The Catalog for the University of Mount Olive states the following concerning terms of payment:
"All tuition and fees for the entire semester are due prior to the
start of class. Any accounts not paid as specified may be charged at the
interest rate of 12% per annum on any unpaid balance. Situations which
deserve special consideration should be discussed with the Business
Office prior to the first day of class. "
Students who are no
longer enrolled and have a balance remaining on their accounts will
become the responsibility of Brenda Pridgen (Student Accounts Coordinator). There is a
very strict policy regarding requests from students in this category for
diplomas and/or transcripts. Under no circumstances will these requests
be honored until the account is paid in full.
The procedures for collection of these accounts are as follows:
A letter will be sent to the student once the Business Office is
made aware that the student is no longer enrolled. This student will
have an "Account Not Paid" stop placed on their account and will be sent
three notification letters by mail.
Letters one through three will specify:
- The amount owed on the student's account.
- That the account should be paid in full within thirty days of the date of the letter.
That if it is not possible to pay the account within thirty days, the
student should contact Brenda Pridgen to set up a monthly
- That interest at 12% per annum may begin to
accrue and be added to the student's account in the month after they
cease being an active student.
2. If the student fails to respond
to the third letter (after 30 days) then the account will be sent to
3. Additionally, if a student agrees to a payment plan with the university, and then misses three consecutive payments on the plan, the account will be automatically forwarded to one of the three outside collections agencies below.
