Returned Check Fee

​A $20 returned check fee is assessed for each check dishonored by the bank for whatever reason.

Note: Once a check is submitted by a student, it is considered to be his or her enrollment confirmation. Placing a stop payment on a check does not in any way cancel the student's financial obligation to the college, nor does it clear an enrollment record.
