Students are required to affirm understanding of financial obligation to pay all tuition, fees and other associated costs assessed as a result of registration. The financial agreement provides important information about College policies and contractually binds the student to these policies.
I understand that when I register, or a college-designee who registers on my behalf, for any class at Buffalo State College or receive any service from the college, I accept full responsibility to pay all tuition, fees and other associated costs assessed as a result of my registration and/or receipt of services. I further understand and agree that my registration and acceptance of these terms constitutes a promise to pay for all assessed tuition, fees, and other associated costs by the published or assigned due date. I understand that administrative, clerical, or technical billing errors do not absolve me of my financial responsibility to pay the correct amount of tuition, fees and other associated financial obligations assessed because of my registration at Buffalo State College.
I understand and agree that if I, or a college-designee, drop or withdraw from some or all of the classes for which I register, I will be responsible for paying all or a portion of tuition and fees in accordance with the published tuition refund schedule posted on the Buffalo State College Liability website. I further understand that my failure to attend class or receive a bill does not absolve me of my financial responsibility as described above.
I understand that Buffalo State College uses electronic billing (e-bill) as its official billing method, and therefore I am responsible for viewing and paying my student account e-bill by the scheduled due date. I further understand that failure to review my e-bill does not constitute a valid reason for not paying my bill on time. E-bill information is available on the Buffalo State College Billing website.
I understand that my Financial Aid Award is contingent upon my continued enrollment and attendance in each class upon which my financial aid eligibility was calculated. If I drop any class before completion, I understand that my financial aid eligibility may decrease and some or all of the financial aid awarded to me may be removed. If some or all of my financial aid is removed, I agree to repay all removed aid that was disbursed to my account and resulted in a credit balance that was refunded to me.
I understand and agree if I fail to pay my student account bill or any monies due and owing Buffalo State by the scheduled due date, Buffalo State will place a financial hold on my student account, preventing me from registering for future classes, obtaining transcripts, or receiving my diploma.
Further, I understand and agree that If I have a balance due, I should be prepared to start a Nelnet monthly payment plan where I will be responsible to make monthly payments or pay the remaining balance. I understand that if my bill is not satisfied by the end of week four and I have not enrolled in the payment plan, I will be assessed monthly late fees. I also understand that if no payments are being made I will be assessed a late fee each month I have a remaining balance.
I understand and accept that if I fail to pay my student account bill or any monies due and owing Buffalo State College by the scheduled due date, and fail to make payments to bring my account current, Buffalo State College may refer my delinquent account to a collection agency. I further understand that I am responsible for paying the collection agency fee which may be based on a percentage at a maximum of 22% percent of my delinquent account, together with all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, necessary for the collection of my delinquent account. Finally, I understand that my delinquent account may be referred for collection to the New York State Office of the Attorney General.
