Returned Check Policy
In accordance with the Arkansas Hot Check Law, the Treasurer's
Office is authorized to assess a collection fee of $30.00, plus any additional
bank charges, for each item returned.
If the check is returned, the Treasurer's Office sends written notification within
three (3) working days to the check address or the student's permanent address.
The notice contains complete information on the check and service charge, total
balance due, accepted forms of payment, the payment deadline, and contact
Payment for returned checks and service charges are received at the University Cashiers Office (479-575-5651)
. Cash, credit card, cashier's checks, and money orders are the accepted
forms of payment. Returned checks that are left unpaid are subject
to the Arkansas Hot Check Law.
Returned checks will result in a registration, transcript, and diploma holds
until the total balance due (returned check and related charges) is paid.
Cancellation of Registration
If a returned check was used to release a hold in order to register for
a new term, the student is notified by registered mail that payment in
full must be received within 10 working days. If payment in full
is not received within 10 working days, registration for the new term
is canceled. A financial hold is placed on the student's account
barring the student from participating in registration and receiving transcripts
or a diploma until all past due charges, including the service charge,
are paid with cash, money order, or cashier's check.
