Collections Policy

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.
