Bank drafts returned for insufficient funds or closed accounts will cause the student account to be assessed a $10.00 custom payment fee.  Requests for alternative dates for drafting, if approved, will also be assessed a $30.00. Late enrollment in the bank draft program (after the first draft date) will require the amount of missed drafts to be paid by cash, check, or credit card before the bank draft enrollment will be accepted by KWU.

Students who fail to pay any amounts when due are not eligible to re-enroll or receive grades, transcripts or diplomas until the accounts have been settled or a release has been given by the office of Student Financial Planning. The University reserves the right to charge a student for damages to University property as a result of carelessness.

Any and all collection effort expenses will be passed on to the delinquent student. The failure of the University to enforce these provisions at any one time or with respect to any one student shall not constitute a waiver of the right of the University to enforce it at any other time, at all times, or with respect to any other student.
