Checks not accepted by the bank for any reason are charged the penalty allowed by state law. Currently the return check fee is $17.

The University assesses a 1.5% per month late charge on the past due amount if payment does not arrive by the due date or does not cover the total amount due. In addition to the late charge, the University places a hold on future registrations, grades, and transcript requests.

If your CSU account becomes delinquent at any time, you are responsible for paying any late payment charges, collection agency fees up to 40% of the debt, and all costs and expenses including reasonable attorney fees that CSU incurs in its collection efforts. The University will not register a student, confer a degree on a student, nor provide official transcripts to any student or former student who has past due financial obligations to the University.
