NON-PAYMENT OF TUITION, HOUSING, MEAL PLAN AND FEES/FINES
Life University reserves the right, at any time during the quarter, to disenroll any student from classes for failure to pay tuition, housing, meal plans and fees/fines. A Student Account hold will be placed on the record of any student who has an outstanding financial obligation to the University. The student will not be permitted to register for further course work or receive (or have forwarded to external third parties) any transcripts until the obligation is settled.
Failure to pay all charges due on a student’s account will restrict their ability to register for future quarters, receive (order/send) official transcripts and diplomas or be graduated.
If charges on your student account are not made, the student will be disenrolled. This will result in the student not being eligible to continue to participate in classes, Work-Study jobs, use meal plans, remain in housing and/or the clinic/OSCE in the disenrolled quarter. Also, the student will be assessed a 25% disenrollment charge based upon the remaining unpaid charges incurred in the disenrolled quarter.
MANDATORY DIRECT DEPOSIT
Life University requires all students to set up direct deposit from their checking account. All financial aid living expense monies (financial aid that exceeds coverage of tuition and fees) are processed weekly. These living expense monies will be deposited directly into your bank account within 48 hours of processing.
The Student Accounts Department has implemented an easier way for students to manage their bank account information to receive direct deposits from Life University. Our electronic process is easy as 1-2-3. You can now add, delete or make changes to your bank account information online.
