Late Payment Fee
If a student’s balance is not paid in full by the due date, a late fee of $50.00 may be assessed.
A Bursar Hold may be placed on the account of a student who owes a past due balance. The hold will prevent the student from registering for the next term, receiving transcripts, viewing grades, or receiving a diploma. Once a past due balance has been paid in full, the hold will be removed.
Check and ACH payments are periodically returned by the bank for a variety of reasons. When this occurs, the payee must repay the debt along with a penalty, and the Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine must take steps to minimize the risk of repeated returned payments.
There will be a $25.00 fee assessed for any returned check. A bursar hold will be placed onto the student account until the returned check and returned check fee have been paid by the designated due date.
