Student Accounts

Late Payments

Holds

Student account balances not resolved by their due date, will be flagged with a financial hold. This financial hold will prevent students from registering for classes, changing their course schedule, participating in senior week activities, the graduation ceremony and from obtaining diplomas and/or transcripts.

Late Fees

Accounts with unresolved balances are subject to late payment fees of $100.00.

Collections

If a balance remains unpaid the account will be assigned to the Bentley University Collection Department.  If an acceptable payment arrangement cannot be reached, the account will be assigned to a collection agency.  There are several consequences that accompany that action:

  • The account will be reported in a default/collection agency status to the credit bureau.  This may prevent the student from obtaining credit in the future.
  • The student will be assessed collection fees between 25% and 50% and possible legal fees in addition to the outstanding balance owed to Bentley University.
  • Any future classes that the student plans on taking at Bentley University must be prepaid (in full) via certified funds.
