Payment Resources


Past Due Accounts

Payment of all tuition and fees are due by the end of the first week of each semester/payment period. If your account becomes past due, a late payment penalty charge of $200 will be assessed on subsequent bills. If your account remains unpaid/outstanding after your departure from CUSM, it may be referred to a collection agency and reported to a credit bureau.


Returned Checks

A collection fee of $25 is assessed for each check/e-check returned for non-payment including any check in which payment is stopped. The check must be paid within 10 days, or it will be turned over to a collection agency, and the student will be liable for all collection costs and any other related costs. You will receive an e-mail notice regarding the returned check. The e-mail will include instructions for clearing the returned check. If an account indicates a history of returned checks, CUSM may suspend a student’s check writing privileges.
