Before a student can register, they must acknowledge that they understand they are financially responsible for tuition, fees and other University charges.
Agreements and Understandings
By signing this Agreement and Promise to Pay, I am undertaking a legal obligation that requires me to pay for tuition, fees, and other Ashland University charges advanced in connection with my enrollment and/or attendance at Ashland University (the “University”). I promise to pay to the University:
- tuition, fees and charges owed, to the extent such obligations are not paid in full at the time of enrollment
- any deficiency in tuition, fees or charges resulting from negative financial reversals or non-payment of loans or advances from federal, state, institutional or other third party
- if necessary, all collection costs, including penalties, late fees, attorney fees and court costs
I understand that the University’s Student Accounts Office communicates all financial account information via electronic services using online secured portals via WebAdvisor and may send important notices via AU e-mail accounts.
I acknowledge that I will receive an e-mail notification to my AU e-mail account when the account has a balance due. It is my responsibility to review my account through WebAdvisor and make payment prior to the start of classes.
I acknowledge that if I have not paid my fees or made payment arrangements prior to the tuition payment deadline I will be charged interest in the amount of 1.5% per month.
I acknowledge that failure to officially drop class(es) during the University’s add/drop period and/or officially withdraw from the University will not relieve me of the financial obligation for those class(es).
If my account becomes delinquent, I understand that I will not be allowed to register for the next semester or receive official transcripts, and, if I am a graduating student, I will not receive a diploma.
I authorize the University and its agents attempting to collect any debt I owe to the University to utilize all contact information I have provided to the University, including, but not limited to, home address, phone numbers and email addresses.
I acknowledge that any uncollected debt I owe may be reported by the University or its agent to a credit reporting agency and that such reporting may negatively impact my ability to obtain credit.
This Agreement and Promise to Pay is governed by the laws of the State of Ohio. Any suit, action or proceeding arising in connection with this Agreement must be brought in the courts of Ashland County, Ohio. No delay or failure by either party to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement will be considered a waiver thereof.
I acknowledge and agree that this Agreement and Promise to Pay is a promissory note, a legal debt instrument giving Ashland University the right to take legal action to collect the debt I have promised to pay.
