be done in the state of Florida.
Once your account has been sent to a collection agency, you should contact them regarding your account. You will receive correspondence from them with their contact information
You may pay at the Student Financial Services Office
you are paying in full (including the collection charge)
and with certified funds (cash, money order, cashier's check).
No, Students are sent several e-mails during the term before they are sent to a collection agency. When first sent to an agency, the agency sends out a pre-collect letter, giving the student 30 days to pay the University directly without incurring any additional charge. If the account is not paid within the 30 days, collection costs are added and the collection charge cannot be reversed.
We will contact the collection agency, verify that you've paid in full and paid with certified funds. We may lift it temporarily to allow you to register but the hold will not be lifted permanently until we receive payment from the collection agency, which will be the middle of the following month after they receive your payment in full.
