Any amount owed to the University including, but not limited to, tuition, fees (including late fees), room, board, loans, and amounts due for goods and services provided is considered a receivable to the University. A receivable becomes past due if payment is not received in the Business Office by the payment due date see Completing the Registration Process. At this point a $50.00 late payment fee will be charged.
At the end of the first week of class an additional $50 late fee is applied to the accounts of students who have not completed the registration process by paying their balance in full, setting up on deferred payment, or making sure they have enough financial aid in place to cover their balance.
In addition, a $15.00 late payment fee is assessed on each deferred payment not made on a timely basis. Students will not be allowed to register for another term or receive an official transcript until payment is made in full. Statements are mailed out monthly on accounts with an outstanding balance.
Students are responsible for notifying the Business Office of any address changes in order for statements to be received in a timely manner. To download a change of address form, please click here. Any changes or questions can be addressed to email@example.com, faxed to 601 318 6418, or mailed to the Business Office on your campus. The main campus mailing address is 710 William Carey Parkway, Box 2, Hattiesburg, Ms 39401. (Note: In order to change address on file for grades, the Registrar's Office should be notified on the same form).
Non-receipt of statements is not considered a valid excuse for non-payment. It is the responsibility of the individual (the student) who has incurred the debt to see that the debt is paid promptly.
