Legal Notice

Boston University policy requires the withholding of all credits, educational services, issuance of transcripts, and certifications of academic records from any person whose financial obligations to the University (including delinquent Student Accounts, deferred balances, and liability for damage) are due and/or unpaid. If any overdue obligation is referred either to the University Collection Department or to an outside agency or attorney for collection efforts and/or legal suit, the debt is increased to cover all reasonable costs of collection, including, without limitation, collection agency and attorney fees and court costs. By registering for any class in the University, each student accepts and agrees to be bound by the foregoing University policy as applied to any preexisting or future obligation to the University.

If your Student Account is not fully paid and you are not officially registered by the semester due date, or you default on a payment plan, you may not be entitled to University services and you will remain responsible for all charges. The following actions are taken:

  • You may be removed from official class lists.
  • You may be denied access to all University facilities and services.
  • You may not be permitted to register for classes for the next semester.

A hold is a serious action and requires immediate resolution. If the account problem is not resolved, you jeopardize your opportunity to be reviewed for Financial Aid and you may be removed from University Housing on the Charles River Campus.
