Statement of policy.

The college expects that students who receive services for which a financial obligation is incurred will exercise responsibility in meeting these obligations. Appropriate college staff are empowered to act in accordance with regularly adopted procedures to carry out the intent of this policy, and if necessary to initiate legal action to insure that collection matters are brought to a timely and satisfactory conclusion.
Admission to or registration with the college, conferring of degrees and issuance of academic transcripts may be withheld for failure to meet financial obligations to the college.

Withholding services for outstanding debts.

Upon receipt of a request for services where there is an outstanding debt due the institution from the requesting person, the institution shall notify the person, in writing, that the services will not be provided since there is an outstanding debt due the institution, and further that until that debt is satisfied, no such services will be provided the individual.
Notification that services will be withheld shall also inform the individual that he or she has a right to a hearing before a person designated by the president of the institution if he or she believes that no debt is owed. Notification shall also indicate that the request for the hearing must be made within ten days from the date of the notification.
Upon receipt of a timely request for a hearing, the person designated by the president shall have the records and files of the institution available for review and, at that time, shall hold an informal hearing concerning whether the individual owes or owed any outstanding debts to the institution. After the informal hearing, a decision shall be rendered by the president's designee indicating whether the institution is correct in withholding services and/or applying off set for the outstanding debt. If the outstanding debt is found to be owed by the individual involved, no further services shall be provided. Notification of this shall be sent to the individual within five days after the hearing.
