Student Business Services Terms & Conditions

  1. Student Account Information. Important student account information notifications are emailed to students at their University email account. Students are responsible for checking their University email account for such notifications. Instructions for using University email accounts may be found at E-Mail Services – Webmail.

  2. Automated Dialing and Announcing Devices. The University, along with its agents, representatives and contractors, may contact me at the current or any future number that I provide for my cellular phone or other wireless device using automated telephone dialing equipment or artificial or pre-recorded voice or text messages.

Financial Responsibilities:

  1. eBill. Students must login to eBill to view and pay their student account balance online. Additional information may be found at eBill.

  2. Tuition and Other Charges. Students are responsible for payment of all tuition and other charges assessed to their student account, as published on the Payments & Cancellation page of the Student Financial Services website. The University will first apply all payments received to the oldest outstanding balances, if applicable, then to the current semester charges.

    If a student account balance becomes past due, the University may among other things:

    1. Assess late payment charges as established by the University in its sole and exclusive discretion;

    2. Refuse to allow the student to register for any future courses or semesters, receive other University services and/or receive a degree;

    3. Refuse to release official transcripts of grades to the student and/or any other person or entity;

    4. Exercise any and all legal rights it may have to collect an unpaid student account balance, including without limitation referring the unpaid student account balance to an outside collection agency, reporting the unpaid student account balance to a credit bureau, offsetting the amount due against any future state tax refunds due the student and/or filing an appropriate legal action against the student. BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, STUDENTS AGREE TO REIMBURSE THE UNIVERSITY FOR ANY AND ALL FEES, COSTS AND EXPENSES THAT THE UNIVERSITY INCURS TO COLLECT AN UNPAID STUDENT ACCOUNT BALANCE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ACTUAL COSTS, REASONABLE ATTORNEYS FEES, COLLECTION AGENCY FEES NOT TO EXCEED THE LESSER OF 33% OF THE UNPAID STUDENT ACCOUNT BALANCE OR THE MAXIMUM PERMITTED BY LAW, AND/OR ANY OTHER EXPENSES OR COSTS OF ANY KIND INCURRED BY THE UNIVERSITY TO COLLECT THE UNPAID STUDENT ACCOUNT BALANCE.


  3. Loans and Educational Benefits. The University may provide, extend or advance funds, credits and/or other financial accommodations to students, to be applied towards their tuition and/or charges, with the understanding that students will re-pay those amounts. All such amounts, other than scholarships, fellowships, stipends and/or tuition waivers, are loans and/or educational benefits which students must repay to the University together with late payment charges as established by the University. In consideration for allowing students to attend classes, students agree to repay the University for those loans and/or educational benefits.

  4. Cancellation. Students who have not paid their student account balance in full by the payment due dates established by the University will be canceled and removed from classes with a 100% tuition refund. Exceptions to the cancellation policy for students enrolled in payment plans with the University, and students whose accounts will be paid in full by third party sponsors, private scholarships or financial aid, along with the payment due dates and cancellation dates, are described on the Student Financial Services website at oakland.edu/financialservices.

  5. Returned Payments / Failed Payment Agreements. If a payment made to a student account is returned by the financial institution for any reason, the student must repay the original amount of the payment plus a returned payment charge as determined by the University. Multiple returned payments, and/or failure to comply with the terms of any payment plan or agreement entered into between a student and the University may result in cancellation of current classes and any future registrations.

  6. Dropping / Withdrawing from Classes. Students who do not drop / withdraw from their courses by the deadlines, as published in the Important Dates Calendar, are responsible for payment of all tuition and other charges, along with any installment plan charges, late payment charges and all costs and attorney’s fees incurred by the University to collect or attempt to collect unpaid tuition and/or other charges. The University will first apply all payments received to the oldest outstanding balances, if applicable, then to the current semester charges.

  7. Non-Attendance. Non-attendance does not relieve students of financial responsibility for the courses in which they have enrolled or their housing contract.

  10. Payment of Fees / Promise to Pay. Students understand and agree that, when registering for any class at the University or receiving any service from the University, the student accepts full responsibility to pay all tuition, fees, housing costs and any other associated costs as a result of the student’s registration and/or receipt of services. Each student further understands and agrees that his or her registration at the University and acceptance of these terms constitutes a promissory note agreement (i.e. a financial obligation in the form of an educational loan as defined by the United States Bankruptcy Code (11 U.S.C. § 523(a)(8)) in which the University is providing each student educational services and/or deferring some or all of the payment obligations for those services.

  11. IRS Form 1098-T.

Students who fail to provide their SSN or TIN will be responsible to pay, and/or to reimburse the University, for any and all fines assessed to the University by the IRS as a result of the missing SSN/TIN.

I hereby acknowledge receipt of Oakland University’s Student Business Services Terms and Conditions and promise to pay for all assessed tuition, fees and other associated costs by the published or assigned due date.
