Payment Policy

Returned Check Policy

Students whose check payments are returned to Suffolk by our bank for any reason will be assessed a $25.00 returned payment fee. The original payment amount will be reversed off the student account.

A student with two (2) returned checks or ACH payments will have their check and ACH privilege revoked. Future payments will need to be made with secure funding such as a cashier's check or money order.

Returned eRefunds will be assessed a $25.00 returned payment fee. A student must ensure all the banking information for eRefund processing is current on their SU Pay portal to avoid any delays in receiving funding.

Late Payment Fee

A late payment fee is applied to a student account with an unpaid balance after the published semester due date.

To appeal this charge, please complete the Late Payment Fee Waiver form. On this form, please describe the reason for submitting the request to have your fee waived. Appeals are generally considered if there is an error by the University or if unforeseen circumstances apply.

If you wish to appeal this fee, please complete the Late Payment Fee Waiver form.

Please note

  • Appeals will only be considered if the total balance on the account has been fully resolved;
  • Appeals need to be submitted prior to the end of the semester for which the waiver is requested;
  • Appeals for late fees from prior semesters will not be accepted.
