Okefenokee Technical College 2013-2014 Catalog
Up one level
Personal checks shall be accepted with proper identification by the college for fees, tuition, services, and bookstore items. When a bank refuses to honor such a personal check, the college shall charge a service fee to the person who presented the check. This service fee may not exceed $30 or 5% of the face value of the check, whichever is greater, plus the amount of any fee charged to the college by the bank.
Students shall be notified by mail of a dishonored check and given ten (10) days to satisfy this debt. If payment to the college in the form of cash, postal money order, or cashier's check is not made within ten (10) days, the college shall place an "administrative hold" on the student's accounts and records. Until the "administrative hold" is cleared, the student shall not be issued grade reports, transcripts, or any other student records, or allowed to register, graduate or receive college services. If the dishonored check was for tuition, the college may also administratively drop or withdraw the student from class(es).
Due diligence in collection activities will be practiced by the college, up to and including referral to court and/or collection agencies, as deemed appropriate.
