tuition, fees, and other associated fees assessed as a result of my

that my registration and acceptance of these terms constitutes a promissory
note (i.e., a financial obligation in the form of an educational loan as
defined by the U.S. Bankruptcy Code at 11 U.S.C. 523(a)(8) by which UNF is
providing me educational services, deferring some or all of my payment
obligation for those services, and I promise to pay for all assessed tuition,
fees and other associated costs by the published or assigned due dates.
promise to pay to the University:
student account (or enroll in a payment plan) by the published payment deadline.
I understand that UNF uses electronic billing (e-bill) as its official method
and failure to review my e-bill does not constitute a valid reason for not
paying my bill on time. E-bill is
located on myWings, Student Self-Service, Student Account, View Bill By Term. I
further understand that administrative, clerical or technical billing errors do
not absolve me of my financial responsibility to pay the correct amount of
tuition, fees, and other associated financial obligations assessed as a result
of my registrations at UNF;
original amount of my payment if it is returned by the bank for any reason,
plus the returned payment fee. A
returned payment will not absolve me of my financial obligation to UNF and I may
be restricted from using personal checks and e-checks for 1 year;
amount of any funds received by me as an overpayment or loan;
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;
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 understand that my delinquent account may be
reported to one or more of the national credit bureaus.
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 status and email account weekly and
make payment by the published deadline.
acknowledge that if I have not paid my fees or made payment arrangements prior
to the tuition payment deadline or scheduled due date I will be charged a $100

Bill does not represent actual or guaranteed payment, but is an estimate of the
aid I may receive if I meet all the requirements stipulated by the aid program. Financial aid may be revoked at a later date
and I understand I may responsible to repay those funds.
