Financial Responsibility Agreement

I understand that registration in classes at UAH will create tuition and other associated fees being assessed to my student account. By registering for classes at UAH, I understand and agree to the following: Past due balances are a debt owed the State of Alabama. If I fail to pay any unpaid balance on my student account, I will be personally responsible for, and agree to pay, all costs and fees of collection, including late payment fees, transcript hold fees, interest, collection fees of third party collection agencies or attorneys (up to 40% of the principal, interest and late charges accrued prior to referral to such agency or attorney), court costs, and/or any other charges necessary for the collection of this debt. Additionally, I understand that a hold will be placed on my account as a result of the past due balance. I authorize the University and/or their respective agents and contractors to contact me regarding my student account at the current or any future number that I provide including my cellular phone or other wireless device using automated telephone dialing equipment or artificial or pre-recorded voice or text messages. This agreement is subject to the laws of the State of Alabama, without regard to its conflict or choice of law provisions. I irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Madison County, Alabama, in any lawsuit arising out of or concerning this agreement, or the enforcement of any obligations under this agreement, including any lawsuit to collect amounts that I may owe as a result of this agreement. If UAH chooses to pursue collection of my past due debt in court, I understand that such action by UAH does not constitute waiver of any defense of any immunity that UAH may hold under applicable law, including but not limited to sovereign immunity.

Late Fees and Class Schedule Cancellation

A $50.00 late payment fee will be charged to any account not paid in full by the first official day of each semester. Immediately after final exams each semester, any student with an unpaid balance in excess of $250 that is enrolled in a subsequent semester will have that semester's schedule cancelled. If a past due balance is from a housing charge, then the University Housing Office may assess a late payment fee.

Holds

Students with any balance remaining after the Semester Due Date will receive a Transcript Hold. This hold prevents the release of a transcript until the balance has been paid. The hold should be automatically released at the top of the hour after payment is made. Visit Past Due Collections for more information. 

Please contact us to have an Accounts Receivable hold removed after payment is made, if it is not removed automatically after the top of the hour. These payments may be made with certified funds (cash, credit/debit card, cashier’s check, or money order). If payment is made by personal check or E-check, there may be a two week waiting period before holds are removed.
