Returned Checks

If a check or electronic check payment posted to your account is returned by the bank due to insufficient funds, closed account, invalid account number or other reason(s), the returned check payment amount, plus a $25 returned check fee will be charged back to your account. You will receive an e-mail notice regarding the returned check and a letter in the mail.

A returned check hold, which prevents registration changes and online payments, will also be placed on your account and remain until a new payment and the $25 returned check fee is submitted via cash or certified funds within 10 business days.

The $25 returned check fee is assessed for each returned item, regardless of the amount of returned check.

If an account indicates a history of two (2) returned checks, Kennesaw State University reserves the right to suspend check payment privileges. Returned checks that remain unpaid will be referred to a collection agency and/or could result in your course schedule being withdrawn or deleted.

Once an account is turned over to a collection agency, the account holder will be liable for all collection fees which may be based on a percentage at a maximum of 15 percent of the delinquent account together with all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees. At this point, the account holder will no longer be able to pay the University directly. Any communication with the University will cease, and all correspondence must be directed through the collection agency.
