Policy on Financial Responsibility
Students incur charges for a variety of services provided by the UH System, the university and community colleges, including bookstore, security, parking, food services and residential housing. It is the expectation, as well as a condition of enrollment at the University of Houston-Victoria, that students satisfy their financial responsibilities in a timely manner. Students may be subject to one or more of the following sanctions if they are delinquent in meeting university financial obligations:
        1. Financial holds paid with a paper or electronic checks are not released until the payment has cleared
            banking processes. Generally paper checks clear banking processes within 10 business days and
            electronic checks clear within 5 business days. Financial holds paid by cash, cashier’s check, money
            order, or credit card are released within 24 hours.
        2. Late payment service fees may be assessed;
        3. Financial holds will be placed preventing the release of transcripts and further enrollment at UHV or other
            UH campuses;
        4. Credit and grades for work done may be held and grades may be changed to W for students who fail to
            pay by the end of the semester;
        5. Degrees may be delayed or not conferred until financial obligations have been satisfied;
        6. Non-payment after due notice will result in transfer of the student’s account to an outside collection
            agency with assessment of additional collection fees;
        7. The delinquency will be reported to the credit bureau which may adversely affect credit worthiness.
        8. The delinquency will be reported to the State and a hold will be activated. This hold will prohibit
            reimbursement of funds payable to the student from any state agency.
        9. In the event of default, university tuition, fees, and other charges are a debt incurred for educational
            purposes and are considered a Qualified Education Loan as defined in section 221(D)(1) of the Internal
            Revenue Code.

Returned Checks
When a check or an e-check payment is returned to the university, a $30 service charge is assessed. Students are expected to make payment in full by cash, credit card, cashier’s check or money order immediately upon university notification. Students who write or produce two bad checks to UHV or any entity affiliated or contracted with UHV, will forfeit check writing privileges.
