Past Due Balance

Students are expected to pay their outstanding balance in full or establish a payment plan. If the student’s financial commitment to Montclair State University becomes delinquent at any time, Student Accounts will send the student notification to the email and/or mailing address on file. It is the student’s obligation to update any address Montclair State University has on record. Financial obligations include but are not limited to tuition, room, board, course fees, parking fines, library fines, residence hall fines and any special fees or fines charged to a student’s account. If the account remains unresolved, it will be referred to a collection agency for collection and it may also be sent to credit bureaus for reporting purposes. The University also reserves the right to pursue legal action in order to collect the balance of the debt. Once an account is placed in collection or legal action is pursued by the collection agency, the student will be liable for all collection and/or attorney’s fees (30% to 50% of the amount placed in collection).
