Delinquent Accounts

Currently enrolled students who are delinquent in repaying a loan, who are responsible for a returned check, or who have failed to timely repay other debts to San Jacinto College (not including library and traffic fines) will receive warning notices informing them that they must pay their debts by a certain date or be withdrawn from all classes. If they do not pay by the designated date, the College may withdraw them from all classes, and they may not be reinstated during that term.

Students must pay all debts—including tuition, charges, fines, returned check penalties, charges for lost equipment, rescinded financial aid, College generated loans, and restitution for loss of or damage to College property – before they may re-enroll, receive a diploma, or receive an official transcript.

Delinquent accounts sent to a collection agency may be reported to the credit bureau.

In the event of failure to pay the Installment Payment Plan (IPP) or Registration Payment Deferment (RPD) at its maturity, and if the same is placed in the hands of an attorney or collection agency, the student shall be responsible for all expenses and expenditures, cost of attorney and/or collection services incurred, protecting the College’s interest, rights, and remedies on the IPP or FASTL or returned checks.

The College assesses a late charge of $25 for late payment of any IPPs or RPDs. The College assesses a $30 processing charge for each stopped-payment check or returned check. Returned checks include electronically converted checks that have been rejected by the College bank. An individual who has had a check returned must then pay the College by cash, cashier’s check, money order, or credit card.

A student who is in default on a government student loan for attendance at San Jacinto College may not receive an official academic transcript or diploma unless the student has made six consecutive voluntary monthly payments on the defaulted loan.
