Holds and Delinquency

Unpaid Items

A student who is past due in any debt to the University will have a financial hold placed on his/her student account.  The student is not permitted to register in any school or college of the University and is not entitled to an official or unofficial transcript or grade report from the Office of Registration and Records and will not receive a diploma or be permitted to apply for readmission to Butler University until the balance has been paid in full.  

Any check (electronic or paper) presented to the University that fails to clear the bank is subject to a $25 returned check fee.  The fee and the returned check amount will be posted to the student's account.  If the check is for payment of a debt, it will also be considered as nonpayment. Students may also be held responsible for reasonable collections fees, attorney fees and court costs without relief of evaluation and appraisement law to collect outstanding balances.

Unpaid Tuition, Fees, Other Charges

If tuition and/or other charges post to the student's account AFTER the term ends and/or AFTER the monthly billing cycle, the student MUST satisfy the charges IN FULL before grades, transcripts, or diplomas will be released from the University.  (A Student Financials Hold All or New Graduate Hold service indicator will be placed on the account until the balance is paid in full.  The indicators prevent the release of grades, transcripts, schedule changes and diplomas.

Note:  The Office of Student Accounts reserves the right to add a Student Financials Hold All service indicator to any account with an outstanding balance that has a poor payment history.  The hold will be released when the outstanding balance is paid in full.

Delinquent Bills

Students who have not met their financial obligations to the University are refused written grades, transcripts and diplomas. Any former student with a past due balance will not be readmitted to Butler University.
