If payment or financial aid has not been received by the payment deadline, your registration will be canceled. A $20 fee will be added to all checks returned for insufficient funds. All previous balances must be paid in full before a payment will be applied towards a current term. If you have any amount owed for a previous term, your payment will be automatically credited towards your previous term balance.
